On Friday, Brendan Dassey who was one of the subjects of the popular Netflix documentary series ‘Making a Murderer’ had his conviction for the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach overturned by a federal judge in Milwaukee. The ruling was not expected and is widely being considered by many legal experts to be a surprise. The State of Wisconsin has 90 days to decide whether or not to retry Dassey or release him. Now the people behind the much-talked about documentary series are speaking on how this effects the planned second season.
“Today there was a major development for the subjects in our story and this recent news shows the criminal justice system at work. As we have done for the past 10 years, we will continue to document the story as it unfolds, and follow it wherever it may lead,” Making a Murderer‘s directors Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos said in a statement after Friday’s ruling.
