Competency questioned for rape defendant
November 14, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Kyle Vogt

A South San Francisco man accused of raping one of his girlfriend’s half-sisters for eight years and behaving inappropriately with another and a neighbor girl may not be fit for trial, according to his defense attorney.

Kyle Clifton Vogt’s attorney raised the question of competency the morning jury trial was to begin. Criminal proceedings were put on hold and two doctors appointed to evaluate Vogt’s ability to aid in his own defense. Those reports are due back Dec. 27.

If incompetent, Vogt will be sent to a state hospital for treatment. If instead the doctors find him competent, Vogt will stand trial on several felonies that could send him to prison for life.

Vogt, 38, has pleaded not guilty to 11 counts including rape, continuous sexual abuse of a child, sending harmful sexual matter to a minor, six counts of lewd acts with a minor under 14 and two counts of lewd acts with a minor over 14 by someone more than 10 years older.

South San Francisco police arrested Vogt in 2012 after reportedly learning he had been carrying on a sexual relationship with his girlfriend’s half-sister starting when the victim was 5. The girl told her mom what was going on when she turned 13, according to prosecutors.

After being taken into custody, Vogt was also accused of molesting one of the girlfriend’s other half-sisters between 2000 and 2012 along with a neighbor girl who was the first victim’s friend. Those acts allegedly included sending inappropriate texts, kissing and groping.

Vogt threatened some of girls with bodily harm to keep them from talking, police said.

He split his time between homes in South San Francisco and Davis where he lived with his 30-year-old girlfriend. Her younger sisters often visited the couple and periodically lived with them in both cities, according to South San Francisco police.

He remains in custody without bail.
