The case of Steven Avery & Brendan Dassey captivated millions when their story was documented in the 2015 Netflix series. Were they guilty? Were they innocent? Did they get fair trials?

Anyone who has seen the documentary series knows that there aren't any definitive answers to the above... but it definitely made people reconsider the case.

Since the series, people have worked to advocate for Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey. Those efforts brought Brendan's case to the US Supreme Court which on Monday announced that it would NOT see his case. Which means that Brendan Dassey's current guilty conviction will stand.
