Hospitalization of inmates in local correctional facilities.  Repeals provisions dealing with determining (i) a defendant's competency to be sentenced after he has been convicted of a crime and (ii) whether an inmate who is in the custody of a local correctional facility needs to be involuntarily hospitalized for treatment of mental illness, and substantially incorporates these provisions into statutes dealing generally with determinations of a defendant's competency and the hospitalization of inmates in the custody of local correctional facilities. The bill sets forth the procedures that a court or a person having custody of an inmate must follow to determine whether treatment of mental illness is necessary. Read the Bill »
