The two girls who stabbed their classmate 19 times and claimed it as a tribute to an internet fictional character Slender Man have been found competent to stand trial by a judge in a Wisconsin courthouse.

The decision happened on Thursday after two hearings for the two girls, and the decision was made by Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Bohren.

One of the girls, who had shackles on, told the judge that she did not believe she was competent to stand trial.

Former Disney Channel Star Jake T. Austin Found NOT Guilty In His Hit & Run Case! Details HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersYoung HollywoodAlcohol

the fosters jake t austin gets off with no charges in hit run case yikes

Well, this is good news for him?!?

Last year, former Wizards Of Waverly Place actor Jake T. Austin got into a spot of trouble when he was driving and hit three parked cars in Sherman Oaks, CA at 3 a.m. then left the scene (and the car???) in an Uber.

Well, the actor was charged for the crime back in July — but it looks like he's walking away scot-free!

The judge found him NOT GUILTY, and he didn't even need to show up for court!

Jake supposedly got off because even though he left the scene before cops got there, he still reported the accident in the proper amount of time.

Talk about a legal loophole!

Not to mention that even if he WAS drinking and driving, he was safe from DUI charges because the cops never saw nor talked to him that night, so they couldn't prove that he was, in fact, drunk.

Luck was on his side, we guess.

Adrian Peterson, NFL running back, is currently suspended from the Minnesota Vikings.

He's facing child abuse charges for the overzealous disciplining of his son with a switch (thin tree branch). After the whole Ray Rice domestic violence scandal, the NFL was closely watched for how they'd react.

Peterson ended up being suspended and forced to stay away from all team activities.

Now he's due to appear in court this morning for his first hearing.

Apparently, not everything is better when it's bigger, or at least that's what Starbucks seems to think!

The coffee giant has decided that for some customers, a 12-ounce drink is just too big… so select stores will start offering a smaller, cuter 10-ounce size Mini Frappuccino!

San Diego was their test site over the summer, and now Houston and Denver will have
