In 2015, the documentary series Making A Murderer reached millions of viewers around the world. The series tells the story of Steven Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey. Both were convicted of murdering Teresa Halbach in Manitowoc County. Now, Dassey is asking Gov. Tony Evers for executive clemency.
Dassey was just a teenager when he was sentenced to life in prison. And the series raised a lot of questions about his conviction, which largely hinged on a confession that his legal team says was coerced.
