Olivares v. State - Olivares was convicted of first-degree murder with use of a deadly weapon.  His counsel raised questions about his competency prior to trial, but the district court (Judge Bonaventure) refused to hold a hearing.  The Court, sitting en banc, concludes that the district court abused its discretion and denied Olivares his rights to due process by failing to hold the hearing.  The judgment is reversed and the case is remanded to the district court to conduct a competency hearing and a new trial in the event that Olivares is found competent to stand trial.video crazy frog pop corn ita
