An Orem man will undergo an evaluation to determine his competency before being sentenced on a charge of sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony.

Larry Gene Carter, 39, 339 East Oakwood Drive, pleaded guilty to the charge in May. However, Carter has appeared several times in court, and questions have been raised concerning his competency. Fourth District Judge Cullen Y. Christensen Friday ordered Carter be transferred to the Utah State Hospital for another evaluation.
