SHAWANO, Wis. (WSAU) – The attorney for a Mattoon man charged with trying to entice a 13 year old girl into his truck is asking the state to hurry up on a competency exam.

An attorney for David Anderson says the state is dragging their heels on the results of a competency exam that was ordered in June. The state is asking the judge for another 30 days for a second opinion, but attorney Barbara Caldwell says Anderson has already been in jail for 4 months without a preliminary hearing.

Anderson remains jailed unable to post a $50,000 cash bond. A status conference has been set for August 1st for an update.

According to police, the girl was walking toward the Wittenberg-Birnamwood High School in March when Anderson pulled up in his truck and offered to give her a ride. She said no and kept walking. Anderson parked on a side street and the girl tried to avoid him. He chased her until she ran into Wittenberg Elementary school to report the incident.
