Reeves ruled competent to stand trial

A Dublin man has been ruled competent to stand trial on 10 sex charges involving a child, now his attorney wants to find out if the man was competent at the time of the alleged offenses.
Defense attorney Richard Davis Jr. said Central State Hospital has ruled that Sherman David Reeves is competent to stand trial on the charges.
Central State Hospital is a mental health facility located in Petersburg, Va.
However, Davis said an evaluation has not been completed to determine Reeves’ competency in 2007 and 2008, when the offenses allegedly took place.
Judge Robert Turk ordered the evaluation be conducted.
Reeves is charged with eight counts of sodomy on a child less than 13 years of age and two counts of sexual abuse on a child less than 13 years of age.
According to court records, three of the sodomy charges are alleged to have occurred on June 1, 2007, while the remaining offenses allegedly took place July 1, 2008.
Details of the case have not been made available.
Reeves’ court date is slated to be set Aug. 27.
