Fagan deemed competent to stand trial
DARLINGTON - The case of a Belmont man accused of having sex with a mentally disabled girl will proceed to trial after questions of whether he is mentally competent to stand trial were dropped Tuesday. Zackerie C. J. Fagan, 19, faces a Class C felony count of second-degree sexual assault of a mentally ill victim after an incident on March 11, when he reportedly performed sex acts on an underage teenage girl. According to a criminal complaint, the victim was unaware of or confused by the concept of sex because of a developmental disorder.
