Lotto Winner Deemed Incompetent to Stand Trial on Tax Fraud Charges

Defense attorney Bjorn E. Brunvand asserts in court papers that [Alex Toth] has severe psychiatric and medical problems that render him incompetent. According to a letter from physician Gary Levine of Suncoast Total Healthcare, Toth has been involved in "multiple motor vehicle accidents," most recently on June 4.

Brunvand wanted [Elizabeth Jenkins] to allow Alex Toth to remain free and report directly to the federal medical facility, either in North Carolina, Maryland or Kentucky. The other option would be for Toth to be put in jail and taken to the facility by U.S. Marshals when a bed became available.

Jenkins ruled Alex Toth may remain free on bail. The judge said she was leaning toward allowing him to be taken to the facility by [Steven Michael Moser], but she didn't issue a final ruling on that issue. She did order that Moser and his wife sign paperwork agreeing to be responsible for Alex Toth while he is free on bail.
