TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Randy Linn, the man accused of setting fire
to the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo, is trying to withdraw his guilty plea.
Now his newly-appointed attorney is requesting a psychological exam for Linn.
Linn's attorney, John Thebes, said based on
his research, he feels it's necessary to find out whether or not Linn maintains
a competent state of mind to stand trial.
"I've looked at the record, looked at the
transcripts from the pre-hearing, and I thought it was in his best interest to
file that motion," Thebes said.
He has been on Linn's case for only two
weeks, but he said this seemed like an obvious move.
"In a lot of ways, it really can't hurt to
have a professional interview him and assist us, and assist the court,
regarding his mental state," he said.
Linn pleaded guilty to setting the Islamic
Center on fire months ago. He has since filed a motion to withdraw the plea,
saying he was depressed when he pleaded guilty.
The board president of the Islamic Center Chereffe
Kadri said Thebes is doing his job by filing this recent motion.
"Our feeling is, let the system work, let the
system do its job," said Kadri. "It's worked for many, many years in many
cases, and I'm sure it's going to work just fine in this case."
Kadri said it's been difficult for the
Islamic community to not be able to step inside their place of worship, but
said the community is looking forward to opening their doors back up again at
the end of the month.
"I know our children will be happy to be
back," Kadri said. "It's home to them."
The Islamic community will be having their
first Friday prayer service at the center since the fire next week.
