Civil commitment of sexually violent predators. Adds to the list of offenses that qualify as sexually violent offenses: abduction with intent to defile, abduction of a child under 16 years of age for the purpose of prostitution, carnal knowledge of a child between 13 and 15 years of age, carnal knowledge of minors in custody of the court or state, crimes against nature, indecent liberties, indecent liberties with children and indecent liberties with child by person in custodial or supervisory relationship. The requirement that the complaining witness be under 13 years of age for aggravated sexual battery to qualify is removed. A felony conviction for conspiracy to commit or attempt to commit any of the qualified offenses is added as a qualifying offense. Incompetent defendants will be reviewed by the Commitment Review Committee. The bill provides that the Static-99 will be used to identify prisoners who will be forwarded to the Commitment Review Committee (CRC) for assessment. The bill also adds abduction with intent to extort money or for immoral purposes to the felonies for which a presentence report is required. The Commitment Review Committee and Attorney General, for the purpose of sexually violent predator civil commitments, are added as persons having a legitimate interest in child protective services records.
