LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The attorney for charity founder Stan Curtis is asking a federal judge to change his ruling that says Curtis is mentally competent to move forward in his money laundering and fraud case.
Curtis, who founded USA Harvest, is accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars for his personal use.
Curtis’ health has been in decline since he was charged last September.
His attorney says he now has dementia.
Scott Cox says Curtis does not understand a guilty plea or the terms of his deal which would put him in prison for 27 months.
Cox says Curtis is on a slow, downward path and likely will never improve.
There is no word on when the judge will consider the request.
