High Court Mulling Review Of Dassey Case

The U-S Supreme Court will discuss whether it should hear an appeal from convicted killer Brendan Dassey during a session coming up June 14th. Attorneys for Dassey, who was 16 when he confessed to being involved in the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach in Manitowoc County, filed the final motion in the highly-anticipated appeal last Friday.  After the discussion, four of the nine justices will have to vote for the review for the process to move forward.  Failing to get those four votes would mean the last court ruling — which upholds Dassey’s conviction — would stand.  He and his uncle, Steven Avery, are both serving life sentences for the 2005 murder of Halbach.  The June 14th discussion date was posted on the high court’s official calendar this week.
