The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied Making a Murderer subject Brandon Dassey a new trial and ruled his confession was not coerced, according a report from WGN9. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided that police properly obtained Brendan Dassey's confession, and he should remain in prison.

The majority ruling states, "Whether Dassey's confession was voluntary or not is measured against a general standard that takes into account the totality of the circumstances".

Dassey's conviction stands and he will not get a new trial.

Fifteen months ago, a federal court in Milwaukee overturned Dassey's conviction that he murdered Teresa Halbach in 2005 with his uncle, Steven Avery.

Dassey was 16 when Halbach was killed.

Attorneys for a Wisconsin inmate featured in the popular "Making a Murderer" series say they're "profoundly disappointed" that an appeals court has overturned a ruling that could have set him free.

A federal magistrate judge overturned Dassey's conviction past year, ruling that detectives took advantage of Dassey's youth - he was 16 at the time - and learning disabilities to coerce his confession.

"Today's ruling contravenes a fundamental and time-honored position of the United States Supreme Court: interrogation tactics that may not be coercive when applied to adults are coercive when applied to children and the mentally impaired", they said in a statement.

After the decision from that full court, the only option left for Dassey is to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case, Berk explained.

Brendan Dassey won't be leaving prison after all.

. A three-judge panel from the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed. The hit Netflix true crime series Making a Murderer brought national attention to Dassey and Avery's cases, and highlighted issues with the justice system.
