St. Edward Man Ruled Mentally Incompetent To Stand Trial

Posted: 15 May, 2013

COLUMBUS (AP) - A 29-year-old St. Edward man has been ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial on allegations that he molested his 8-year-old niece.  Platte County District Judge Robert Steinke’s ruling followed a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation. The state evaluation said the man was developmentally disabled and was unlikely to become competent for trial within the foreseeable future. Prosecutor Demi Herman says the county will begin a civil commitment proceeding to hold the defendant indefinitely. The man had been charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child.
