Jared Loughner is Still Incompetent to Stand Trial

Here is a link to an LA Times article about Jared Loughner's current mental state:

Jared Loughner Making "Progress" Toward Standing Trial, Judge Says

The judge still considers him incompetent to proceed, which means he does not possess the ability to consult with his legal team to aid in his defense and/or he does not have a "rational and factual understanding" of the criminal proceedings. However, it appears that the mental health experts who are treating him think he is improving with his court-ordered antipsychotic medication. It is quite possible that, within the next 6-8 months, the judge will rule that he is competent to proceed, and he will then face all 49 felony counts against him.

It is important that the judge make certain that Loughner is competent prior to proceeding with the case. If he is convicted on any of his charges and later appeals, arguing that his Constitutional Rights were violated because he was not competent to stand trial, all of his convictions could be overturned and he would need to be immediately released.
