Judge rules son of Alton Sterling incompetent to stand trial in rape case
BATON ROUGE - According to a judge the son of Alton Sterling, the man killed by a former officer with the Baton Rouge Police Department, is not competent to stand trial on a charge of first-degree rape.
One of Cameron's attorneys said doctors believe his competency can be restored. Johnson ordered the suspect to be transferred from the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison to a state mental facility in Jackson for treatment. His progress will be reviewed in August.
Cameron is accused of sexually assaulting a juvenile in December. When questioned about the incident, he initially denied touching the child.
