MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A man convicted as a teen in the case featured in the Netflix series “Making a Murderer” faces a deadline to tell authorities where he plans to live once he is released.
Brendan Dassey has until noon Tuesday to give probation officers the address. A judge overturned Dassey’s conviction in August and on Monday said he should be released while prosecutors appeal.
It’s not clear when Dassey will be released. Authorities may need to inspect his home.
Dassey’s attorney, Steve Drizin, says he expects Dassey to be home by Thanksgiving.
Dassey was convicted of helping his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill Teresa Halbach. Dassey was sentenced to life in prison in the 2005 slaying.
The case won more publicity last year when Netflix first broadcast “Making a Murderer.”
