Dassey wants release while AG appeals conviction overturn

Posted: Updated:

MANITOWOC  (WKOW) -- Brendan Dassey formally asked a judge Wednesday to release him from prison while the Wisconsin attorney general appeals a federal judge's decision to overturn his murder conviction.
     Dassey's attorney argued her client has been held in custody since he was 16 years old for a conviction that a court has now overturned.
           She also said he does not have a criminal record and that his family is prepared to help supervise his release.
    Dassey and his uncle, Steven Avery, were convicted in the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.
    Last month, a federal judge overturned Dassey's conviction, saying his confession was coerced.
