Slender Man Stabbing: Morgan Geyser, 12, To Undergo Mental Evaluation

Wed, June 11, 2014 3:51pm EDT by 4 Comments

On June 11, the defense team for alleged Slender Man stabber Morgan Geyser, 12, requested that she undergo a competency evaluation. Interestingly enough, the team for Anissa Weier, also 12, did not make a similar request.

Morgan Geyser, 12, has been ordered to undergo a mental competency evaluation after allegedly stabbing her friend 19 times as a sacrifice to the creepy fictional character Slender Man. During the same hearing, Morgan’s alleged co-conspirator Anissa Weier, also 12, did not receive an order to undergo a competency evaluation.

Slender Man Stabber Morgan Geyser To Receive Mental Evaluation

The alleged Slender Man stabbers of Wisconsin made their second court appearance on June 11.

During the hearing, both Morgan and Anissa, just 12-years-old, shuffled into the courtroom with shackles around their wrists and ankles. A troubling sight which served as a reminder that these girls are just that — girls.

Each girl appeared before commissioner Laura Florian Lau separately, with Morgan making the first appearance.

Morgan’s legal team immediately requested for their client to receive a competency evaluation by a court-ordered doctor.

“At this time we intend to raise the issue of competency,” Morgans lawyer told the judge at the beginning of the hearing. “We’re asking that Ms. Geyser have a competency evaluation. We have reason to believe that there are issues with her competency, and so we would ask that the court appoint a doctor for that purpose.”

The state did not object to this request, and the judge agreed for Morgan to undergo the requested competency evaluation. It was also declared that the evaluation results would be sealed and remain confidential, which means the public will not have access to them just yet.

For now, Morgan is still being charged as an adult and faces up to 65 years in prison for allegedly stabbing her friend on May 31 in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Anissa Weier Will Not Undergo A Competency Evaluation

Moments after Morgan was brought back into custody, the court brought out her friend and alleged co-conspirator, Anissa.

As soon as Anissa entered the room in the video above, you can clearly hear someone begin to cry in the rows behind her.

In an interesting turn of events, Anissa’s legal team did not request a competency evaluation.

“I can also let the court know that we’re still assessing our clients ability to understand the proceedings,” Anissa’s lawyer explained. “I’m not going to raise the issue of competency today, but I can let the court know that that could become an issue later on down the road.”

Both girls will appear in court again on July 2 at 8:30am.

The stabbing victim is reportedly doing well, and has even been released from the hospital. She remains unidentified.

This was the girl who showed no emotion before, described as the dominant one, and seemed like a psychopath. But she has a private psych eval, private defense lawyer, so she won’t do jailtime. The other girl, who has a public defender, will probably not get away with a slap on the wrist. Looks like being poor is the crime our criminal justice system really punishes

Morgan appears to be a cutter if you notice how she holds onto the edges of her sleeves in the majority of the photos, always wearing long sleeves even indoors. The other one, maybe if she came out if the closet she wouldn’t have been so enraged. The victim of this crime is most likely far more attractive than either if these two. Prayers to her and her family.

If this weren’t America, where parents have pretty much forgotten how to raise their kids, I would say that they girls are old enough to know better. But it’s America.

The photo that you have posted is not that of Anissa Weir. It is mislabeled.
