Missionary doctor won't face sex assault trial

“A former Baptist missionary doctor from Wyoming accused of molesting nearly two dozen girls and women in Bangladesh, along with a girl in Allendale, won’t face trial. An Ottawa County judge ruled that Donn Ketcham, now 87, is incompetent to stand trial because he suffers from dementia.” - NBC Grand Rapids


The judge’s decision was based on a defense consultant’s view. Yes, the state didn’t object, but it would be good to have someone independent evaluate Ketchcam. Hopefully the victim here can get some compensation out of whatever estate Ketcham has in a civil suit if she wants.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
