CA - Woman Who Posed As Twin Boys Ordered To Undergo Psych Exam
An 18-year-old woman accused of pretending to be twin 12-year-old boys and simultaneously dating two adolescent girls will undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine her competency to stand trial in San Mateo County Superior Court.
Lakesia Michelle Mason pleaded not guilty in March to 13 counts of lewd acts upon a child under the age of 14 for her alleged relationships with a 13-year-old girl and an 11-year-old girl.
Friday in court, Mason's defense attorney raised questions about Mason's competency to stand trial for the alleged crimes.
According to the state penal code, a person cannot be tried or punished for a crime while that person is mentally incompetent.
Superior Court Judge Craig Parsons today assigned Mason to undergo a psychiatric evaluation by two court-appointed doctors. Criminal proceedings against Mason are suspended pending the outcome of those reports.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
