What is competency to stand trial, and if when they say you are not competent to stand trial, and does that help your legal case?
1 Answer from Attorneys
If you're not competent to stand trial, then you remain presumed innocent. Further, unless you regain competency, they have to dismiss the charges after a period of time (Unless there is no statute of limitations for charges such as murder).
