Man charged in State Street sexual assault found not competent to stand trial
MADISON, Wis. — A man charged with sexually assaulting a woman on State Street earlier this summer was found not competent to stand trial and will be required to follow a court-ordered commitment plan before his case can move forward.
Ivan Smart, 22, is charged with one count of first-degree sexual assault aided by others and one count of false imprisonment as a party to a crime.
Smart was bound over for trial in early August after a judge determined there was enough evidence to move forward with the case. A judge later ordered a competency exam for Smart, which ultimately determined he is not yet fit to stand trial.
Prosecutors allege that Smart, with the help of another man who’s not yet been arrested, assaulted the victim after she had been waiting for a rideshare to pick her up after going to bars in the downtown area.
A follow-up court date had not yet been set for Smart as of 2:15 p.m. Friday.
