A federal judge has concluded that the founder of USA Harvest is competent to stand trial on charges that he used money from the organization for personal expenses.
Curtis is charged with taking $183,354 from the charity and charging another $370,000 in personal travel expenses. He has been in poor health since being charged in September 2012.
The case has been pending for nearly 15 months as Curtis has battled health issues and his attorney has sought to have him declared incompetent because of his illnesses.
No trial date has been set.
