Facing numerous charges of child sexual assault in two cases, an Elroy man was found incompetent to stand trial for the second time March 8.

Joshua Olson, 31, faced a total of eight felony child sexual assault charges. He was first found incompetent of the cases in April 2015 before the state was granted a motion for a reevaluation in August 2015.

Juneau County Circuit Court Judge John Roemer placed conditions on Olson, including that he not have contact with children other than his own and he is not to have contact with the victims. In addition, Olson must appear for hearings and must inform the court within 48 hours should he move. In a year, Olson’s competency status may be reevaluated. The two cases have been suspended.

A status conference is scheduled for Jan. 10, 2017.
