It is being reported on July 27, 2016 that the two 12-year-old girls who stabbed their classmate 19 times will stand trial as adults. An appeals court in Madison, Wisconsin decided that they should be tried as adults, facing up to 65 years in prison. If they were tried as juveniles, they would only be incarcerated up to the age of 18.
It is being reported on September 21, 2015 that the trial for two 12-year-olds who are charged with stabbing a friend 19 times has been delayed. The two young girls were tried as adults but their lawyers want to move the trial to the juvenile courts. The trial was scheduled to begin on October 15th but is now delayed pending a decision by the appeals court on whether they can be moved to juvenile court.
