ONLY ON CVP: A judge in Hackensack has ordered a mental competency evaluation for a Florida man charged with showing pornography to an 11-year-old girl while visiting loved ones in River Vale.

Starr, 78, of Port St. Lucie, was arrested a year ago after the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency contacted Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli’s Special Victims Unit.

A grand jury in Hackensack indicted him last October on two first-degree charges of sexual assault and two second-degree charges of impairing or debauching the morals of a minor.

Defense attorney Adam Lustberg requested the evaluation for Starr, whose case had been listed as “inactive due to lack of competency” for several months.

Presiding Superior Court Judge Liliana DeAvila-Silebi agreed to the evaluation and set an Oct. 6 court hearing to obtain the results.

Meanwhile, Starr remained held in the Bergen County Jail.
