Humphreys (Mark) v. State

            Las Vegas - 1:30 p.m. - Justices Parraguirre, Douglas, and Pickering

This is a case about Mark Humphreys' competency to stand trial.  Humphreys was convicted by a Clark County jury of making terrorist threats and aggravated stalking because of threats and harassing phone calls he made to various employees of the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.  Humphreys made over 2000 phone calls to various Hard Rock employees between December 2006 and April 2007.  Eventually, Humphreys threatened to kill one employee and to "blow up" the Hard Rock Hotel.  Before his arraignment and also before he was sentenced, Humphreys' competency was evaluated.  Following both evaluations, the district court judge determined that Humphreys was competent.  Humphreys is now appealing his judgment of conviction.  ISSUE: Did the district court correctly determine Humphreys' competency?
