Desai Deemed Competent to Stand Trial

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The state’s mental hospital has found the doctor at the center of the hepatitis C outbreak competent to stand trial. Prosecutors say doctors at the Lake’s Crossing facility in Sparks found Dipak Desai meets the criteria for competency.  A judge will make a final determination.  Defense attorneys claim two strokes have left the 61-year-old Desai unable to face criminal charges stemming from the infection of seven patients at his endoscopy clinics.
