Sentencing for Sheridan resident Vincent Scott was delayed in 4th Judicial District Court Tuesday. Scott was found guilty in October of six crimes, the most serious of which was 1st Degree Sexual Assault.
Scott's Defense Attorney, Shelley Cundiff filed a motion to have a mental competency evaluation performed on her client. District Court Judge John Fenn accepted the motion, and Scott will be sentenced at a later date following the results of the evaluation.
The original trial date had to be rescheduled as well due to a similar motion filed by the Defense after Scott had harmed himself in the Sheridan County Detention Center.
Scott was found guilty by a jury in October for the following three felonies; 1st Degree Sexual Assault, Felony Aggravated Assault and Battery, and Felony Child Abuse. Scott was also convicted on three misdemeanor counts as well: Domestic Battery, Interference With a 911 Call, and Violation of a Protection Order.
Scott committed the crimes on November 7th, 2009 in Sheridan, when he sexually assaulted and battered his ex-wife in her home. Scott also physically assaulted their 5-year old son during the incident.
