ASSAULT SUSPECT: Order For Competency Evaluation
A suspect linked to an alleged sex assault in Story County will be examined to see if he’s competent to stand trial.
Wednesday a judge approved an order sending 20-year-old Mason Reilly of Ames to the Iowa Medical and Classification Center in Oakdale for an evaluation.
Reilly has entered a not guilty plea to 2nd degree sexual abuse.
Sixteen-year-olds, James Carsel of Boone and David Price of Ames, are also charged with 2nd degree sexual abuse in connection with the case. They are accused of abducting a 17-year-old girl from her family’s home in rural Hamilton in July.
The three allegedly took her to Peterson Park near Ames and raped her.
