WEST VALLEY CITY -- Attorneys for a West Valley teen accused of attacking his 6-year-old neighbor want him to undergo a psychological evaluation.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, his lawyers say the boy is mentally disabled and that could have affected his judgment.
The teen is charged with assault, sexual assault and kidnapping in connection with the incident earlier this month. Police say the boy admitted to the crimes.
The boy was initially credited with saving the girl, saying he found her bloody and beaten near his home and brought her to safety.
