Woman accused of attacking cop found incompetent

Home Crime News Woman accused of attacking cop found incompetent
A Colusa woman, with a long history of violence, has been found incompetent at this time to aid in her own defense against felony charges that could send her to state prison for more than a decade.

Court proceedings have been suspended for Patricia Wesley, 25, who is accused of trying to attack a Williams Police officer with a large kitchen knife on April 8, when the officer responded to her mother’s home in the apartment complex on Marguerite St., in Williams.

Two court appointed psychiatrists agreed that Wesley is not ready to stand trial, said Colusa County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey A. Thompson.

Despite initial outbursts in court and a violent incident in Colusa County Jail a few weeks ago that could effect her sentencing, if she is found guilty, Wesley was subdued and respectful when she appeared in court on May 20.

Wesley has been charged with assaulting a peace officer, resisting an executive officer, three charges of being under the influence of a controlled substance, and DUI. She is facing up to five years in state prison on each of the serious felonies, one year in jail on the DUI, and fines up to $20,000, officials said.

Wesley has pleaded not guilty to the charges. She is scheduled to appear in court on June 10 for a update on her condition.
