Competency evaluation requested for Perrysburg man


A competency evaluation has been requested for a Perrysburg man accused of gross sexual imposition.

William K. Stanley, 79, filed a waiver to be excused from appearing for arraignment Jan. 27 in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.

He was indicted earlier this month for gross sexual imposition, a fourth-degree felony.

Defense attorney Sara Roller requested a competency evaluation.

Wood County Chief Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Pamela Gross did not object.

On Oct. 28, Stanley allegedly had contact with another male whose ability to resist or consent was substantially impaired because of his physical condition.

Roller said her client was placed in a locked-down memory care unit in Toledo shortly after this alleged incident and did not always understand what was going on.

She entered a plea of not guilty on behalf of Stanley.

Kuhlman granted an own recognizance bond on conditions that the defendant remain in the care facility.

A competency hearing was scheduled for March 30.
