Sturgeon Bay man accused of sex crimes ordered to undergo competency evaluation 

Duryea Johnson of Sturgeon Bay will be evaluated for competency before going on trial for child sex crimes he is accused of committing.  Last Friday, the 28-year-old Johnson appeared in court for a preliminary hearing stemming from his arrest on June 25 by a Sturgeon Bay undercover police officer who posed as a 15-year-old boy online.  Johnson sent text messages asking for a meeting for sex, according to the criminal complaint.  District Attorney Colleen Nordin explains how the process will play out.

 

 

Nordin says the proceedings are effectively suspended until the determination of Johnson's competency is completed while he is held on bond.  Johnson faces two charges including one count of causing a child older than 13 to view or listen to sexual activity and another count of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime.  The next scheduled hearing will be October 7th, according to Nordin.
