Avery and Dassey were arrested in 2005 and 2006 respectively for the October 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. Though Avery has maintained his innocence throughout the case, the allegation that he may have molested Dassey casts major doubts on the validity of the nephews confession.
In the transcript, which is available on The Wrap, Dassey admits to officers that Avery touched him through the pants on several occasions. He says he would try to get [him] off of me, but Avery would wrestle and overpower him.
Also obtained is a transcript of a phone call Dassey made to his mother shortly after the interrogation, in which he relays the alleged details of his confession to her.
Interestingly, though the transcripts were included in Avery and Dasseys criminal trial, no charges against the former were filed for sexual assault.
Averys legal team has since denied Dasseys molestation allegations.
