Placeholder Image
DARLINGTON - A Darlington man charged with sexually assaulting an underage girl was deemed incompetent to stand trial Wednesday. David Blench, 23, appeared in Lafayette County Circuit Court Wednesday on charges of second-degree sexual assault of a child and exposing his genitals to a child. The charges stem from an incident in April, when he allegedly fondled an underage girl's breasts and attempted to persuade her to perform sex acts.
