Federal appeals court: Oral arguments set in Brendan Dassey’s appeal
CHICAGO — A federal appeals court has scheduled oral arguments for Tuesday, February 14, 2017 in Brendan Dassey’s case in connection with the murder of Teresa Halbach.
Dassey and his uncle, Steven Avery, are serving a life prison terms for the 2005 murder of Halbach.
Earlier this year, a federal judge tossed out Dassey’s confession and the conviction. The state, however, appealed that ruling — sending the case to the appeals court in Chicago.
According to the order issued on Wednesday, December 28th, each side will have 15 minutes to present to the judges. A decision would be issued sometime after that.
