BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Thomas Moore, the man in a wheelchair accused of molesting a nursing home resident, was ruled not competent to stand trial in May.
His case a adjourned until Sept. 13 by Judge Kevin Keane in Buffalo City Court.
The New York State Department of Mental Health found Moore to be not mentally competent; that means two doctors evaluated him and deemed him so.
Officials say the abuse happened at Waterfront Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare in Buffalo in January.
Moore, who was already a Level 3 sex offender, was transferred there from prison. The double amputee had been in jail for sex crimes against elderly women.
The Office of Mental Health will designate a facility where Moore will undergo more extensive evaluations.
