Johnson found not competent to stand trial

A Sturgeon Bay man accused of sex crimes has been found incompetent to stand trial.  Duryea Johnson, 28, was arrested back in June by a Sturgeon Bay undercover police officer who was posing as a 15-year-old boy online.  Door County Circuit Court Judge David Weber deemed Johnson not competent to stand trial due to a court-ordered doctor’s medical report evaluation.  Johnson faces two charges of child sex crimes.  He will now be placed in a state mental health hospital for treatment by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services for up to one year.  A progress evaluation by a doctor will be done in the next three months before any future determination is made.  District Attorney Colleen Nordin says a trial will now be on hold until Johnson is competent enough to understand the proceedings, the nature of the charges and assist in his defense.
