Brendan Dassey, now 28, is serving a lifetime prison sentence for the 2005 murder of a photographer in Wisconsin.
Friday afternoon the United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals announced that in a four to three decision, Brendan Dassey's conviction for the murder of Teresa Halbach will be upheld.
By a 4-to-3 vote, the appellate court ruled that Dassey's confession was not coerced, according to the Chicago Tribune. In 2007, Dassey was sentenced to life in prison after telling authorities he and his uncle, Steven Avery, raped and killed photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005.
A federal court in Wisconsin past year found that Dassey, over the course of multiple interviews, had been tricked into confessing - both by police and an unsympathetic private investigator working for his defense attorney.
In June of this year, a three-judge panel with the 7th Circuit upheld Duffin's ruling. But, the state asked for a review from the full court - and that led to Friday's decision.
But Judge Ilana Diamond Rovner strongly disagreed.
'His confession was not voluntary and his conviction should not stand, and yet an impaired teenager has been sentenced to life in prison, ' she wrote in her dissent.

Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances". Later, in Cannes , France, Weinstein asked Noble to come to his hotel room, under false pretenses of business.
"No reasonable state court, knowing what we now know about coercive interrogation techniques and viewing Dassey's interrogation in light of his age, intellectual deficits, and manipulability, could possibly have concluded that Dassey's confession was voluntarily given", she wrote.
'I view this as a profound miscarriage of justice'.
In her dissent, Chief Judge Diane P. Wood wrote: "Without this involuntary and highly unreliable confession, the case against Dassey was nearly nonexistent".
As a result, Dassey will continue to serve out his life sentence.
Dassey's lawyers, Laura Nirider and Steven Drizin, issued a statement saying they were disappointed by the reversal and planned to appeal to the US Supreme Court.
Zellner, in various court documents, has also implicated Bobby Dassey as the real culprit of Halbach's murder.
