Brendan Dassey, who was convicted of the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach alongside his uncle Steven Avery, has served more than 13 years in prison.
Dassey was featured on the Netflix docu-series "Making a Murderer."
His legal team has filed for clemency, and last week Kim Kardashian West urged Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers to read a handwritten letter from Dassey.
A representative for Evers told TMZ, however, that Dassey's case will be given the same review process as any other case, and he won't receive any special treatment.
