Wisconsin — Anissa Weier, 16, pled guilty in August to being a party to attempted second-degree homicide. Weier was one of two Milwaukee-area girls charged in the 2014 attempted murder of a classmate to impress a fictional horror character known as “Slender Man”. However, a jury agreed in September with her claim that she was not responsible for her actions because of mental illness. The finding by the jury ensured that Weier, now 16, would be sent to a mental hospital for not less than three years. The sentence of 25 years is the maximum under the circumstances.
