    Second Slenderman Stabbing Suspect Will Avoid Prison, Agrees to Plead Guilty by Reason of Mental Illness

    Sept 29, 2017


    The second of two Wisconsin girls who stabbed a classmate 19 times – in the name of a fictional Internet horror character known as Slenderman – will avoid prison when she enters a plea of guilty by reason of mental illness, her attorney said.

    Morgan Geyser, 15, will enter the plea Thursday to the charge of first-degree intentional homicide. She was scheduled to stand trial before a jury next month, but after her plea there will be no trial, her attorney said.

    Earlier this month, Anissa Weier, also 15, pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree homicide as a party to a crime with use of a deadly weapon. Both girls were charged as adults in the 2014 attack on Payton Leutner, then 12, in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

    “After the plea is entered, there will be an evaluation done on Morgan to determine where she will be placed and whether she still needs institutional care or something else,” her attorney, Donna Kuchler, said at a Friday press conference. “It has been a tragic experience for everyone. Our hearts go out to the victim and her family.”

    Slender Man Suspect Will Plead Guilty in Stabbing
    8 hours ago

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    One of two Wisconsin girls charged with stabbing a classmate to impress the fictitious horror character Slender Man will plead guilty in a deal that calls for her to avoid prison time, attorneys announced Friday.

    Fifteen-year-old Morgan Geyser will remain in a state mental hospital under an agreement announced in a court hearing two weeks before her trial was set to start. The deal calls for Geyser to be evaluated by doctors who will report to a judge for a determination of how long she should remain in treatment

    Geyser and Anissa Weier were charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the 2014 attack on classmate Payton Leutner. Weier pleaded guilty to a reduced charge last month, and a jury later concluded she was mentally ill at the time of the crime. She faces at least three years in a mental hospital.
    All three girls were 12 at the time.

    It's been a tragic experience for everyone" Geyser's attorney, Donna Kuchler, said after the brief court hearing. "Our hearts go out to the victim and her family. And we're very grateful that the district attorney's office gave this case the considering it deserves," she said.

    A plea hearing to make the deal official is scheduled for Thursday

    Prosecutors: Keep Slender Man attacker in hospital 40 years

    Oct 5, 2017


    WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors asked a judge Thursday to sentence a girl to 40 years in a mental hospital for stabbing a classmate in an attack she said was done to please the fictional horror character Slender Man.

    Morgan Geyser, now 15, broke down in sobs during her plea hearing as a judge asked her to recount the 2014 stabbing of a classmate in a Milwaukee-area park. A co-defendant, Anissa Weier, also admitted a role in the attack.

    An emotional Geyser referred to the victim by her nickname as she began to recount for the judge the crime for which she was pleading guilty.

    “I hurt Bella,” Geyser said, stopping several times to compose herself during the hearing as she told the judge she stabbed her classmate with a knife she took from home.

    “Anissa said that she couldn’t do it and then I had to,” Geyser said, her voice choking. When Judge Michael Bohren asked her where the girl was stabbed, Geyser said: “Everywhere.”

    The victim, Payton Leutner, survived the attack by crawling out of woods, where she was found by a passing bicyclist. All three girls were 12 at the time.

    Geyser will undergo a doctor’s evaluation by Nov. 13, and a hearing for sentencing was to be scheduled later. The defense made no request for length of sentence because the attorneys are waiting for the evaluation.

    She agreed last week to plead guilty to attempted first-degree intentional homicide to avoid prison, continuing treatment in a mental hospital instead.

    Slender Man victim still physically scarred and fearful three years after stabbing attack, mother says
    Dec. 19, 2017

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    The victim in the*infamous Slender Man stabbing shows outward signs of recovery*but still carries deep fears and insecurities, as well as physical*scars from the attack and the surgeries that saved her life, her mother says in a new court filing.

    In a compelling two-page victim impact statement, Stacie Leutner describes how her whole family has suffered along with daughter Payton, who in 2014 was stabbed 19 times by her friends Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier after a sleepover party for Morgan's 12th birthday
    Both were charged as adults and found not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect earlier this year. Experts said they suffered from a shared delusion that Slender Man — an internet boogeyman —*would harm them or their families if they didn't kill their sixth-grade classmate

    Weier's sentencing —*really the judge's parameters of her civil commitment*at a state mental hospital —*is Thursday
    On the one hand, her mother wrote, Payton has done well in the wake of the attack: She survived, she returned to school, she made new friends and traveled with them to the East Coast, and to Canada with her school's French club

    But she was different," her mother wrote. "She was more reserved and more cautious. She held everyone at arm’s length and never let anyone get too close. She immersed herself in school in an attempt to distract herself from the uncertainty of her life; everything she knew about her home and her family was different.
    "And she didn’t know how to cope with that."
    In addition, extensive scarring —*25 in all —*on her arms, leg, torso, and chest constantly remind Payton of the incident, and make swimsuit shopping a challenge.

    Stacie Leutner details theeffect on Payton's younger brother, who was 10 at the time and felt "like a forgotten child" in the wake of her return home and the constant attention she required for recovery.

    "He still struggles with ... the belief that he is somehow less important than his sister," she said

    The event also stressed her marriage, Stacie Leutner said, creating "a cavern" between the couple.
    She wrote that Payton supported the final resolutions of the cases for two reasons. First, she did not want to testify; she has never spoken of the attack since her interview with a detective from her hospital bed

    Second, she agrees that treatment in a secure hospital is best for both Geyser and Weier, even though she will not feel safe if either is ever released back into the community without supervision.
    Her mother said it was Payton's own compassion that took her into the Waukesha woods where she was attacked by the other girls she thought were friends.

    Thanks sunny.
    So sad. We've heard so much about MG & AW, not enough about Payton thru this whole thing.
    I have so many mixed emotions and feelings about those girls.
    But I feel worse for Peyton, the victim, and her family than the perpetrators.

    On Thursday, Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren ordered Weier to spend 25 years in a mental institution in Winnebago, Wis.

    “What’s best for the community may not be what’s best for Anissa Weier,” Judge Bohren said at the afternoon sentencing hearing. “I believe the maximum sentence is appropriate… to maintain safety, to maintain protection to the community, to maintain protection for Payton so she has the resources available to protect her in the future.”

    Mothers of teens who pleaded guilty in 'Slender Man' stabbing case say there were no warning signs of violence


    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Standing in a Wisconsin police station lobby, Angie Geyser said she was in disbelief when detectives, who had just interrogated her daughter, told her that her 12-year-old had admitted to a stabbing a classmate and leaving her for dead as part of a plot she and her friend had planned for months.

    “I couldn't believe what I was hearing,” Angie Geyser told ABC News’ “20/20.” “I never would have imagined that my daughter was capable of hurting another person.”

    Girl in Slender Man stabbing gets maximum mental commitment
    23 minutes ago

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    A Wisconsin girl who stabbed a classmate to curry favor with the fictional horror character Slender Man will be committed to a mental hospital for 40 years, a judge ordered Thursday, explaining his decision as "an issue of community protection."
    Judge Michael Bohren granted the maximum penalty that prosecutors had sought and discounted Morgan Geyser's youth — she was just 12 — at the time of the attack in 2014.
    "What we can't forget is this was an attempted murder," Bohren said. Earlier, he heard from four doctors who talked about how Geyser is making progress with her mental illness, to various degrees. But Bohren called the teenager "a fragile person" whose long history suffering from delusions make her a risk to hurt herself and others.


    Geyser, now 15, spoke briefly before she was sentenced, breaking down in tears as she apologized to the girl she stabbed, Payton Leutner.

Earlier, he heard from four doctors who talked about how Geyser is making progress with her mental illness, to various degrees. But Bohren called the teenager "a fragile person" whose long history suffering from delusions make her a risk to hurt herself and others.


    Geyser, now 15, spoke briefly before she was sentenced, breaking down in tears as she apologized to the girl she stabbed, Payton Leutner.

    At Geyser's sentencing Thursday, doctors who evaluated her gave conflicting opinions about the type of institutional care she needs and the severity of her continued hallucinations.
    Prosecutors presented testimony from a doctor who said Geyser reported still hearing voices from someone named "Maggie" as recently as September.
    Dr. Brooke Lundbohm acknowledged that Geyser has made significant progress over the last three years, but said she emphatically believes she is still a danger to herself and others.
    "This is not a close call," she said.
    Geyser's attorneys argued for her to be moved to a less restrictive facility with children her age and the possibility of being able to be on outings with supervision if she's well enough.


    "She has a condition she didn't choose to have," said Anthony Cotton, one of Geyser's attorneys.
    They argued in court documents that she suffered from schizophrenia and psychotic spectrum disorder, making her prone to delusions and paranoid beliefs. But three doctors the defense called Thursday said she no longer shows psychotic symptoms and would benefit being in a residential facility where she can socialize with other teenagers. She's currently at a state mental facility with adults and doctors said she is the youngest patient there.

    "I believe at the present time she is no more dangerous than any adolescent her age," said Dr. Kenneth Robbins.
    Geyser pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree intentional homicide in October in a deal with prosecutors to avoid prison. She may seek conditional release before the 40 years are up.
