Mental Competency Difficulties in Crisler Case

June 24, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
The south Valley man accused of looking at child pornography in a public library will be back in court next month.Donny Crisler is supposed to be examined by a mental health expert to see if he's competent to stand trial. But attorneys are having difficulty finding a doctor to evaluate him.

Crisler is deaf and mute and requires two different sign language interpreters to communicate.

Prosecutors claim Crisler was looking at child pornography at the county-run library in Lindsay.

Crisler's attorney said it was not child pornography. He believes Crisler needs psychiatric care.
