AUBURN – District Judge Julie Smith has ruled a 19-year-old Auburn man incompetent to stand trial.

Antony Fralin is charged with three counts of first degree sexual assault. The charges allege a victim that is mentally or physically incapable of resisting.

Nemaha County Attorney Louie Ligouri provided the judge with a document on Wednesday, which the judge then ordered sealed.

The judge ruled that Fralin is incompetent to stand trial now, but may become competent later. She ordered Fralin into the custody of state Health and Human Services to restore competency.
