LIMA — A Lima woman accused of having sex with a minor has been deemed competent to stand trial.
Zonobia McLaurin, 24, of Lima, appeared in court Wednesday with her attorney for a competency hearing after having been indicted in March on a single count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, a felony of the fourth degree
The indictment alleges that on or about April 30, 2019, McLaurin engaged in sexual activity with a minor between the ages of 13 and 16.
In July McLaurin’s attorney, Bill Kluge, requested a competency evaluation for his client. After having been initially deemed incompetent to stand trial and ordered to the Northwest Ohio Psychiatric Hospital in Toledo for treatment, a report from the hospital dated Nov. 11 noted that McLaurin “has been restored to and is currently competent to stand trial.”
A pre-trial hearing was scheduled for Dec. 1. No trial date has been set.
