ADVANCE FOR USE SATURDAY, DEC. 24 - FILE - In this March 3, 2006, file photo, Brendan Dassey, is escorted out of a Manitowoc County Circuit courtroom in Manitowoc, Wis. A federal magistrate judge had ruled in August that investigators coerced Brendan Dassey, who was 16 years old at the time and suffered from cognitive problems, into confessing. He was sentenced to life in prison in 2007 in the slaying of photographer Teresa Halbach. He had told detectives he helped his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill Halbach at the Avery family salvage yard in Manitowoc County. Dassey's release appeared imminent until the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago stepped in at the last minute and decided to keep Dassey behind bars while state attorneys appealed a decision which overturned his conviction.(AP Photo/Morry Gash, File)
