Brendan Dassey's attorney filed a reply Tuesday to the state's response to his motion for release.

Dassey's lawyer concludes the 12-page petition by stating:

"In short, the Respondent’s arguments against bond are conclusory, ill-supported, and not worthy of any weight. Petitioner Brendan Dassey therefore respectfully asks this Court to grant him his freedom by issuing a recognizance bond pending the Respondent’s appeal or, in the alternative, a bond with a reasonable and affordable surety."
