They are charged as sane adults.... however, they are both now pleading/claiming some mental disease defense. It remains to be seen, what a jury will think.

Sept. 11 trial date set for Anissa Weier, one of two girls charged in Slender Man stabbing

Feb. 20, 2017

WAUKESHA - Anissa Weier, one of two girls charged in the Slender Man stabbing case, will stand trial starting Sept. 11, and her bids to have her statements to police blocked from the trial and a jury to be called from outside of Waukesha County were denied Monday.

Last week, Circuit Judge Michael Bohren made similar rulings against Morgan Geyser, 14, and set her trial for October.

Both girls were 12 when they were charged as adults in June 2014 with the attempted first-degree intentional homicide of a sixth-grade classmate to please Slender Man, an internet boogeyman. Geyser and Weier told police they believed Slender Man would kill them or their families if they didn't kill Payton Leutner, who had to have several surgeries to survive 19 stab wounds.

For years, the case against both girls proceeded mostly on the same schedule, but in December Bohren granted the defense its only pretrial wins, ordering that Geyser and Weier be tried separately.

Since their arrests May 31, 2014, Weier has been held on $500,000 bail at a juvenile detention center in West Bend where most juveniles spent less than a week. Both she and Geyser spent some time in 2014 at Winnebago Mental Health Institution while experts assessed their competence to understand the charges and assist in their own defense.

During those sessions, Geyser was diagnosed with early onset schizophrenia but didn't get any treatment until she was civilly committed by a different judge more than a year ago. Since then, she stayed on and off at the Winnebago facility but has remained there since last summer.

Both girls have entered pleas of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect. Weier's attorneys had challenged the constitutionality of the state's standard for the defense, as applied to a 12-year-old girl. Bohren denied that motion Monday.

Much of the delay in the case came from efforts to have their cases transferred to juvenile court, which were ultimately unsuccessful.

If convicted, they face up to 45 years in prison. Had they been adjudicated delinquent, they would have been held up to two years at Wisconsin's juvenile prison for girls, and then put on a more intensive community supervision than adults typically face after their prison terms.

I missed the last pre-trial hearing (held earlier this month)..... and just found this link that includes videos of the hearing. The main topic of the hearing, looks to be a questionnaire to be used for the jury selection process.

From the link above, it seems that Weier and Geyser had separate hearings. Weier made a public appearance in the courtroom, while Geyser attended her own hearing only by video. Though the video monitor showing Geyser had really, really bad lighting, it seems like Geyser was wearing Harry Potter shaped glasses.

Geyser's attorney made a statement, one that "he's never before been through the process of using a jury questionnaire" .....and I note that Geyser's attorney looks to be fairly young for an attorney. While young and inexperienced, he did still impress me with some of his convincing arguments to the judge.

It seems odd to me that Geyser didn't appear to have an attorney at her side, as she watched the hearing by video.

Thanks, I bookmarked it to watch later. Since they allowed this to be videoed, I wonder if the trial will be livestreamed.

Trial is scheduled to start Sept. 11th.

15-year-old Weier pleaded guilty on Monday, August 21st to an amended charge of attempted second degree intentional homicide, party to a crime with use of a deadly weapon in the so-called Slenderman case.

The jury will have to decide whether Weier is guilty, in which case the state recommends 10 years in prison or if she’s not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect. In that case, Weier would be committed until at least July 2020.

Doing the math..... crime committed in June 2014. I'm thinking that it appears that there isn't all that much difference in the length of time between the two sentencing possibilities.

Anissa Weier pleads guilty to amended charge in so-called Slenderman case

Weier testified during a hearing on Monday and indicated to the court that she understood the amended charge now facing her — and that she admitted to being a party to a crime.

The court accepted Weier’s guilty plea — and she was indeed found guilty of the amended charge. The court then indicated the case would move on to a second phase, where a jury would determine whether Weier is guilty by reason of mental disease or defect.

The court indicated to Weier that the new charge comes with a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and another 10 years of extended supervision. If Weier were found to be guilty of mental disease or defect, the court said she would be held at a state institution.

Morgan Geyser is due in court in Waukesha County on Monday afternoon. Her trial in this case is set for October.

http://fox6now.com/2017/09/10/jury-s...rman-stabbing/

Excellent article at link, outlining what to expect at this trial....

Waukesha County Judge Michael Bohren has set aside up to two weeks for the trial. A valid verdict needs at least 10 of the 12 jurors to agree. The defense has the burden of proving Weier was mentally ill at the time of the attack and whether, as a result of that illness, she couldn’t appreciate how wrong her actions were or follow the law.

Weier told a judge during her plea hearing in August that she believed Slenderman would attack her and her family if she didn’t kill the classmate. Psychologists have testified that she suffered from persistent depression and a delusional disorder linked to schizotypy, a diminished ability to separate reality from fantasy. It’s unclear what evidence Weier might present.

defense has run out of available witnesses this morning, so looks like jury is going to get a 2 hour lunch break (they are sequestered). Judge indicates that court will resume at 1 o'clock central time.

This verdict is a good one, perhaps. Time will tell.
