Brendan Dassey, who was featured on the Netflix docu-series “Making a Murderer,” won’t be given special treatment in his bid for clemency, despite Kim Kardashian West voicing her support, according to a report from TMZ.

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.

His legal has team 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.

Insider has contacted Evers’ office for comment.

Dasseys’ case was first featured on “Making a Murderer” in 2016, and the docu-series sparked criticism over Dassey’s confession, which many argued was coerced.

Dassey was 16 at the time of the 2005 killing, and his lawyers have argued that investigators used improper interviewing techniques when questioning him about Halbach’s death, WBAY reported. His lawyers said investigators made Dassey, who was then a juvenile, false promises about being released if he spoke about the death.

Both Dassey and Avery have said they’re innocent in the years since. Avery is serving a life sentence without parole, while Dassey is serving a life sentence with the possibility of parole.

Dassey gave an interview to Jason From for the new NowThis docuseries “Wrongful Conviction” last week, in his first interview ever.
