Attorney: Slender Man Stabber's Confession Should Not Have Been Allowed in Trial
Her appeal challenges whether she really had the ability to waive her rights against incriminating herself.
"When she said she would give a statement waiving her rights, she didn't have any comprehension of what those rights were," Geyser's attorney, Matthew Pinx, said.

"We are deeply concerned that this was simply not a lawful or constitutional waiver of her rights," said Marsha Levick of the Juvenile Law Center.
