Wisconsin governor rejects 'Making a Murderer' pardon bidThe request from Brendan Dassey filed in October does not meet the criteria for a pardon consideration because he has not completed his prison sentence and he is a required to register as a sex offender, the letter from Evers’ pardons board released by the governor’s office said. Advocates have been clamoring for Dassey to be freed but ran out of options in the courts after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear his latest appeal. Evers has also made it a policy not to consider requests to commute prison sentences.
