Court of Appeals Letters are on the front burner, as we hope that by writing letters to Judges Paul Reilly, Lisa Stark, and Lisa Neubauer (Court of Appeals) we can provide them with a different perspective concerning Morgan Geyser’s case. We would like to remind them that Morgan is a 13 year old child (barely 12 at the time of the incident) with untreated schizophrenia.
We need to remind them that scientific studies have shown that children are not developmentally capable of understanding the cause/effect of their actions in the same manner as adults, which is precisely why the juvenile court system exists. If the severity of the crime dictates whether a child should be tried in adult court, then we have truly lost track of what “a concern for justice, peace, and genuine respect for people” means.
We must remind them that Morgan needs and deserves treatment, care, compassion, and understanding. Morgan is a mentally ill child, and like any child suffering from illness she needs support and help, not exile!
Please write respectfully to Judges Paul Reilly, Lisa Stark, and Lisa Neubauer asking them to move Morgan’s case to juvenile court. Letters should be sent to the following address:
Judges Paul Reilly, Lisa Stark, and Lisa Neubauer
