"Judge orders defendant's mouth taped shut"
Easier to tape his mouth shut than to decide if he's competent. Sorry, who's crazy? The accused, or the judge?
' Frasure was convicted of felony theft in 2008, but the judge retained jurisdiction for sentencing depending on Frasure's response to treatment. In October, Frasure was released from a state mental hospital in Blackfoot. He is accused of violating his probation by not taking prescribed medication. During the hearing, witnesses told the judge that Frasure's behavior had been strange and erratic since his release from the state hospital. They also said he has not been taking his medication and has been consuming alcohol, factors also contributing to mood and emotional swings. "He's obviously not mentally competent," Frasure's lawyer Kent Reynolds told the judge. Earlier in the hearing, Reynolds had asked the judge to order a mental competency evaluation for Frasure. McDermott said he would consider the request, but did not immediately rule on it. McDermott placed Frasure under the jurisdiction of the Idaho Department of Correction. He is being held in the Bannock County Jail awaiting transfer to a state facility. Officials, citing privacy rules, declined to say where he would be transferred. '
