A 27-year-old Provo man who last month pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony, has been ordered to undergo a 90-day diagnostic examination at the Utah State Prison.
Glenn K. Mehew, whose sentencing was postponed Friday until June 16 pending results of his mental examination, was arrested Jan. 20 in connection with an armed robbery earlier that day in which approximately $5,000 was taken from First Interstate Bank in northeast Provo."We think there ought to be a closer look at his thought processes, motivation and behavior," said public defender Stott Harston.
Deputy Utah County Attorney Jim Taylor agreed, after which Fourth District Judge Ray M. Harding granted Harston's request.
Harding ordered Mehew, who is free on $50,000 bond, to report to the county sheriff's department Monday for transportation to the prison.
