Brendan Dassey remains behind bars at Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage.

As of Tuesday afternoon, there was no word from the Attorney General's office regarding the status of an emergency order filed to try and block Dassey's release.

His attorney hopes to have Dassey, 27, home by Thanksgiving.

Dassey was convicted in 2007 of participating in the murder and rape of Teresa Halbach at the home of his uncle, Steven Avery, in Manitowoc County in 2005. 

A judge sentenced him to life in prison. Avery was also convicted and sentenced to life.

Their case was spotlighted in the Netflix series "Making a Murderer."

But over the summer, a federal judge tossed out Dassey's conviction. He ruled that a confession Dassey made to investigators was coerced.

The state is appealing that decision.

Monday afternoon, the same judge ordered Dassey be released from prison during the appeals process, prompting Attorney General Brad Schimmel to file an emergency order to try and stop his release.

Dassey had to provide probation officers with the address he'd be living at by noon on Tuesday.

Probation officers may inspect the residence.
