Hearing set for Monday on Slauson case

News

November 5th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

A hearing has been set for next Monday, Nov. 10th, on a request by the lawyer for Atlantic woman accused of faking her daughter’s cancer, with regard to a change of venue in the case. According to online court documents, the hearing in Cass County District Court will be held 9-a.m. Monday, Nov. 10th, for 30-year old Leatha Slauson, whose trial is set to begin next Wednesday. The judge will also consider the waiving of a speedy trial in her case.

Jay Mez, Slauson’s attorney, filed the motion for a change of venue on Oct. 24th. In making the request, Mez said his client’s Nov. 12th trial should be moved due to extensive media coverage, gossip, rumors and speculation by residents in Cass County that would make selecting a fair and impartial jury impossible.

In presenting his motion, he entered into exhibit stories that aired from various media outlets, press releases that were distributed, and trial information alleging that Slauson obtained donations and other services by deception, from the community.

Earlier, Mez had said Slauson was competent to stand trial, but unable to tell right from wrong. Mez is expected to use a defense of “Diminished Responsibility” when her case comes before a jury.

Authorities say Slauson lied about her daughter having cancer, inserted a feeding tube into the 5-year-old girl and gave her drugs and cannabis oils. Slauson has pleaded not guilty to 20 counts, including assault, child endangerment and theft by deception.
