Judge OKs 'Making a Murderer' Star's Release from Prison
'Making a Murderer' Star Judge Oks Release from Prison But With Several Conditions

Brendan Dassey -- the man who was convicted for helping Steven Avery in a murder chronicled on "Making a Murderer" -- was just ordered released from custody by a federal judge.
The judge issued the order Monday but tacked on several conditions for his release -- including Brendan can't leave the eastern part of Wisconsin, can't obtain a passport, and can't possess weapons or controlled substances.
Brendan's also been ordered not to have any contact with Steven Avery or the family of the victim, Teresa Halbach. He must also provide by Tuesday an address of where he'll live.
A judge overturned Brendan's conviction after ruling that prosecutors violated his constitutional rights, when, among other things, they interrogated him without an adult present. Brendan was only 16 at the time.
Brendan had remained behind bars while the Wisconsin Attorney General appealed the decision, but the new ruling sets him free.
