Majed Isaac Ijong, 25 of Stewartville, is charged with three counts of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct, all involving a child under the age of 13. Ijong was charged in October 2017 and arrested in California a month and a half later.
He was ruled incompetent to stand trial in March 2018 after a court-ordered evaluation but he was found competent at a hearing Tuesday morning.
A plea hearing in Ijong’s case is now set for October 5.
