The legal team for Brendan Dassey, one of the convicted killers at the“Making a Murderer,” is petitioning the governor of Wisconsin to grant him clemency. When Dassey was 16 years old, he confessed to helping his uncle kill photographer Teresa Halbach. Now 29, he has served more than 13 years in prison. But critics and his lawyers claim he was coerced into a false confession.
Dassey’s. But now, his attorney Laura Nirider is turning to Wisconsin’s new Democratic governor, Tony Evers. “We’re filing a petition for executive clemency with Governor Tony Evers of Wisconsin,” Nirider told “CBS This Morning” co-host Anthony Mason.
