Teen Sentenced in ‘Slender Man’ Case Wants Early Release From Wisconsin Facility
One of the teens convicted in the so-called Slender Man case is seeking a conditional release from the mental health facility in which she lives. In 2017, Anissa Weier was sentenced to 25 years for her involvement in the notorious 2014 stabbing. Last week, she appeared in a Wisconsin county circuit court. Now 19, Weier is asking for early release. She said she was sorry and deeply regretful for her actions, and that she took full responsibility for them.
