Brendan Dassey has hundreds of more supporters.
A group of about 250 advocates and celebrities this week wrote an open letter to Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers asking for a pardon or an early end to Dassey’s life sentence.
The letter says Dassey was tricked into confessing about the murder of Teresa Halbach back in 2005. Governor Evers has said he is willing to pardon some people in Wisconsin, but not until they finish their prison sentence. Dassey is serving a life sentence.
