Man charged in sexual assault of 10-year-old girl found competent to stand trial
Stephon Mosley, charged in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl, has been found competent to stand trial.
Mosley is accused of forcing the young victim into a backyard near 15th and Orchard streets on the morning of December 16 as she walked to school. A neighbor saw what happened and Mosley ran off as the neighbor ran over to stop the attack.
Milwaukee police caught up with Mosley after distributing a photo captured from surveillance video during his visit to a neighborhood store.
During a competency hearing Wednesday, Dr. Robert Rawski said he interviewed Mosley for nearly two hours to reach his conclusion.
Dr. Rawski testified the defendant claimed he suffered from auditory hallucinations and memory loss. But the medical professional said Mosley was not consistent in proving that. For example, pretending he didn't know what it meant to plead guilty, but later confirming he did just that for a previous criminal charge.
Testimony also revealed Mosley was embarrassed by the allegations against him, which he stated, as \"touching a girl in the wrong area with his hand.\"
\"He eventually revealed that he had turned himself in. He had seen himself on the news,\" said Dr. Rawski. \"He reported that the incident occurred around the block from where he lives with his mother. He was capable of offering all the contextual details about his whereabouts.\"
Mosley is being held on $50,000 cash bail. He returns to court for a preliminary hearing on February 9.
