A Wisconsin judge ordered the release of a girl convicted of stabbing her classmates in the infamous Slender Man attack in 2014.

In a hearing Thursday, Waukesha District Judge Michael Bohren approved the release of 19-year-old Anissa Weier from the Winnebago Institute of Mental Health, where she was originally sentenced at the age of 37 years, reports Associated Press.

In March, Weier applied for parole on the grounds that she had made great strides in her treatment and was ready to return to society.

“By asking the court for parole, I am NOT saying I have finished my treatment,” Weier wrote in a letter received by WDJT-TV on March 8. “I say I have exhausted all the resources available at the Winnebago Institute of Mental Health. If I want to be a productive member of society, I have to be part of society.”

Prosecutors responded to his request with a statement saying they still believed he was a threat to others, adding that “his mind is immature” and “prone to dangerous influences,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel previously reported. .

On May 31, 2014, Weier and her friend Morgan Geyser lured their classmate into the woods and stabbed her 19 times. They claimed they attacked them to please Slender Man, a mythical creature they read online.

At the time of the attack, the three girls were 12 years old. The victim barely survived.

Despite their young age, Weier and Geyser were tried in adult court. Weier, who was originally charged with attempted first degree murder, was eventually charged with second degree murder after a jury found her mentally ill at the time of the attack.

She accepted a plea deal in 2017 and was sentenced to a maximum sentence of 25 years in a mental health facility. His sentencing agreement allowed him to apply for a period of probation after spending at least three years at the Winnebago Mental Health Institute.

On Thursday, Bohren announced that state officials would have 60 days to prepare a release plan for Weier, the AP reports. Meanwhile, Weier remains at the Winnebago factory.

Weier is expected to return to court on September 10 if further arrangements are made.
