Geyser's attorney failed on all accounts. The judge ruled that her confession was valid and that she understood what she was doing when she waived her Miranda rights, he ruled that the venue would not be changed and that the jurors would be from Waukesha and that her case would not be moved to juvenile court.

Thanks for the update Carm. I see that the other girl's (same) motions will be heard next week. I had on my calendar, for the first of March, to look at the status of the "girl stabbers". ;)

You're welcome Molly. I heard it on local radio yesterday. It still surprises me that WI age of reason is 10 but that law avoids little monsters like this from being on the street at age 19.

Slenderman stabbing case: Morgan Geyser will be tried in Waukesha Co., trial to begin in October

http://fox6now.com/2017/02/13/slenderma ... ha-county/


Cotton said he's hired the same jury expert to help with jury selection that was used in the infamous Casey Anthony trial. Anthony was acquitted five years ago of killing her two-year-old daughter.

What the hell is this ? Hired? I thought Geyser had a public defender? And PS: Waukesha County is about as different from Orlando as night is from day.

I believe Weier's attorney has all the same issues on the docket in a week or two. Imagine they will all be denied. Nation of laws not me. Or even girls.

Carm I could be wrong, but after looking around I am pretty sure Anthony Cotton is not a public defender and was hired. He's young and is best known for getting criminals acquitted who have confessed. I couldn't find anywhere that he was appointed by the Court.


ETA
And for the record:

Anissa Weier trial is set for September 11, 2017

Morgan Geyser trial is set for October, 2017

Decision on jury sequestration in Slenderman stabbing case will be issued soon
By Derica Williams | FOX6 News | Updated July 24, 2017


WAUKESHA -- A Waukesha County judge indicated on Monday, July 24th that he will issue a decision in seven to 10 days on whether the jury in the so-called Slenderman stabbing case will be sequestered.

Lawyers for the two girls have argued a sequestered jury is needed because of the publicity surrounding the case. Attorneys believe the jury should be kept away from TV, newspapers, Twitter and Facebook.

Concerned about mock juries conducted for Geyser, Weier's lawyers argued a motion believing it would be best to have reconsideration of the motion for a jury from another county.

Meanwhile, the state asked that issue be denied and gave a rebuttal that it is not necessary to have an outside jury.

Judge Michael Bohren agreed.

Jury being selected in Wisconsin Slender Man stabbing case
By AP | Chicago Tribune | September 11, 2017


Jurors are being selected in a southeastern Wisconsin courtroom to decide the mental competency of a girl accused of stabbing a classmate in 2014 to please a fictional horror character known as Slender Man.

Fifteen-year-old Anissa Weier has pleaded not guilty due to mental illness in a stabbing that nearly took the life of classmate Payton Leutner at a park in Waukesha when the girls were 12. A second classmate, Morgan Geyser, will go on trial later.

A plea deal Weier has reached with prosecutors calls for 10 years in prison if she's found not to have been mentally ill. A judge could sentence her to as many as 25 years. If she's found to have been mentally ill, she would be committed to a mental hospital for at least three years.

By AP Wire Service | FOX6NEWS | Updated: September 16, 2017


WAUKESHA — Anissa Weier, who admitted to participating in the stabbing of a classmate to please the fictional character Slenderman will avoid prison after a jury determined Friday, September 15th that she was mentally ill at the time of the attack.
[...]
Judge Michael Bohren ordered a pre-commitment investigation report on Weier and said he would hold a hearing to decide how long to commit her after the report is completed. He could sentence her more severely than the plea agreement calls for, including up to a 25-year commitment, the same as the maximum prison time she could have received.

The Latest: Victim's parents welcome Slender Man attack plea
By Associate Press | NJHerald.com | October 5, 2017


[...]
A Wisconsin girl who repeatedly stabbed a classmate to impress the fictional horror character Slender Man has written a "very powerful letter" of apology to the victim and hopes it can be delivered to her one day.

Anthony Cotton, an attorney for 15-year-old Morgan Geyser, says she is remorseful for the 2014 attack and wrote the letter without prompting from anyone.

Geyser pleaded guilty to the stabbing Thursday in an agreement with prosecutors to avoid prison time. She and another girl, Anissa Weier, admitted to carrying out the attack in a Milwaukee-area park. The classmate survived.

Geyser sobbed in court during the plea hearing as she recalled the stabbing under questioning from the judge.
Doctors will evaluate Geyser's mental health by Nov. 13 and the judge will later determine how long she should be committed.
