A Laurel County couple accused of sexual abuse of a minor appeared in Judge Tom Jensen’s courtroom Friday in London and were scheduled to have a competency hearing in July.

The couple was handed a 15-count indictment on these charges in December.

Both Dustin Brummett and Charlene Brummett have a competency hearing scheduled for July 12 at 9:30 a.m.
