FOND DU LAC - The suspect in a deadly crash involving a dozen motorcycles is competent to stand trial. A Fond du Lac County judge Thursday found Clinton Lovelace is mentally able to go through proceedings, but a trial date still hasn't been set.
The prosecution, defense and judge all agree: Clinton Lovelace is mentally able to go to trial.
"Mr. Lovelace is competent to proceed," said Judge Gary Sharpe.
The 25-year-old faces 12 charges, including vehicular homicide with a controlled substance.
"Mr. Lovelace certainly understands the nature of the proceedings and is able to assist council. I think the remaining issue is the amnesia issue," said defense attorney Mary Wolfe.
Lovelace claims he has no memory of the crash in the Town of Taycheeda last May. He's accused of crashing his car into a group of 12 motorcycles. 2 of the motorcyclists died as a result. According to authorities Lovelace had drugs in his system at the time. Now his defense attorney has asked the judge for another psychological evaluation.
"Whether or not Mr. Lovelace is suffering from amnesia and whether or not he is likely to regain memory, because it does impact how we proceed," said Mary Wolfe.
The judge will consider ordering another evaluation.
But the 33 motorcyclists who came to court in support of the victims said they're anxious to see this come to trial.
"To have this drawn out by his legal team is just crazy. So it this means another 8 another 10 hearings we will be at each and every one," said Tim Tomann with ABATE Wisconsin, a motorcycle safety rights group.
He told FOX 11 ABATE will be behind the prosecution every step of the way.
"They wanna win this and we wanna see them win it. I mean, we wanna see this person serve out the rest of his time where he cannot impact any of my brothers or sisters on the road going forward," said Tomann.
But the defense wants to win too and now a jury is likely to make that decision.
The judge says he's likely to decide whether Lovelace can have another evaluation regarding amnesia within the next few weeks.
