ROCHESTER, Minn. – An accused sex abuser is now competent to stand trial.

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.
