EC group home resident not competent to stand trial after punching employee, sexually assaulting resident

Eau Claire (WQOW) – A man accused of sexually assaulting an Eau Claire group home resident and punching an employee will not go to trial any time soon.

An Eau Claire County judge last week found Dustin Pederson is not competent to stand trial, and suspended the case against him.

Pederson was a resident of the Liberty View Group Home. Police said he sexually assaulted a woman who lived there, then repeatedly punched a staff member in the face as she attempted to report the sexual assault to police.
