Brendan Dassey's attorneys file new documents outlining why he should be released

Brendan Dassey's attorneys on Tuesday, December 6th filed new documents outlining why Dassey should be released from prison.

Dassey was convicted in 2007 of helping his uncle Steven Avery kill Teresa halbach.

A judge threw out that conviction -- saying Dassey was coerced into confessing.

The state appealed that decision, and the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals stayed the motion.

The state has two weeks to respond to Tuesday's briefs from Dassey's attorneys.
