Prosecutors oppose arguments in Catherine Hoggle case

Montgomery County prosecutors have opposed arguments by defense lawyers in the Catherine Hoggle case.

Hoggle was arrested in September 2014 after the disappearance of her two young children, who have never been found. Her defense attorneys have argued that the case should be dropped because Hoggle was deemed incompetent to stand trial five years ago.

Under Maryland law, felony charges must be dropped against a defendant who has been determined to be incompetent to stand trial for five years.

Prosecutors argue that the defense team is incorrectly calculating the date when Hoggle was first ruled incompetent.
