A DC Superior Court judge granted a defense attorney’s request to transfer his client from DC Jail to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, DC’s psychiatric institution.
The defendant is charged with second-degree child sexual abuse in a domestic violence case.
Following a preliminary screening, the defendant was found incompetent to stand trial.
During the June 8 hearing, Judge Jonathan Pittman ordered a full competency evaluation for him to take at the hospital.
The defendant’s next hearing is scheduled for July 8.
