Nancy Grace SLAMS Brendan Dassey’s Overturned Conviction — And Gets Promptly Schooled By Lawyer!

She just got law schooled!

There may still be a strong debate over whether Making A Murderer star Steven Avery actually murdered Teresa Halbach, but the same can’t be said about Avery’s nephew Brendan Dassey — whose conviction of Halbach’s rape and murder was overturned by a federal judge last week.

Most people who watched the Netflix docu-series cheered over the case’s newest development, but Nancy Grace isn’t among those applauding the release of the 26-year-old.

On Monday night’s taping of her HLN show, Grace asked attorney David Bruno to explain how a judge could overturn Dassey’s conviction.

The attorney cited the fact that Dassey’s statement was not voluntary, and video evidence shows that officers used “promises and pressures” to coerce him into involuntary confession during his interrogation.

But Grace wasn’t impressed by that answer, and responded by saying Dassey couldn’t have been a victim of a coerced interrogation because he “wasn’t mentally ill” and has an IQ “within the normal range.” (Dassey reportedly has an IQ of around 70, which is usually gauged to be between “very low” and “extremely low”.)

Bruno swiftly clapped back at Grace’s generalization, and tried to explain how the overturn was based on the “totality of the circumstance” — though that didn’t seem to satisfy Grace either.
