I wonder this too, in fact I think this might be exactly what is going on :gaah:

Gabriel Gaeta had a hood over his head to conceal his face from cameras. He's back in court Sept. 12th
Gabe Gaeta's mental evaluation won't be done until next week. A competency hearing has been rescheduled for 9/12.
The longer they stall, the longer he gets to stay in the hospital rather than criminal detention center. ??
It's completely clear that before his arrest he was at least competent to participate in an evaluation. There's no way he can't cooperate now, other than he doesn't want to. It makes me so mad that he's allowed to keep playing games!
If I understood the tweets it sounds more like scheduling backup at the facility.
@KevinKIRO7 said it hasn't been completed, which could mean it's still in process. Why so long, I wonder...
Thanks for that information. I ''thought'' that Mental Health professionals would be pretty skilled in evaluations even if the patient is not particularly cooperative.
if that was the case the lawyer only needed to file papers for a continuance.....MOO
I agree with many of your posts...
I can't imagine the judge is any too pleased having all these people clear their schedules for today... And the court had to be reserved... All to be told "the eval. Has not been done yet.
Why the delay?....It's not like GG has a full schedule of events in "Hyatt Prison"....
Again.... We see the perp has more rights than the victims....
But the courts might not accept that evaluation as complete, or the defense can say it's not reliable.
Anyone know if that's true? (I'm just guessing here!)

Suspect in the killing of Jenise Wright will be evaluated for competency to stand trial next week, prosecutors say.
Legal experts and experienced court watchers....is this scenario a normal occurrence? Do evaluations typically get delayed with the perp showing up at the hearing? Or is this unusual?
Respectfully, I think you need to reread my post. "Sometimes" does not imply a carte blanche or blanket statement. I was looking at two parenting extremes and noting that a blend of both is good, MOO. I did not apply "helicopter parenting" to a specific age bracket.
Your statement makes me wonder who does the eval , within the hospital. Is there a specific dr who does all evals for this type of thing? Or a team or doctors? Could there literally be a disagreement where one side is saying 'oh he's so mentally ill, we cant do eval yet ' and another side is saying' he's fine, just eval him'? OR could the terrified little GG be playing this up big time knowing every day his eval is stalled , he is NOT in jail where other inmates know what he did ??
Hopefully some of these reporters will get to the bottom of this. It's ridiculous. I don't recall hearing this. Stalling for trial dates and them being changed over and over is common. Stalling for just getting charged.........something stinks !
And btw :seeya: Team Jenise !
Sorry, I read the sentence as two independent clauses. Sometimes the world lacks common sense. There is no balance anymore. Read that way, the second clause reads (to me!) as if you were saying no balance exists anymore. Thanks for clearing it up--it seems we agree.
I mean, it's not like Gabe is busy with school and sports and friends!! How can he not have 'time' for the mental eval?
For the love of God, he's in jail!!! :facepalm:
I do. I understand everyone wants a big old rush to justice but I'd rather they took time and made sure he didn't have a single damn thing he could try an appeal on. I don't care if he gets a coat over his head, it's his legal right at this point. If he's playing games over the mental eval, the longer they take to assess him, the more likely they are to catch him out. If he's not, then let them take the time to get him on the right regime so he's fit to stand trial. The right result is all that matters.
Not much info yet - maybe the news stations will have more at 4 pm. His competency evaluation is scheduled for Sept. 3 and his next hearing will be on Sept. 12.
