The Justice Department is trying to block the release of a Wisconsin inmate whose case was featured in the Netflix series “Making a Murderer.”

Brendan Dassey is urging a federal appeals court to releases him from prison.

After a federal judge overturned the conviction in the death of a photographer, the state Justice Department has appeared the ruling, the Las Vega Review-Journal reports. 

That hasn’t stopped a judge from ordering Dassey’s release from prison by this evening.

The Justice Department argues Dassey’s confession was voluntary and that he is a risk to society.

Dassey’s attorneys countered that he has behaved well in prison and poses no danger to society.
