	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1470, Committee on Budget. Mental health: State Department of
State Hospitals.
   Existing law provides for state hospitals for the care, treatment,
and education of mentally disordered persons. These hospitals are
under the jurisdiction of the State Department of Mental Health,
which is authorized by existing law to adopt regulations regarding
the conduct and management of these facilities. Existing law
establishes the Mental Health Subaccount of the Sales Tax Account in
the continuously appropriated Local Revenue Fund for allocation into
the mental health account of each local health and welfare trust
fund, as specified. Existing law establishes the Mental Health
Facilities Fund, which consists of the continuously appropriated
State Hospital Account and the continuously appropriated Institutions
for Mental Disease Account, and requires disbursement monthly of
funds deposited to those accounts to the State Department of Mental
Health, as specified.
   This bill would, instead, establish the State Department of State
Hospitals, would require state hospitals to be under the jurisdiction
of that department, and would require the State Department of Health
Care Services to perform other specified duties instead of the State
Department of Mental Health. This bill would provide that all
regulations relating to state hospitals adopted by the State
Department of Mental Health pursuant to authority transferred to the
State Department of State Hospitals and in effect immediately
preceding the operative date of this bill, shall remain in effect and
be fully enforceable unless and until readopted, amended, or
repealed by the Director of State Hospitals. This bill would specify
the calculation for certain reimbursements for use of state hospital
beds by counties that have not contracted with the State Department
of State Hospitals, which are withheld from allocations from the
Mental Health Subaccount of the Sales Tax Account in the Local
Revenue Fund. This bill would require that funds deposited in the
State Hospital Account be disbursed monthly to the State Department
of State Hospitals and that funds deposited in the Institutions for
Mental Disease Account be disbursed monthly to the State Department
of Health Care Services. This bill would also make conforming changes
and delete various obsolete provisions.
   Existing law prohibits a person from being tried or adjudged to
punishment while the person is mentally incompetent. Existing law
allows a county jail to be designated to provide medically approved
medication to defendants found to be mentally incompetent and unable
to provide informed consent due to a mental disorder upon the
concurrence of the county board of supervisors, the county mental
health director, and the county sheriff. Pursuant to these
provisions, existing law also provides that a treatment facility for
mentally incompetent defendants may include a county jail only for
the sole purpose of administering antipsychotic medication pursuant
to a court order, and provided the maximum period of time a defendant
may be treated in a county jail treatment facility shall not exceed
6 months. Existing law provides that these provisions shall remain in
effect until January 1, 2015, and as of that date are repealed.
   This bill would recast these provisions and make them operative
until January 1, 2016. It would provide that a treatment facility
includes a county jail without the limitation pertaining to
administering antipsychotic medication pursuant to a court order. The
bill would also delete an obsolete requirement that the State
Department of Mental Health report to the Legislature regarding
defendants that are incompetent to stand trial.
   Existing law provides that a trial or judgment shall be suspended
until a person becomes mentally competent, and requires that a
mentally incompetent defendant either be delivered to a state
hospital, a treatment facility, or be placed on outpatient status.
Prior to placement, existing law requires the court to order the
community program director or designee to evaluate the defendant and
submit a written recommendation to the court as to whether the
defendant should be required to undergo outpatient treatment, or
committed to a state hospital or to any other treatment facility.
   This bill would require the community program director or designee
to evaluate the appropriate placement for the mentally disordered
defendant to a state hospital or a local county jail treatment
facility based on guidelines provided by the State Department of
State Hospitals. The bill would require the State Department of State
Hospitals to provide treatment at the county jail treatment facility
and to reimburse the county jail treatment facility for the
reasonable costs of the bed during the treatment. This bill would
provide that the 6-month limitation on treatment in a county jail
treatment facility shall not apply to these individuals. The bill
would make an additional conforming change.
   Existing law authorizes, until September 2012, the State
Department of Mental Health to house up to 1,530 patients at Patton
State Hospital. Existing law provides that, until a permanent housing
and treatment facility is available, Atascadero State Hospital shall
be used whenever a sexually violent predator, as defined, is
committed to a secure facility for mental health treatment, as
prescribed. Existing law permits the State Department of Mental
Health to place health facility beds at Coalinga State Hospital in
suspense for a period of up to 6 years in providing programming to
specified individuals using an outpatient/day treatment model.
   This bill would instead provide that Coalinga State Hospital shall
be used when a sexually violent predator is committed to a secure
facility for mental health treatment, and would instead provide that
the State Department of State Hospitals may suspend health facility
beds at Coalinga State Hospital in order to meet the mental health
and medical needs of the patient population. This bill would extend
the date the State Department of State Hospitals may house up to
1,530 patients at Patton State Hospital to September 2020.
   This bill would appropriate $1,000 to the State Department of
Health Care Services for administration.
   This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as a
bill providing for appropriations related to the Budget Bill.
   Appropriation: yes.

   (b) On and after the effective date of this section, no person

being licensed by the board as a pharmacy technician.
   (f) (1) A pharmacy with only one pharmacist shall have no more
than one pharmacy technician performing the tasks specified in
subdivision (a). The ratio of pharmacy technicians performing the
tasks specified in subdivision (a) to any additional pharmacist shall
not exceed 2:1, except that this ratio shall not apply to personnel

ratio is applicable to all practice settings, except for an inpatient

agency, as specified in paragraph (2), an inmate of a correctional
facility of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, and for
a person receiving treatment in a facility operated by the State

Services, or the Department of Veterans Affairs.
   (2) The board may adopt regulations establishing the ratio of
pharmacy technicians performing the tasks specified in subdivision
(a) to pharmacists applicable to the filling of prescriptions of an
inpatient of a licensed health facility and for a patient of a
licensed home health agency. Any ratio established by the board
pursuant to this subdivision shall allow, at a minimum, at least one
pharmacy technician for a single pharmacist in a pharmacy and two
pharmacy technicians for each additional pharmacist, except that this
ratio shall not apply to personnel performing clerical functions
pursuant to Section 4116 or 4117.
   (3) A pharmacist scheduled to supervise a second pharmacy
technician may refuse to supervise a second pharmacy technician if
the pharmacist determines, in the exercise of his or her professional

supervise a second pharmacy technician shall notify the pharmacist in
charge in writing of his or her determination, specifying the
circumstances of concern with respect to the pharmacy or the pharmacy
technician that have led to the determination, within a reasonable

pharmacy technician may, at the discretion of the pharmacist, remain
in the pharmacy but may only perform nondiscretionary tasks. The
pharmacist shall be responsible for a pharmacy technician and shall
review any task performed by a pharmacy technician during the
pharmacist's temporary absence. Nothing in this subdivision shall be

of the mentally disabled and the developmentally disabled. Clinical
inpatient experience shall be an integral part of that prescribed or
equivalent course of study and training. The experience shall be
obtained in a state hospital, except where the board finds that the

State Department of Developmental Services or the State Department of
State Hospitals, of state hospital clinical training placements.

operating room, pediatric unit, step-down/intermediate care unit,
specialty care unit, telemetry unit, general medical care unit,
subacute care unit, and transitional inpatient care unit. The
regulation addressing the emergency department shall distinguish
between regularly scheduled core staff licensed nurses and additional
licensed nurses required to care for critical care patients in the
emergency department.
   (b) These ratios shall constitute the minimum number of registered
and licensed nurses that shall be allocated. Additional staff shall
be assigned in accordance with a documented patient classification
system for determining nursing care requirements, including the
severity of the illness, the need for specialized equipment and
technology, the complexity of clinical judgment needed to design,
implement, and evaluate the patient care plan and the ability for
self-care, and the licensure of the personnel required for care.
   (c) "Critical care unit" as used in this section means a unit that
is established to safeguard and protect patients whose severity of
medical conditions requires continuous monitoring, and complex
intervention by licensed nurses.
   (d) All health facilities licensed under subdivision (a), (b), or
(f) of Section 1250 shall adopt written policies and procedures for
training and orientation of nursing staff.
   (e) No registered nurse shall be assigned to a nursing unit or
clinical area unless that nurse has first received orientation in
that clinical area sufficient to provide competent care to patients
in that area, and has demonstrated current competence in providing
care in that area.
   (f) The written policies and procedures for orientation of nursing
staff shall require that all temporary personnel shall receive
orientation and be subject to competency validation consistent with
Sections 70016.1 and 70214 of Title 22 of the California Code of
Regulations.
   (g) Requests for waivers to this section that do not jeopardize
the health, safety, and well-being of patients affected and that are
needed for increased operational efficiency may be granted by the
department to rural general acute care hospitals meeting the criteria
set forth in Section 70059.1 of Title 22 of the California Code of
Regulations.
   (h) In case of conflict between this section and any provision or
regulation defining the scope of nursing practice, the scope of
practice provisions shall control.
   (i) The regulations adopted by the department shall augment and
not replace existing nurse-to-patient ratios that exist in regulation
or law for the intensive care units, the neonatal intensive care
units, or the operating room.
   (j) The regulations adopted by the department shall not replace
existing licensed staff-to-patient ratios for hospitals operated by
the State Department of State Hospitals.
   (k) The regulations adopted by the department for health
facilities licensed under subdivision (b) of Section 1250 that are
not operated by the State Department of State Hospitals shall take
into account the special needs of the patients served in the
psychiatric units.
   (  l  ) The department may take into consideration the
unique nature of the University of California teaching hospitals as
educational institutions when establishing licensed nurse-to-patient
ratios. The department shall coordinate with the Board of Registered
Nursing to ensure that staffing ratios are consistent with the Board
of Registered Nursing approved nursing education requirements. This
includes nursing clinical experience incidental to a work-study
program rendered in a University of California clinical facility
approved by the Board of Registered Nursing provided there will be
sufficient direct care registered nurse preceptors available to
ensure safe patient care.
  SEC. 12.  Section 1312 of the Health and Safety Code is amended to
read:
   1312.  Before a person who is required to register as a sex
offender under Section 290 of the Penal Code is released into a
long-term health care facility, as defined in Section 1418, the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the State Department of
State Hospitals, or any other official in charge of the place of
confinement, shall notify the facility, in writing, that the sex
offender is being released to reside at the facility.
  SEC. 13.  Section 1316.5 of the Health and Safety Code is amended
to read:
   1316.5.  (a) (1) Each health facility owned and operated by the
state offering care or services within the scope of practice of a
psychologist shall establish rules and medical staff bylaws that
include provisions for medical staff membership and clinical
                                      privileges for clinical
psychologists within the scope of their licensure as psychologists,
subject to the rules and medical staff bylaws governing medical staff
membership or privileges as the facility shall establish. The rules
and regulations shall not discriminate on the basis of whether the
staff member holds an M.D., D.O., D.D.S., D.P.M., or doctoral degree
in psychology within the scope of the member's respective licensure.
Each of these health facilities owned and operated by the state shall
establish a staff comprised of physicians and surgeons, dentists,
podiatrists, psychologists, or any combination thereof, that shall
regulate the admission, conduct, suspension, or termination of the
staff appointment of psychologists employed by the health facility.
   (2) With regard to the practice of psychology in health facilities
owned and operated by the state offering care or services within the
scope of practice of a psychologist, medical staff status shall
include and provide for the right to pursue and practice full
clinical privileges for holders of a doctoral degree of psychology
within the scope of their respective licensure. These rights and
privileges shall be limited or restricted only upon the basis of an
individual practitioner's demonstrated competence. Competence shall
be determined by health facility rules and medical staff bylaws that
are necessary and are applied in good faith, equally and in a
nondiscriminatory manner, to all practitioners, regardless of whether
they hold an M.D., D.O., D.D.S., D.P.M., or doctoral degree in
psychology.
   (3) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to require a
health facility owned and operated by the state to offer a specific
health service or services not otherwise offered. If a health service
is offered in such a health facility that includes provisions for
medical staff membership and clinical privileges for clinical
psychologists, the facility shall not discriminate between persons
holding an M.D., D.O., D.D.S., D.P.M., or doctoral degree in
psychology who are authorized by law to perform the service within
the scope of the person's respective licensure.
   (4) The rules and medical staff bylaws of a health facility owned
and operated by the state that include provisions for medical staff
membership and clinical privileges for medical staff and duly
licensed clinical psychologists shall not discriminate on the basis
of whether the staff member holds an M.D., D.O., D.D.S., D.P.M., or
doctoral degree in psychology within the scope of the member's
respective licensure. The health facility staff of these health
facilities who process, review, evaluate, and determine
qualifications for staff privileges for medical staff shall include,
if possible, staff members who are clinical psychologists.
   (b) (1) The rules of a health facility not owned or operated by
this state may enable the appointment of clinical psychologists on
the terms and conditions that the facility shall establish. In these
health facilities, clinical psychologists may hold membership and
serve on committees of the medical staff and carry professional
responsibilities consistent with the scope of their licensure and
their competence, subject to the rules of the health facility.
   (2) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to require a
health facility not owned or operated by this state to offer a
specific health service or services not otherwise offered. If a
health service is offered by a health facility with both licensed
physicians and surgeons and clinical psychologists on the medical
staff, which both licensed physicians and surgeons and clinical
psychologists are authorized by law to perform, the service may be
performed by either, without discrimination.
   (3) This subdivision shall not prohibit a health facility that is
a clinical teaching facility owned or operated by a university
operating a school of medicine from requiring that a clinical
psychologist have a faculty teaching appointment as a condition for
eligibility for staff privileges at that facility.
   (4) In any health facility that is not owned or operated by this
state that provides staff privileges to clinical psychologists, the
health facility staff who process, review, evaluate, and determine
qualifications for staff privileges for medical staff shall include,
if possible, staff members who are clinical psychologists.
   (c) No classification of health facilities by the department, nor
any other classification of health facilities based on quality of
service or otherwise, by any person, body, or governmental agency of
this state or any subdivision thereof shall be affected by a health
facility's provision for use of its facilities by duly licensed
clinical psychologists, nor shall any classification of these
facilities be affected by the subjection of the psychologists to the
rules and regulations of the organized professional staff. No
classification of health facilities by any governmental agency of
this state or any subdivision thereof pursuant to any law, whether
enacted prior or subsequent to the effective date of this section,
for the purposes of ascertaining eligibility for compensation,
reimbursement, or other benefit for treatment of patients shall be
affected by a health facility's provision for use of its facilities
by duly licensed clinical psychologists, nor shall any classification
of these facilities be affected by the subjection of the
psychologists to the rules and regulations of the organized
professional staff which govern the psychologists' use of the
facilities.
   (d) "Clinical psychologist," as used in this section, means a
psychologist licensed by this state who meets both of the following
requirements:

state or by the United States to provide health care, or, is listed
in the latest edition of the National Register of Health Service
Providers in Psychology, as adopted by the Council for the National
Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology.
   (e) Nothing in this section is intended to expand the scope of
licensure of clinical psychologists. Notwithstanding the Ralph C.
Dills Act (Chapter 10.3 (commencing with Section 3512) of Division 4
of Title 1 of the Government Code), the Public Employment Relations
Board is precluded from creating any additional bargaining units for
the purpose of exclusive representation of state psychologist
employees that might result because of medical staff membership
and/or privilege changes for psychologists due to the enactment of
provisions by Assembly Bill No. 3141 of the 1995-96 Regular Session.

   290.04.  (a) (1) The sex offender risk assessment tools authorized
by this section for use with selected populations shall be known,
with respect to each population, as the State-Authorized Risk
Assessment Tool for Sex Offenders (SARATSO). If a SARATSO has not

deems appropriate.
   (b) (1) Commencing January 1, 2007, the SARATSO for adult males
required to register as sex offenders shall be the STATIC-99 risk
assessment scale, which shall be the SARATSO static tool for adult
males.
   (2) The SARATSO Review Committee shall determine whether the
STATIC-99 should be supplemented with an empirically derived
instrument that measures dynamic risk factors or whether the
STATIC-99 should be replaced as the SARATSO with a different risk
assessment tool. The SARATSO Review Committee shall select an
empirically derived instrument that measures dynamic risk factors and
an empirically derived instrument that measures risk of future
violence. The selected instruments shall be the SARATSO dynamic tool
for adult males and the SARATSO future violence tool for adult males.
If the committee unanimously agrees on changes to be made to a
designated SARATSO, it shall advise the Governor and the Legislature

appropriate risk assessment tool to be used to assess this
population, it shall advise the Governor and the Legislature of the
selected tool, and the State Department of Mental Health shall post
the decision on its Internet Web site. Sixty days after the decision
is posted, the selected tool shall become the SARATSO for male
juveniles.
   (e) On or before July 1, 2007, the SARATSO Review Committee shall
research risk assessment tools for female juveniles required to
register as sex offenders. If the committee unanimously agrees on an
appropriate risk assessment tool to be used to assess this
population, it shall advise the Governor and the Legislature of the
selected tool, and the State Department of Mental Health shall post
the decision on its Internet Web site. Sixty days after the decision
is posted, the selected tool shall become the SARATSO for female
juveniles.
   (f) The committee shall periodically evaluate the SARATSO static,
dynamic, and risk of future violence tools for each specified
population. If the committee unanimously agrees on a change to the
SARATSO for any population, it shall advise the Governor and the
Legislature of the selected tool, and the Department of Corrections
and Rehabilitation shall post the decision on its Internet Web site.
Sixty days after the decision is posted, the selected tool shall
become the SARATSO for that population.
   (g) The committee shall perform other functions consistent with
the provisions of this act or as may be otherwise required by law,
including, but not limited to, defining tiers of risk based on the
SARATSO. The committee shall be immune from liability for good faith
conduct under this act.
  SEC. 16.  Section 290.05 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   290.05.  (a) The SARATSO Training Committee shall be comprised of
a representative of the State Department of State Hospitals, a
representative of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, a
representative of the Attorney General's Office, and a
representative of the Chief Probation Officers of California.

administer the static SARATSO pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2) of
subdivision (a) of Section 290.06.
   (2) The State Department of State Hospitals shall be responsible
for overseeing the training of persons who will administer the static
SARATSO pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (a) of Section
290.06.

developing standards for the training of persons who will administer
the static SARATSO pursuant to paragraph (5) or (6) of subdivision
(a) of Section 290.06.
   (4) The Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training shall
be responsible for developing standards for the training of persons
who will administer the static SARATSO pursuant to subdivision (b) of
Section 290.06.
   (d) The training shall be conducted by experts in the field of
risk assessment and the use of actuarial instruments in predicting
sex offender risk. Subject to requirements established by the
committee, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the
State Department of State Hospitals, probation departments, and
authorized local law enforcement agencies shall designate key persons
within their organizations to attend training and, as authorized by
the department, to train others within their organizations designated
to perform risk assessments as required or authorized by law. Any
person who administers the static SARATSO shall receive training no
less frequently than every two years.
   (e) If the agency responsible for scoring the static SARATSO
believes an individual score does not represent the person's true
risk level, based on factors in the offender's record, the agency may
submit the case to the experts retained by the SARATSO Review
Committee to monitor the scoring of the SARATSO. Those experts shall
be guided by empirical research in determining whether to raise or
lower the risk level. Agencies that score the static SARATSO shall
develop a protocol for submission of risk level override requests to
the experts retained in accordance with this subdivision.
   (f) The static SARATSO may be performed for purposes authorized by
statute only by persons trained pursuant to this section. Persons
who administer the dynamic SARATSO and the future violence SARATSO
shall be trained to administer the dynamic and future violence
SARATSO tools as required in Section 290.09. Probation officers or
parole agents may be trained by SARATSO experts on the dynamic
SARATSO tool and perform assessments on that tool only if authorized
by the SARATSO Training Committee to do so after successful
completion of training.
  SEC. 17.  Section 290.06 of the Penal Code is amended to read:

   (a) Where one of the new offenses is one of the violent felonies
specified in subdivision (c), in addition to and consecutive to any
other prison terms therefor, the court shall impose a three-year term
for each prior separate prison term served by the defendant where
the prior offense was one of the violent felonies specified in

this subdivision for any prison term served prior to a period of 10
years in which the defendant remained free of both prison custody and
the commission of an offense which results in a felony conviction.
   (b) Except where subdivision (a) applies, where the new offense is
any felony for which a prison sentence or a sentence of imprisonment
in a county jail under subdivision (h) of Section 1170 is imposed or

(h) of Section 1170 or when sentence is not suspended for any felony;
provided that no additional term shall be imposed under this
subdivision for any prison term or county jail term imposed under
subdivision (h) of Section 1170 or when sentence is not suspended
prior to a period of five years in which the defendant remained free
of both the commission of an offense which results in a felony
conviction, and prison custody or the imposition of a term of jail
custody imposed under subdivision (h) of Section 1170 or any felony
sentence that is not suspended. A term imposed under the provisions
of paragraph (5) of subdivision (h) of Section 1170, wherein a
portion of the term is suspended by the court to allow postrelease
supervision, shall qualify as a prior county jail term for the
purposes of the one-year enhancement.

   (23) A violation of subdivision (b) or (c) of Section 11418. The
Legislature finds and declares that these specified crimes merit
special consideration when imposing a sentence to display society's
condemnation for these extraordinary crimes of violence against the

state prison or federal penal institution as punishment for
commission of an offense, including confinement in a hospital or
other institution or facility credited as service of prison time in
the jurisdiction of the confinement.
   (i) For the purposes of this section, a commitment to the State
Department of State Hospitals as a mentally disordered sex offender

in duration, shall be deemed a prior prison term.
   (j) For the purposes of this section, when a person subject to the
custody, control, and discipline of the Secretary of the Department
of Corrections and Rehabilitation is incarcerated at a facility
operated by the Division of Juvenile Justice, that incarceration
shall be deemed to be a term served in state prison.

entered, and in that trial the defendant shall be conclusively
presumed to have been sane at the time the offense is alleged to have
been committed. If the jury shall find the defendant guilty, or if
the defendant pleads only not guilty by reason of insanity, then the

offense was committed shall be promptly tried, either before the same
jury or before a new jury in the discretion of the court. In that
trial, the jury shall return a verdict either that the defendant was
sane at the time the offense was committed or was insane at the time
the offense was committed. If the verdict or finding is that the
defendant was sane at the time the offense was committed, the court
shall sentence the defendant as provided by law. If the verdict or
finding be that the defendant was insane at the time the offense was
committed, the court, unless it shall appear to the court that the
sanity of the defendant has been recovered fully, shall direct that
the defendant be confined in a state hospital for the care and
treatment of the mentally disordered or any other appropriate public
or private treatment facility approved by the community program
director, or the court may order the defendant placed on outpatient
status pursuant to Title 15 (commencing with Section 1600) of Part 2.

   (b) Prior to making the order directing that the defendant be
confined in a state hospital or other treatment facility or placed on
outpatient status, the court shall order the community program
director or a designee to evaluate the defendant and to submit to the
court within 15 judicial days of the order a written recommendation
as to whether the defendant should be placed on outpatient status or
confined in a state hospital or other treatment facility. No person
shall be admitted to a state hospital or other treatment facility or
placed on outpatient status under this section without having been
evaluated by the community program director or a designee. If,
however, it appears to the court that the sanity of the defendant has
been recovered fully, the defendant shall be remanded to the custody
of the sheriff until the issue of sanity shall have been finally
determined in the manner prescribed by law. A defendant committed to
a state hospital or other treatment facility or placed on outpatient
status pursuant to Title 15 (commencing with Section 1600) of Part 2
shall not be released from confinement, parole, or outpatient status
unless and until the court which committed the person shall, after
notice and hearing, find and determine that the person's sanity has
been restored. Nothing in this section shall prevent the transfer of
the patient from one state hospital to any other state hospital by
proper authority. Nothing in this section shall prevent the transfer
of the patient to a hospital in another state in the manner provided
in Section 4119 of the Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (c) If the defendant is committed or transferred to a state
hospital pursuant to this section, the court may, upon receiving the
written recommendation of the medical director of the state hospital
and the community program director that the defendant be transferred
to a public or private treatment facility approved by the community
program director, order the defendant transferred to that facility.
If the defendant is committed or transferred to a public or private
treatment facility approved by the community program director, the
court may, upon receiving the written recommendation of the community
program director, order the defendant transferred to a state
hospital or to another public or private treatment facility approved
by the community program director. Where either the defendant or the
prosecuting attorney chooses to contest either kind of order of
transfer, a petition may be filed in the court requesting a hearing
which shall be held if the court determines that sufficient grounds
exist. At that hearing, the prosecuting attorney or the defendant may
present evidence bearing on the order of transfer. The court shall
use the same procedures and standards of proof as used in conducting
probation revocation hearings pursuant to Section 1203.2.
   (d) Prior to making an order for transfer under this section, the
court shall notify the defendant, the attorney of record for the
defendant, the prosecuting attorney, and the community program
director or a designee.
   (e) When the court, after considering the placement recommendation
of the community program director required in subdivision (b),
orders that the defendant be confined in a state hospital or other
public or private treatment facility, the court shall provide copies
of the following documents which shall be taken with the defendant to
the state hospital or other treatment facility where the defendant
is to be confined:
   (1) The commitment order, including a specification of the
charges.
   (2) A computation or statement setting forth the maximum term of
commitment in accordance with Section 1026.5.
   (3) A computation or statement setting forth the amount of credit
for time served, if any, to be deducted from the maximum term of
commitment.
   (4) State summary criminal history information.
   (5) Any arrest reports prepared by the police department or other
law enforcement agency.
   (6) Any court-ordered psychiatric examination or evaluation
reports.
   (7) The community program director's placement recommendation
report.
   (f) If the defendant is confined in a state hospital or other
treatment facility as an inpatient, the medical director of the
facility shall, at six-month intervals, submit a report in writing to
the court and the community program director of the county of
commitment, or a designee, setting forth the status and progress of
the defendant. The court shall transmit copies of these reports to
the prosecutor and defense counsel.
   (g) When directing that the defendant be confined in a state
hospital pursuant to subdivision (a), the court shall select the
state hospital in accordance with the policies established by the
State Department of State Hospitals.
   (h) For purposes of this section and Sections 1026.1 to 1026.6,
inclusive, "community program director" means the person, agency, or
entity designated by the State Department of State Hospitals pursuant
to Section 1605 of this code and Section 5709.8 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code.
  SEC. 23.  Section 1174.2 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1174.2.  (a) Notwithstanding any other law, the unencumbered
balance of Item 5240-311-751 of Section 2 of the Budget Act of 1990
shall revert to the unappropriated surplus of the 1990 Prison
Construction Fund. The sum of fifteen million dollars ($15,000,000)
is hereby appropriated to the Department of Corrections from the 1990
Prison Construction Fund for site acquisition, site studies,
environmental studies, master planning, architectural programming,
schematics, preliminary plans, working drawings, construction, and
long lead and equipment items for the purpose of constructing
facilities for pregnant and parenting women's alternative sentencing
programs. These funds shall not be expended for any operating costs,
including those costs reimbursed by the department pursuant to
subdivision (c) of Section 1174.3. Funds not expended pursuant to
this chapter shall be used for planning, construction, renovation, or
remodeling by, or under the supervision of, the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation, of community-based facilities for
programs designed to reduce drug use and recidivism, including, but
not limited to, restitution centers, facilities for the incarceration
and rehabilitation of drug offenders, multipurpose correctional
centers, and centers for intensive programs for parolees. These funds
shall not be expended until legislation authorizing the
establishment of these programs is enacted. If the Legislature finds
that the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has made a good
faith effort to site community-based facilities, but funds
designated for these community-based facilities are unexpended as of
January 1, 1998, the Legislature may appropriate these funds for
other Level I housing.
   (b) The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall
purchase, design, construct, and renovate facilities in counties or
multicounty areas with a population of more than 450,000 people
pursuant to this chapter. The department shall target for selection,
among other counties, Los Angeles County, San Diego County, and a bay
area, central valley, and an inland empire county as determined by
the Secretary of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
The department, in consultation with the State Department of Alcohol
and Drug Programs, shall design core alcohol and drug treatment
programs, with specific requirements and standards. Residential
facilities shall be licensed by the State Department of Alcohol and
Drug Programs in accordance with provisions of the Health and Safety
Code governing licensure of alcoholism or drug abuse recovery or
treatment facilities. Residential and nonresidential programs shall
be certified by the State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs as
meeting its standards for perinatal services. Funds shall be awarded
to selected agency service providers based upon all of the following
criteria and procedures:
   (1) A demonstrated ability to provide comprehensive services to
pregnant women or women with children who are substance abusers
consistent with this chapter. Criteria shall include, but not be
limited to, each of the following:
   (A) The success records of the types of programs proposed based
upon standards for successful programs.
   (B) Expertise and actual experience of persons who will be in
charge of the proposed program.
   (C) Cost-effectiveness, including the costs per client served.
   (D) A demonstrated ability to implement a program as expeditiously
as possible.
   (E) An ability to accept referrals and participate in a process
with the probation department determining eligible candidates for the
program.
   (F) A demonstrated ability to seek and obtain supplemental funding
as required in support of the overall administration of this
facility from any county, state, or federal source that may serve to
support this program, including the State Department of Alcohol and
Drug Programs, the California Emergency Management Agency, the State
Department of Social Services, the State Department of State
Hospitals, or any county public health department. In addition, the
agency shall also attempt to secure other available funding from all
county, state, or federal sources for program implementation.
   (G) An ability to provide intensive supervision of the program
participants to ensure complete daily programming.
   (2) Staff from the department shall be available to selected
agencies for consultation and technical services in preparation and
implementation of the selected proposals.
   (3) The department shall consult with existing program operators
that are then currently delivering similar program services, the
State Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, and others it may
identify in the development of the program.
   (4) Funds shall be made available by the department to the
agencies selected to administer the operation of this program.
   (5) Agencies shall demonstrate an ability to provide offenders a
continuing supportive network of outpatient drug treatment and other
services upon the women's completion of the program and reintegration
into the community.
   (6) The department may propose any variation of types and sizes of
facilities to carry out the purposes of this chapter.
   (7) The department shall secure all other available funding for
its eligible population from all county, state, or federal sources.
   (8) Each program proposal shall include a plan for the required
12-month residential program, plus a 12-month outpatient transitional
services program to be completed by participating women and
children.
  SEC. 24.  Section 1203e of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1203e.  (a) Commencing June 1, 2010, the probation department
shall compile a Facts of Offense Sheet for every person convicted of
an offense that requires him or her to register as a sex offender
pursuant to Section 290 who is referred to the department pursuant to
Section 1203. The Facts of Offense Sheet shall contain the following
information concerning the offender: name; CII number; criminal
history, including all arrests and convictions for any registerable
sex offenses or any violent offense; circumstances of the offense for
which registration is required, including, but not limited to,
weapons used and victim pattern; and results of the State-Authorized
Risk Assessment Tool for Sex Offenders (SARATSO), as set forth in
Section 290.04, if required. The Facts of Offense Sheet shall be
included in the probation officer's report.
   (b) The defendant may move the court to correct the Facts of
Offense Sheet. Any corrections to that sheet shall be made consistent
with procedures set forth in Section 1204.
   (c) The probation officer shall send a copy of the Facts of
Offense Sheet to the Department of Justice High Risk Sex Offender
Program within 30 days of the person's sex offense conviction, and it
shall be made part of the registered sex offender's file maintained
by the Sex Offender Tracking Program. The Facts of Offense Sheet
shall thereafter be made available to law enforcement by the
Department of Justice, which shall post it with the offender's record
on the Department of Justice Internet Web site maintained pursuant
to Section 290.46, and shall be accessible only to law enforcement.
   (d) If the registered sex offender is sentenced to a period of
incarceration, at either the state prison or a county jail, the Facts
of Offense Sheet shall be sent by the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation or the county sheriff to the registering law
enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where the registered sex
offender will be paroled or will live on release, within three days
of the person's release. If the registered sex offender is committed
to the State Department of State Hospitals, the Facts of Offense
Sheet shall be sent by the State Department of State Hospitals to the
registering law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction where the
person will live on release, within three days of release.
  SEC. 25.  Section 1369.1 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1369.1.  (a) As used in this chapter, "treatment facility"
includes a county jail. Upon the concurrence of the county board of
supervisors, the county mental health director, and the county
sheriff, the jail may be designated to provide medically approved
medication to defendants found to be mentally incompetent and unable
to provide informed consent due to a mental disorder, pursuant to
this chapter. In the case of Madera, Napa, and Santa Clara Counties,
the concurrence shall be with the board of supervisors, the county
mental health director, and the county sheriff or the chief of
corrections. The provisions of Sections 1370 and 1370.01 shall apply
to antipsychotic medications provided in a county jail, provided,
however, that the maximum period of time a defendant may be treated
in a treatment facility pursuant to this section shall not exceed six
months.
    (b) This section does not abrogate or limit any provision of law
enacted to ensure the due process rights set forth in Sell v. United
States (2003) 539 U.S. 166.
   (c) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1,
2016, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2016, deletes or extends
that date.
  SEC. 26.  Section 1370 of the Penal Code, as amended by Section 1
of Chapter 654 of the Statutes of 2011, is amended to read:
   1370.  (a) (1) (A) If the defendant is found mentally competent,
the criminal process shall resume, the trial on the offense charged
shall proceed, and judgment may be pronounced.
   (B) If the defendant is found mentally incompetent, the trial or
judgment shall be suspended until the person becomes mentally
competent.
   (i) In the meantime, the court shall order that the mentally
incompetent defendant be delivered by the sheriff to a state hospital
for the care and treatment of the mentally disordered, or to any
other available public or private treatment facility, including a
local county jail treatment facility, approved by the community
program director that will promote the defendant's speedy restoration
to mental competence, or placed on outpatient status as specified in
Section 1600.
   (ii) However, if the action against the defendant who has been
found mentally incompetent is on a complaint charging a felony
offense specified in Section 290, the prosecutor shall determine
whether the defendant previously has been found mentally incompetent
to stand trial pursuant to this chapter on a charge of a Section 290
offense, or whether the defendant is currently the subject of a
pending Section 1368 proceeding arising out of a charge of a Section
290 offense. If either determination is made, the prosecutor shall so
notify the court and defendant in writing. After this notification,
and opportunity for hearing, the court shall order that the defendant
be delivered by the sheriff to a state hospital or other secure
treatment facility for the care and treatment of the mentally
disordered unless the court makes specific findings on the record
that an alternative placement would provide more appropriate
treatment for the defendant and would not pose a danger to the health
and safety of others.
   (iii) If the action against the defendant who has been found
mentally incompetent is on a complaint charging a felony offense
specified in Section 290 and the defendant has been denied bail
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 12 of Article I of the
California Constitution because the court has found, based upon clear
and convincing evidence, a substantial likelihood that the person's
release would result in great bodily harm to others, the court shall
order that the defendant be delivered by the sheriff to a state
hospital for the care and treatment of the mentally disordered unless
the court makes specific findings on the record that an alternative
placement would provide more appropriate treatment for the defendant
and would not pose a danger to the health and safety of others.
   (iv) The clerk of the court shall notify the Department of Justice
in writing of any finding of mental incompetence with respect to a
defendant who is subject to clause (ii) or (iii) for inclusion in his
or her state summary criminal history information.
   (C) Upon the filing of a certificate of restoration to competence,
the court shall order that the defendant be returned to court in
accordance with Section 1372. The court shall transmit a copy of its
order to the community program director or a designee.
   (D) A defendant charged with a violent felony may not be delivered
to a state hospital or treatment facility pursuant to this
subdivision unless the state hospital or treatment facility has a
secured perimeter or a locked and controlled treatment facility, and
the judge determines that the public safety will be protected.
   (E) For purposes of this paragraph, "violent felony" means an
offense specified in subdivision (c) of Section 667.5.
   (F) A defendant charged with a violent felony may be placed on
outpatient status, as specified in Section 1600, only if the court
finds that the placement will not pose a danger to the health or
safety of others. If the court places a defendant charged with a
violent felony on outpatient status, as specified in Section 1600,
the court must serve copies of the placement order on defense
counsel, the sheriff in the county where the defendant will be placed
and the district attorney for the county in which the violent felony
charges are pending against the defendant.
   (2) Prior to making the order directing that the defendant be
confined in a state hospital or other treatment facility or placed on
outpatient status, the court shall proceed as follows:
   (A) The court shall order the community program director or a
designee to evaluate the defendant and to submit to the court within
15 judicial days of the order a written recommendation as to whether
the defendant should be required to undergo outpatient treatment, or
committed to a state hospital or to any other treatment facility. No
person shall be admitted to a state hospital or other treatment
facility or placed on outpatient status under this section without
having been evaluated by the community program director or a
designee. The community program director or designee shall evaluate
the appropriate placement for the defendant between a state hospital
or a local county jail treatment facility based upon guidelines
provided by the State Department of State Hospitals. If a local
county jail treatment facility
    is selected, the State Department of State Hospitals shall
provide treatment at the county jail treatment facility and reimburse
the county jail treatment facility for the reasonable costs of the
bed during the treatment. The six-month limitation in Section 1369.1
shall not apply to individuals deemed incompetent to stand trial who
are being treated to restore competency within a county jail
treatment facility pursuant to this section.
   (B) The court shall hear and determine whether the defendant, with
advice of his or her counsel, consents to the administration of
antipsychotic medication, and shall proceed as follows:
   (i) If the defendant, with advice of his or her counsel, consents,
the court order of commitment shall include confirmation that
antipsychotic medication may be given to the defendant as prescribed
by a treating psychiatrist pursuant to the defendant's consent. The
commitment order shall also indicate that, if the defendant withdraws
consent for antipsychotic medication, after the treating
psychiatrist complies with the provisions of subparagraph (C), the
defendant shall be returned to court for a hearing in accordance with
this subdivision regarding whether antipsychotic medication shall be
administered involuntarily.
   (ii) If the defendant does not consent to the administration of
medication, the court shall hear and determine whether any of the
following is true:
   (I) The defendant lacks capacity to make decisions regarding
antipsychotic medication, the defendant's mental disorder requires
medical treatment with antipsychotic medication, and, if the
defendant's mental disorder is not treated with antipsychotic
medication, it is probable that serious harm to the physical or
mental health of the patient will result. Probability of serious harm
to the physical or mental health of the defendant requires evidence
that the defendant is presently suffering adverse effects to his or
her physical or mental health, or the defendant has previously
suffered these effects as a result of a mental disorder and his or
her condition is substantially deteriorating. The fact that a
defendant has a diagnosis of a mental disorder does not alone
establish probability of serious harm to the physical or mental
health of the defendant.
   (II) The defendant is a danger to others, in that the defendant
has inflicted, attempted to inflict, or made a serious threat of
inflicting substantial physical harm on another while in custody, or
the defendant had inflicted, attempted to inflict, or made a serious
threat of inflicting substantial physical harm on another that
resulted in his or her being taken into custody, and the defendant
presents, as a result of mental disorder or mental defect, a
demonstrated danger of inflicting substantial physical harm on
others. Demonstrated danger may be based on an assessment of the
defendant's present mental condition, including a consideration of
past behavior of the defendant within six years prior to the time the
defendant last attempted to inflict, inflicted, or threatened to
inflict substantial physical harm on another, and other relevant
evidence.
   (III) The people have charged the defendant with a serious crime
against the person or property, involuntary administration of
antipsychotic medication is substantially likely to render the
defendant competent to stand trial, the medication is unlikely to
have side effects that interfere with the defendant's ability to
understand the nature of the criminal proceedings or to assist
counsel in the conduct of a defense in a reasonable manner, less
intrusive treatments are unlikely to have substantially the same
results, and antipsychotic medication is in the patient's best
medical interest in light of his or her medical condition.
   (iii) If the court finds any of the conditions described in clause
(ii) to be true, the court shall issue an order authorizing the
treatment facility to involuntarily administer antipsychotic
medication to the defendant when and as prescribed by the defendant's
treating psychiatrist. The court shall not order involuntary
administration of psychotropic medication under subclause (III) of
clause (ii) unless the court has first found that the defendant does
not meet the criteria for involuntary administration of psychotropic
medication under subclause (I) of clause (ii) and does not meet the
criteria under subclause (II) of clause (ii).
   (iv) In all cases, the treating hospital, facility, or program may
administer medically appropriate antipsychotic medication prescribed
by a psychiatrist in an emergency as described in subdivision (m) of
Section 5008 of the Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (v) Any report made pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b)
shall include a description of any antipsychotic medication
administered to the defendant and its effects and side effects,
including effects on the defendant's appearance or behavior that
would affect the defendant's ability to understand the nature of the
criminal proceedings or to assist counsel in the conduct of a defense
in a reasonable manner. During the time the defendant is confined in
a state hospital or other treatment facility or placed on outpatient
status, either the defendant or the people may request that the
court review any order made pursuant to this subdivision. The
defendant, to the same extent enjoyed by other patients in the state
hospital or other treatment facility, shall have the right to contact
the patients' rights advocate regarding his or her rights under this
section.
   (C) If the defendant consented to antipsychotic medication as
described in clause (i) of subparagraph (B), but subsequently
withdraws his or her consent, or, if involuntary antipsychotic
medication was not ordered pursuant to clause (ii) of subparagraph
(B), and the treating psychiatrist determines that antipsychotic
medication has become medically necessary and appropriate, the
treating psychiatrist shall make efforts to obtain informed consent
from the defendant for antipsychotic medication. If informed consent
is not obtained from the defendant, and the treating psychiatrist is
of the opinion that the defendant lacks capacity to make decisions
regarding antipsychotic medication as specified in subclause (I) of
clause (ii) of subparagraph (B), or that the defendant is a danger to
others as specified in subclause (II) of clause (ii) of subparagraph
(B), the committing court shall be notified of this, including an
assessment of the current mental status of the defendant and the
opinion of the treating psychiatrist that involuntary antipsychotic
medication has become medically necessary and appropriate. The court
shall provide notice to the prosecuting attorney and to the attorney
representing the defendant and shall set a hearing to determine
whether involuntary antipsychotic medication should be ordered in the
manner described in subparagraph (B).
   (3) When the court orders that the defendant be confined in a
state hospital or other public or private treatment facility, the
court shall provide copies of the following documents which shall be
taken with the defendant to the state hospital or other treatment
facility where the defendant is to be confined:
   (A) The commitment order, including a specification of the
charges.
   (B) A computation or statement setting forth the maximum term of
commitment in accordance with subdivision (c).
   (C) A computation or statement setting forth the amount of credit
for time served, if any, to be deducted from the maximum term of
commitment.
   (D) State summary criminal history information.
   (E) Any arrest reports prepared by the police department or other
law enforcement agency.
   (F) Any court-ordered psychiatric examination or evaluation
reports.
   (G) The community program director's placement recommendation
report.
   (H) Records of any finding of mental incompetence pursuant to this
chapter arising out of a complaint charging a felony offense
specified in Section 290 or any pending Section 1368 proceeding
arising out of a charge of a Section 290 offense.
   (4) When the defendant is committed to a treatment facility
pursuant to clause (i) of subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) or the
court makes the findings specified in clause (ii) or (iii) of
subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) to assign the defendant to a
treatment facility other than a state hospital or other secure
treatment facility, the court shall order that notice be given to the
appropriate law enforcement agency or agencies having local
jurisdiction at the site of the placement facility of any finding of
mental incompetence pursuant to this chapter arising out of a charge
of a Section 290 offense.
   (5) When directing that the defendant be confined in a state
hospital pursuant to this subdivision, the court shall select the
hospital in accordance with the policies established by the State
Department of State Hospitals.
   (6) (A) If the defendant is committed or transferred to a state
hospital pursuant to this section, the court may, upon receiving the
written recommendation of the medical director of the state hospital
and the community program director that the defendant be transferred
to a public or private treatment facility approved by the community
program director, order the defendant transferred to that facility.
If the defendant is committed or transferred to a public or private
treatment facility approved by the community program director, the
court may, upon receiving the written recommendation of the community
program director, transfer the defendant to a state hospital or to
another public or private treatment facility approved by the
community program director. In the event of dismissal of the criminal
charges before the defendant recovers competence, the person shall
be subject to the applicable provisions of the Lanterman-Petris-Short
Act (Part 1 (commencing with Section 5000) of Division 5 of the
Welfare and Institutions Code). Where either the defendant or the
prosecutor chooses to contest either kind of order of transfer, a
petition may be filed in the court for a hearing, which shall be held
if the court determines that sufficient grounds exist. At the
hearing, the prosecuting attorney or the defendant may present
evidence bearing on the order of transfer. The court shall use the
same standards as are used in conducting probation revocation
hearings pursuant to Section 1203.2.
   Prior to making an order for transfer under this section, the
court shall notify the defendant, the attorney of record for the
defendant, the prosecuting attorney, and the community program
director or a designee.
   (B) If the defendant is initially committed to a state hospital or
secure treatment facility pursuant to clause (ii) or (iii) of
subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) and is subsequently transferred to
any other facility, copies of the documents specified in paragraph
(3) shall be taken with the defendant to each subsequent facility to
which the defendant is transferred. The transferring facility shall
also notify the appropriate law enforcement agency or agencies having
local jurisdiction at the site of the new facility that the
defendant is a person subject to clause (ii) or (iii) of subparagraph
(B) of paragraph (1).
   (b) (1) Within 90 days of a commitment made pursuant to
subdivision (a), the medical director of the state hospital or other
treatment facility to which the defendant is confined shall make a
written report to the court and the community program director for
the county or region of commitment, or a designee, concerning the
defendant's progress toward recovery of mental competence. Where the
defendant is on outpatient status, the outpatient treatment staff
shall make a written report to the community program director
concerning the defendant's progress toward recovery of mental
competence. Within 90 days of placement on outpatient status, the
community program director shall report to the court on this matter.
If the defendant has not recovered mental competence, but the report
discloses a substantial likelihood that the defendant will regain
mental competence in the foreseeable future, the defendant shall
remain in the state hospital or other treatment facility or on
outpatient status. Thereafter, at six-month intervals or until the
defendant becomes mentally competent, where the defendant is confined
in a treatment facility, the medical director of the hospital or
person in charge of the facility shall report in writing to the court
and the community program director or a designee regarding the
defendant's progress toward recovery of mental competence. Where the
defendant is on outpatient status, after the initial 90-day report,
the outpatient treatment staff shall report to the community program
director on the defendant's progress toward recovery, and the
community program director shall report to the court on this matter
at six-month intervals. A copy of these reports shall be provided to
the prosecutor and defense counsel by the court. If the report
indicates that there is no substantial likelihood that the defendant
will regain mental competence in the foreseeable future, the
committing court shall order the defendant to be returned to the
court for proceedings pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (c).
The court shall transmit a copy of its order to the community program
director or a designee.
   (2) Any defendant who has been committed or has been on outpatient
status for 18 months and is still hospitalized or on outpatient
status shall be returned to the committing court where a hearing
shall be held pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 1369.
The court shall transmit a copy of its order to the community program
director or a designee.
   (3) If it is determined by the court that no treatment for the
defendant's mental impairment is being conducted, the defendant shall
be returned to the committing court. The court shall transmit a copy
of its order to the community program director or a designee.
   (4) At each review by the court specified in this subdivision, the
court shall determine if the security level of housing and treatment
is appropriate and may make an order in accordance with its
determination.
   (c) (1) At the end of three years from the date of commitment or a
period of commitment equal to the maximum term of imprisonment
provided by law for the most serious offense charged in the
information, indictment, or misdemeanor complaint, whichever is
shorter, a defendant who has not recovered mental competence shall be
returned to the committing court. The court shall notify the
community program director or a designee of the return and of any
resulting court orders.
   (2) Whenever any defendant is returned to the court pursuant to
paragraph (1) or (2) of subdivision (b) or paragraph (1) of this
subdivision and it appears to the court that the defendant is gravely
disabled, as defined in subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) of
subdivision (h) of Section 5008 of the Welfare and Institutions Code,
the court shall order the conservatorship investigator of the county
of commitment of the defendant to initiate conservatorship
proceedings for the defendant pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing with
Section 5350) of Part 1 of Division 5 of the Welfare and Institutions
Code. Any hearings required in the conservatorship proceedings shall
be held in the superior court in the county that ordered the
commitment. The court shall transmit a copy of the order directing
initiation of conservatorship proceedings to the community program
director or a designee, the sheriff and the district attorney of the
county in which criminal charges are pending, and the defendant's
counsel of record. The court shall notify the community program
director or a designee, the sheriff and district attorney of the
county in which criminal charges are pending, and the defendant's
counsel of record of the outcome of the conservatorship proceedings.
   (3) If a change in placement is proposed for a defendant who is
committed pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) of
subdivision (h) of Section 5008 of the Welfare and Institutions Code,
the court shall provide notice and an opportunity to be heard with
respect to the proposed placement of the defendant to the sheriff and
the district attorney of the county in which criminal charges are
pending.
   (4) Where the defendant is confined in a treatment facility, a
copy of any report to the committing court regarding the defendant's
progress toward recovery of mental competence shall be provided by
the committing court to the prosecutor and to the defense counsel.
   (d) The criminal action remains subject to dismissal pursuant to
Section 1385. If the criminal action is dismissed, the court shall
transmit a copy of the order of dismissal to the community program
director or a designee.
   (e) If the criminal charge against the defendant is dismissed, the
defendant shall be released from any commitment ordered under this
section, but without prejudice to the initiation of any proceedings
that may be appropriate under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act, Part 1
(commencing with Section 5000) of Division 5 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code.
   (f) As used in this chapter, "community program director" means
the person, agency, or entity designated by the State Department of
State Hospitals pursuant to Section 1605 of this code and Section
4360 of the Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (g) For the purpose of this section, "secure treatment facility"
shall not include, except for state mental hospitals, state
developmental centers, and correctional treatment facilities, any
facility licensed pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing with Section
1250) of, Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 1500) of, or Chapter 3.2
(commencing with Section 1569) of, Division 2 of the Health and
Safety Code, or any community board and care facility.
   (h) This section shall remain in effect only until July 1, 2012,
and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that
is enacted before July 1, 2012, deletes or extends that date.
  SEC. 27.  Section 1370 of the Penal Code, as added by Section 2 of
Chapter 654 of the Statutes of 2011, is amended to read:
   1370.  (a) (1) (A) If the defendant is found mentally competent,
the criminal process shall resume, the trial on the offense charged
shall proceed, and judgment may be pronounced.
   (B) If the defendant is found mentally incompetent, the trial or
judgment shall be suspended until the person becomes mentally
competent.
   (i) In the meantime, the court shall order that the mentally
incompetent defendant be delivered by the sheriff to a state hospital
for the care and treatment of the mentally disordered, or to any
other available public or private treatment facility, including a
local county jail treatment facility, approved by the community
program director that will promote the defendant's speedy restoration
to mental competence, or placed on outpatient status as specified in
Section 1600.
   (ii) However, if the action against the defendant who has been
found mentally incompetent is on a complaint charging a felony
offense specified in Section 290, the prosecutor shall determine
whether the defendant previously has been found mentally incompetent
to stand trial pursuant to this chapter on a charge of a Section 290
offense, or whether the defendant is currently the subject of a
pending Section 1368 proceeding arising out of a charge of a Section
290 offense. If either determination is made, the prosecutor shall so
notify the court and defendant in writing. After this notification,
and opportunity for hearing, the court shall order that the defendant
be delivered by the sheriff to a state hospital or other secure
treatment facility for the care and treatment of the mentally
disordered unless the court makes specific findings on the record
that an alternative placement would provide more appropriate
treatment for the defendant and would not pose a danger to the health
and safety of others.
   (iii) If the action against the defendant who has been found
mentally incompetent is on a complaint charging a felony offense
specified in Section 290 and the defendant has been denied bail
pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 12 of Article I of the
California Constitution because the court has found, based upon clear
and convincing evidence, a substantial likelihood that the person's
release would result in great bodily harm to others, the court shall
order that the defendant be delivered by the sheriff to a state
hospital for the care and treatment of the mentally disordered unless
the court makes specific findings on the record that an alternative
placement would provide more appropriate treatment for the defendant
and would not pose a danger to the health and safety of others.
   (iv) The clerk of the court shall notify the Department of Justice
in writing of any finding of mental incompetence with respect to a
defendant who is subject to clause (ii) or (iii) for inclusion in his
or her state summary criminal history information.
   (C) Upon the filing of a certificate of restoration to competence,
the court shall order that the defendant be returned to court in
accordance with Section 1372. The court shall transmit a copy of its
order to the community program director or a designee.
   (D) A defendant charged with a violent felony may not be delivered
to a state hospital or treatment facility pursuant to this
subdivision unless the state hospital or treatment facility has a
secured perimeter or a locked and controlled treatment facility, and
the judge determines that the public safety will be protected.
   (E) For purposes of this paragraph, "violent felony" means an
offense specified in subdivision (c) of Section 667.5.
   (F) A defendant charged with a violent felony may be placed on
outpatient status, as specified in Section 1600, only if the court
finds that the placement will not pose a danger to the health or
safety of others. If the court places a defendant charged with a
violent felony on outpatient status, as specified in Section 1600,
the court must serve copies of the placement order on defense
counsel, the sheriff in the county where the defendant will be placed
and the district attorney for the county in which the violent felony
charges are pending against the defendant.
   (2) Prior to making the order directing that the defendant be
confined in a state hospital or other treatment facility or placed on
outpatient status, the court shall proceed as follows:
   (A) The court shall order the community program director or a
designee to evaluate the defendant and to submit to the court within
15 judicial days of the order a written recommendation as to whether
the defendant should be required to undergo outpatient treatment, or
committed to a state hospital or to any other treatment facility. No
person shall be admitted to a state hospital or other treatment
facility or placed on outpatient status under this section without
having been evaluated by the community program director or a
designee. The community program director or designee shall evaluate
the appropriate placement for the defendant between a state hospital
or a local county jail treatment facility based upon guidelines
provided by the State Department of State Hospitals. If a local
county jail treatment facility is selected, the State Department of
State Hospitals shall provide treatment at the county jail treatment
facility and reimburse the county jail treatment facility for the
reasonable costs of the bed during the treatment. The six-month
limitation in Section 1369.1 shall not apply to individuals deemed
incompetent to stand trial who are being treated to restore
competency within a county jail treatment facility pursuant to this
section.
   (B) The court shall hear and determine whether the defendant lacks
capacity to make decisions regarding the administration of
antipsychotic medication, and shall proceed as follows:
   (i) The court shall hear and determine whether any of the
following is true:
   (I) The defendant lacks capacity to make decisions regarding
antipsychotic medication, the defendant's mental disorder requires
medical treatment with antipsychotic medication, and, if the
defendant's mental disorder is not treated with antipsychotic
medication, it is probable that serious harm to the physical or
mental health of the patient will result. Probability of serious harm
to the physical or mental health of the defendant requires evidence
that the defendant is presently suffering adverse effects to his or
her physical or mental health, or the defendant has previously
suffered these effects as a result of a mental disorder and his or
her condition is substantially deteriorating. The fact that a
defendant has a diagnosis of a mental disorder does not alone
establish probability of serious harm to the physical or mental
health of the defendant.
   (II) The defendant is a danger to others, in that the defendant
has inflicted, attempted to inflict, or made a serious threat of
inflicting substantial physical harm on another while in custody, or
the defendant had inflicted, attempted to inflict, or made a serious
threat of inflicting substantial physical harm on another that
resulted in his or her being taken into custody, and the defendant
presents, as a result of mental disorder or mental defect, a
demonstrated danger of inflicting substantial physical harm on
others. Demonstrated danger may be based on an assessment of the
defendant's present mental condition, including a consideration of
past behavior of the defendant within six years prior to the time the
defendant last attempted to inflict, inflicted, or threatened to
inflict substantial physical harm on another, and other relevant
evidence.
   (III) The people have charged the defendant with a serious crime
against the person or property, involuntary administration of
antipsychotic medication is substantially likely to render the
defendant competent to stand trial, the medication is unlikely to
have side effects that interfere with the defendant's ability to
understand the nature of the criminal proceedings or to assist
counsel in the conduct of a defense in a reasonable manner, less
intrusive treatments are unlikely to have substantially the same
results, and antipsychotic medication is in the patient's best
medical interest in light of his or her medical condition.
   (ii) If the court finds any of the conditions described in clause
(i) to be true, the court shall issue an order authorizing the
treatment facility to involuntarily administer antipsychotic
medication to the defendant when and as prescribed by the defendant's
treating psychiatrist. The court shall not order involuntary
administration of psychotropic medication under
                     subclause (III) of clause (i) unless the court
has first found that the defendant does not meet the criteria for
involuntary administration of psychotropic medication under subclause
(I) of clause (i) and does not meet the criteria under subclause
(II) of clause (i).
   (iii) In all cases, the treating hospital, facility, or program
may administer medically appropriate antipsychotic medication
prescribed by a psychiatrist in an emergency as described in
subdivision (m) of Section 5008 of the Welfare and Institutions Code.

   (iv) If the court has determined that the defendant has the
capacity to make decisions regarding antipsychotic medication, and if
the defendant, with advice of his or her counsel, consents, the
court order of commitment shall include confirmation that
antipsychotic medication may be given to the defendant as prescribed
by a treating psychiatrist pursuant to the defendant's consent. The
commitment order shall also indicate that, if the defendant withdraws
consent for antipsychotic medication, after the treating
psychiatrist complies with the provisions of subparagraph (C), the
defendant shall be returned to court for a hearing in accordance with
subparagraphs (C) and (D) regarding whether antipsychotic medication
shall be administered involuntarily.
   (v) If the court has determined that the defendant has the
capacity to make decisions regarding antipsychotic medication and if
the defendant, with advice from his or her counsel, does not consent,
the court order for commitment shall indicate that, after the
treating psychiatrist complies with the provisions of subparagraph
(C), the defendant shall be returned to court for a hearing in
accordance with subparagraphs (C) and (D) regarding whether
antipsychotic medication shall be administered involuntarily.
   (vi) Any report made pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b)
shall include a description of any antipsychotic medication
administered to the defendant and its effects and side effects,
including effects on the defendant's appearance or behavior that
would affect the defendant's ability to understand the nature of the
criminal proceedings or to assist counsel in the conduct of a defense
in a reasonable manner. During the time the defendant is confined in
a state hospital or other treatment facility or placed on outpatient
status, either the defendant or the people may request that the
court review any order made pursuant to this subdivision. The
defendant, to the same extent enjoyed by other patients in the state
hospital or other treatment facility, shall have the right to contact
the patients' rights advocate regarding his or her rights under this
section.
   (C) If the defendant consented to antipsychotic medication as
described in clause (iv) of subparagraph (B), but subsequently
withdraws his or her consent, or, if involuntary antipsychotic
medication was not ordered pursuant to clause (v) of subparagraph
(B), and the treating psychiatrist determines that antipsychotic
medication has become medically necessary and appropriate, the
treating psychiatrist shall make efforts to obtain informed consent
from the defendant for antipsychotic medication. If informed consent
is not obtained from the defendant, and the treating psychiatrist is
of the opinion that the defendant lacks capacity to make decisions
regarding antipsychotic medication based on the conditions described
in subclause (I) or (II) of clause (i) of subparagraph (B), the
treating psychiatrist shall certify whether the lack of capacity and
any applicable conditions described above exist. That certification
shall contain an assessment of the current mental status of the
defendant and the opinion of the treating psychiatrist that
involuntary antipsychotic medication has become medically necessary
and appropriate.
   (D) (i) If the treating psychiatrist certifies that antipsychotic
medication has become medically necessary and appropriate pursuant to
subparagraph (C), antipsychotic medication may be administered to
the defendant for not more than 21 days, provided, however, that,
within 72 hours of the certification, the defendant is provided a
medication review hearing before an administrative law judge to be
conducted at the facility where the defendant is receiving treatment.
The treating psychiatrist shall present the case for the
certification for involuntary treatment and the defendant shall be
represented by an attorney or a patients' rights advocate. The
attorney or patients' rights advocate shall be appointed to meet with
the defendant no later than one day prior to the medication review
hearing to review the defendant's rights at the medication review
hearing, discuss the process, answer questions or concerns regarding
involuntary medication or the hearing, assist the defendant in
preparing for the hearing and advocating for his or her interests at
the hearing, review the panel's final determination following the
hearing, advise the defendant of his or her right to judicial review
of the panel's decision, and provide the defendant with referral
information for legal advice on the subject. The defendant shall also
have the following rights with respect to the medication review
hearing:
   (I) To being given timely access to the defendant's records.
   (II)  To be present at the hearing, unless the defendant waives
that right.
   (III) To present evidence at the hearing.
   (IV) To question persons presenting evidence supporting
involuntary medication.
   (V) To make reasonable requests for attendance of witnesses on the
defendant's behalf.
   (VI) To a hearing conducted in an impartial and informal manner.
   (ii) If the administrative law judge determines that the defendant
either meets the criteria specified in subclause (I) of clause (i)
of subparagraph (B), or meets the criteria specified in subclause
(II) of clause (i) of subparagraph (B), then antipsychotic medication
may continue to be administered to the defendant for the 21-day
certification period. Concurrently with the treating psychiatrist's
certification, the treating psychiatrist shall file a copy of the
certification and a petition with the court for issuance of an order
to administer antipsychotic medication beyond the 21-day
certification period. For purposes of this subparagraph, the treating
psychiatrist shall not be required to pay or deposit any fee for the
filing of the petition or other document or paper related to the
petition.
   (iii) If the administrative law judge disagrees with the
certification, medication may not be administered involuntarily until
the court determines that antipsychotic medication should be
administered pursuant to this section.
   (iv) The court shall provide notice to the prosecuting attorney
and to the attorney representing the defendant, and shall hold a
hearing, no later than 18 days from the date of the certification, to
determine whether antipsychotic medication should be ordered beyond
the certification period.
   (v) If, as a result of the hearing, the court determines that
antipsychotic medication should be administered beyond the
certification period, the court shall issue an order authorizing the
administration of that medication.
   (vi) The court shall render its decision on the petition and issue
its order no later than three calendar days after the hearing and,
in any event, no later than the expiration of the 21-day
certification period.
   (3) When the court orders that the defendant be confined in a
state hospital or other public or private treatment facility, the
court shall provide copies of the following documents which shall be
taken with the defendant to the state hospital or other treatment
facility where the defendant is to be confined:
   (A) The commitment order, including a specification of the
charges.
   (B) A computation or statement setting forth the maximum term of
commitment in accordance with subdivision (c).
   (C) A computation or statement setting forth the amount of credit
for time served, if any, to be deducted from the maximum term of
commitment.
   (D) State summary criminal history information.
   (E) Any arrest reports prepared by the police department or other
law enforcement agency.
   (F) Any court-ordered psychiatric examination or evaluation
reports.
   (G) The community program director's placement recommendation
report.
   (H) Records of any finding of mental incompetence pursuant to this
chapter arising out of a complaint charging a felony offense
specified in Section 290 or any pending Section 1368 proceeding
arising out of a charge of a Section 290 offense.
   (4) When the defendant is committed to a treatment facility
pursuant to clause (i) of subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) or the
court makes the findings specified in clause (ii) or (iii) of
subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) to assign the defendant to a
treatment facility other than a state hospital or other secure
treatment facility, the court shall order that notice be given to the
appropriate law enforcement agency or agencies having local
jurisdiction at the site of the placement facility of any finding of
mental incompetence pursuant to this chapter arising out of a charge
of a Section 290 offense.
   (5) When directing that the defendant be confined in a state
hospital pursuant to this subdivision, the court shall select the
hospital in accordance with the policies established by the State
Department of State Hospitals.
   (6) (A) If the defendant is committed or transferred to a state
hospital pursuant to this section, the court may, upon receiving the
written recommendation of the medical director of the state hospital
and the community program director that the defendant be transferred
to a public or private treatment facility approved by the community
program director, order the defendant transferred to that facility.
If the defendant is committed or transferred to a public or private
treatment facility approved by the community program director, the
court may, upon receiving the written recommendation of the community
program director, transfer the defendant to a state hospital or to
another public or private treatment facility approved by the
community program director. In the event of dismissal of the criminal
charges before the defendant recovers competence, the person shall
be subject to the applicable provisions of the Lanterman-Petris-Short
Act (Part 1 (commencing with Section 5000) of Division 5 of the
Welfare and Institutions Code). Where either the defendant or the
prosecutor chooses to contest either kind of order of transfer, a
petition may be filed in the court for a hearing, which shall be held
if the court determines that sufficient grounds exist. At the
hearing, the prosecuting attorney or the defendant may present
evidence bearing on the order of transfer. The court shall use the
same standards as are used in conducting probation revocation
hearings pursuant to Section 1203.2.
   Prior to making an order for transfer under this section, the
court shall notify the defendant, the attorney of record for the
defendant, the prosecuting attorney, and the community program
director or a designee.
   (B) If the defendant is initially committed to a state hospital or
secure treatment facility pursuant to clause (ii) or (iii) of
subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) and is subsequently transferred to
any other facility, copies of the documents specified in paragraph
(3) shall be taken with the defendant to each subsequent facility to
which the defendant is transferred. The transferring facility shall
also notify the appropriate law enforcement agency or agencies having
local jurisdiction at the site of the new facility that the
defendant is a person subject to clause (ii) or (iii) of subparagraph
(B) of paragraph (1).
   (7) An order by the court authorizing involuntary medication of
the defendant shall be valid for no more than one year. The court
shall review the order six months after the order was made to
determine if the grounds for the authorization remain. In the review,
the court shall consider the reports of the treating psychiatrist or
psychiatrists and the defendant's patients' rights advocate or
attorney. The court may require testimony from the treating
psychiatrist or psychiatrists and the patients' rights advocate or
attorney, if necessary. The court may continue the order authorizing
involuntary medication for up to another six months, or vacate the
order, or make any other appropriate order.
   (b) (1) Within 90 days of a commitment made pursuant to
subdivision (a), the medical director of the state hospital or other
treatment facility to which the defendant is confined shall make a
written report to the court and the community program director for
the county or region of commitment, or a designee, concerning the
defendant's progress toward recovery of mental competence. Where the
defendant is on outpatient status, the outpatient treatment staff
shall make a written report to the community program director
concerning the defendant's progress toward recovery of mental
competence. Within 90 days of placement on outpatient status, the
community program director shall report to the court on this matter.
If the defendant has not recovered mental competence, but the report
discloses a substantial likelihood that the defendant will regain
mental competence in the foreseeable future, the defendant shall
remain in the state hospital or other treatment facility or on
outpatient status. Thereafter, at six-month intervals or until the
defendant becomes mentally competent, where the defendant is confined
in a treatment facility, the medical director of the hospital or
person in charge of the facility shall report in writing to the court
and the community program director or a designee regarding the
defendant's progress toward recovery of mental competence. Where the
defendant is on outpatient status, after the initial 90-day report,
the outpatient treatment staff shall report to the community program
director on the defendant's progress toward recovery, and the
community program director shall report to the court on this matter
at six-month intervals. A copy of these reports shall be provided to
the prosecutor and defense counsel by the court. If the report
indicates that there is no substantial likelihood that the defendant
will regain mental competence in the foreseeable future, the
committing court shall order the defendant to be returned to the
court for proceedings pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (c).
The court shall transmit a copy of its order to the community program
director or a designee.
   (2) Where the court has issued an order authorizing the treating
facility to involuntarily administer antipsychotic medication to the
defendant, the reports made at six-month intervals concerning the
defendant's progress toward regaining competency shall also consider
the issue of involuntary medication. Each report shall include, but
is not limited to, all the following:
   (A) Whether or not the defendant has the capacity to make
decisions concerning antipsychotic medication.
   (B) If the defendant lacks capacity to make decisions concerning
antipsychotic medication, whether the defendant risks serious harm to
his or her physical or mental health if not treated with
antipsychotic medication.
   (C) Whether or not the defendant presents a danger to others if he
or she is not treated with antipsychotic medication.
   (D) Whether the defendant has a mental illness for which
medications are the only effective treatment.
   (E) Whether there are any side effects from the medication
currently being experienced by the defendant that would interfere
with the defendant's ability to collaborate with counsel.
   (F) Whether there are any effective alternatives to medication.
   (G) How quickly the medication is likely to bring the defendant to
competency.
   (H) Whether the treatment plan includes methods other than
medication to restore the defendant to competency.
   (I) A statement, if applicable, that no medication is likely to
restore the defendant to competency.
   (3) After reviewing the reports, the court shall determine whether
or not grounds for the order authorizing involuntary administration
of antipsychotic medication still exist and shall do one of the
following:
   (A) If the original grounds for involuntary medication still
exist, the order authorizing the treating facility to involuntarily
administer antipsychotic medication to the defendant shall remain in
effect.
   (B) If the original grounds for involuntary medication no longer
exist, and there is no other basis for involuntary administration of
antipsychotic medication, the order for the involuntary
administration of antipsychotic medication shall be vacated.
   (C) If the original grounds for involuntary medication no longer
exist, and the report states that there is another basis for
involuntary administration of antipsychotic medication, the court
shall set a hearing within 21 days to determine whether the order for
the involuntary administration of antipsychotic medication shall be
vacated or whether a new order for the involuntary administration of
antipsychotic medication shall be issued. The hearing shall proceed
as set forth in subparagraph (B) of paragraph (2) of subdivision (a).

   (4) Any defendant who has been committed or has been on outpatient
status for 18 months and is still hospitalized or on outpatient
status shall be returned to the committing court where a hearing
shall be held pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 1369.
The court shall transmit a copy of its order to the community program
director or a designee.
   (5) If it is determined by the court that no treatment for the
defendant's mental impairment is being conducted, the defendant shall
be returned to the committing court. The court shall transmit a copy
of its order to the community program director or a designee.
   (6) At each review by the court specified in this subdivision, the
court shall determine if the security level of housing and treatment
is appropriate and may make an order in accordance with its
determination. If the court determines that the defendant shall
continue to be treated in the state hospital or on an outpatient
basis, the court shall determine issues concerning administration of
antipsychotic medication, as set forth in subparagraph (B) of
paragraph (2) of subdivision (a).
   (c) (1) At the end of three years from the date of commitment or a
period of commitment equal to the maximum term of imprisonment
provided by law for the most serious offense charged in the
information, indictment, or misdemeanor complaint, whichever is
shorter, a defendant who has not recovered mental competence shall be
returned to the committing court. The court shall notify the
community program director or a designee of the return and of any
resulting court orders.
   (2) Whenever any defendant is returned to the court pursuant to
paragraph (1) or (4) of subdivision (b) or paragraph (1) of this
subdivision and it appears to the court that the defendant is gravely
disabled, as defined in subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) of
subdivision (h) of Section 5008 of the Welfare and Institutions Code,
the court shall order the conservatorship investigator of the county
of commitment of the defendant to initiate conservatorship
proceedings for the defendant pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing with
Section 5350) of Part 1 of Division 5 of the Welfare and Institutions
Code. Any hearings required in the conservatorship proceedings shall
be held in the superior court in the county that ordered the
commitment. The court shall transmit a copy of the order directing
initiation of conservatorship proceedings to the community program
director or a designee, the sheriff and the district attorney of the
county in which criminal charges are pending, and the defendant's
counsel of record. The court shall notify the community program
director or a designee, the sheriff and district attorney of the
county in which criminal charges are pending, and the defendant's
counsel of record of the outcome of the conservatorship proceedings.
   (3) If a change in placement is proposed for a defendant who is
committed pursuant to subparagraph (B) of paragraph (1) of
subdivision (h) of Section 5008 of the Welfare and Institutions Code,
the court shall provide notice and an opportunity to be heard with
respect to the proposed placement of the defendant to the sheriff and
the district attorney of the county in which criminal charges are
pending.
   (4) Where the defendant is confined in a treatment facility, a
copy of any report to the committing court regarding the defendant's
progress toward recovery of mental competence shall be provided by
the committing court to the prosecutor and to the defense counsel.
   (d) The criminal action remains subject to dismissal pursuant to
Section 1385. If the criminal action is dismissed, the court shall
transmit a copy of the order of dismissal to the community program
director or a designee.
   (e) If the criminal charge against the defendant is dismissed, the
defendant shall be released from any commitment ordered under this
section, but without prejudice to the initiation of any proceedings
that may be appropriate under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act, Part 1
(commencing with Section 5000) of Division 5 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code.
   (f) As used in this chapter, "community program director" means
the person, agency, or entity designated by the State Department of
State Hospitals pursuant to Section 1605 of this code and Section
4360 of the Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (g) For the purpose of this section, "secure treatment facility"
shall not include, except for state mental hospitals, state
developmental centers, and correctional treatment facilities, any
facility licensed pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing with Section
1250) of, Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 1500) of, or Chapter 3.2
(commencing with Section 1569) of, Division 2 of the Health and
Safety Code, or any community board and care facility.
   (h) Nothing in this section shall preclude a defendant from filing
a petition for habeas corpus to challenge the continuing validity of
an order authorizing a treatment facility or outpatient program to
involuntarily administer antipsychotic medication to a person being
treated as incompetent to stand trial.
   (i) This section shall become operative on July 1, 2012.
  SEC. 28.  Section 1372 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1372.  (a) (1) If the medical director of the state hospital or
other facility to which the defendant is committed, or the community
program director, county mental health director, or regional center
director providing outpatient services, determines that the defendant
has regained mental competence, the director shall immediately
certify that fact to the court by filing a certificate of restoration
with the court by certified mail, return receipt requested. For
purposes of this section, the date of filing shall be the date on the
return receipt.
   (2) The court's order committing an individual to a state hospital
or other treatment facility pursuant to Section 1370 shall include
direction that the sheriff shall redeliver the patient to the court
without any further order from the court upon receiving from the
state hospital or treatment facility a copy of the certificate of
restoration.
   (3) The defendant shall be returned to the committing court in the
following manner:
   (A) A patient who remains confined in a state hospital or other
treatment facility shall be redelivered to the sheriff of the county
from which the patient was committed. The sheriff shall immediately
return the person from the state hospital or other treatment facility
to the court for further proceedings.
   (B) The patient who is on outpatient status shall be returned by
the sheriff to court through arrangements made by the outpatient
treatment supervisor.
   (C) In all cases, the patient shall be returned to the committing
court no later than 10 days following the filing of a certificate of
restoration. The state shall only pay for 10 hospital days for
patients following the filing of a certificate of restoration of
competency. The State Department of State Hospitals shall report to
the fiscal and appropriate policy committees of the Legislature on an
annual basis in February, on the number of days that exceed the
10-day limit prescribed in this subparagraph. This report shall
include, but not be limited to, a data sheet that itemizes by county
the number of days that exceed this 10-day limit during the preceding
year.
   (b) If the defendant becomes mentally competent after a
conservatorship has been established pursuant to the applicable
provisions of the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act, Part 1 (commencing with
Section 5000) of Division 5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code,
and Section 1370, the conservator shall certify that fact to the
sheriff and district attorney of the county in which the defendant's
case is pending, defendant's attorney of record, and the committing
court.
   (c) When a defendant is returned to court with a certification
that competence has been regained, the court shall notify either the
community program director, the county mental health director, or the
regional center director and the Director of Developmental Services,
as appropriate, of the date of any hearing on the defendant's
competence and whether or not the defendant was found by the court to
have recovered competence.
   (d) If the committing court approves the certificate of
restoration to competence as to a person in custody, the court shall
hold a hearing to determine whether the person is entitled to be
admitted to bail or released on own recognizance status pending
conclusion of the proceedings. If the superior court approves the
certificate of restoration to competence regarding a person on
outpatient status, unless it appears that the person has refused to
come to court, that person shall remain released either on own
recognizance status, or, in the case of a developmentally disabled
person, either on the defendant's promise or on the promise of a
responsible adult to secure the person's appearance in court for
further proceedings. If the person has refused to come to court, the
court shall set bail and may place the person in custody until bail
is posted.
   (e) A defendant subject to either subdivision (a) or (b) who is
not admitted to bail or released under subdivision (d) may, at the
discretion of the court, upon recommendation of the director of the
facility where the defendant is receiving treatment, be returned to
the hospital or facility of his or her original commitment or other
appropriate secure facility approved by the community program
director, the                                            county
mental health director, or the regional center director. The
recommendation submitted to the court shall be based on the opinion
that the person will need continued treatment in a hospital or
treatment facility in order to maintain competence to stand trial or
that placing the person in a jail environment would create a
substantial risk that the person would again become incompetent to
stand trial before criminal proceedings could be resumed.
   (f) Notwithstanding subdivision (e), if a defendant is returned by
the court to a hospital or other facility for the purpose of
maintaining competency to stand trial and that defendant is already
under civil commitment to that hospital or facility from another
county pursuant to the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act (Part 1 (commencing
with Section 5000) of Division 5 of the Welfare and Institutions
Code) or as a developmentally disabled person committed pursuant to
Article 2 (commencing with Section 6500) of Chapter 2 of Part 2 of
Division 6 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, the costs of housing
and treating the defendant in that facility following return
pursuant to subdivision (e) shall be the responsibility of the
original county of civil commitment.

Department of State Hospitals shall be responsible for the
supervision of persons placed on outpatient status under this title.
The State Department of State Hospitals shall designate, for each

this title. The community program director may delegate the
outpatient treatment supervision responsibility to a designee.
   (d) The outpatient treatment supervisor shall, at 90-day intervals
following the beginning of outpatient treatment, submit to the

   1615.  Pursuant to Section 5709.8 of the Welfare and Institutions
Code, the State Department of State Hospitals shall be responsible
for the community treatment and supervision of judicially committed
patients. These services shall be available on a county or regional
basis. The department may provide these services directly or through
contract with private providers or counties. The program or programs
through which these services are provided shall be known as the
Forensic Conditional Release Program.
   The department shall contact all county mental health programs by
January 1, 1986, to determine their interest in providing an
appropriate level of supervision and treatment of judicially
committed patients at reasonable cost. County mental health agencies
may agree or refuse to operate such a program.
   The State Department of State Hospitals shall ensure consistent
data gathering and program standards for use statewide by the
Forensic Conditional Release Program.
  SEC. 32.  Section 1616 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1616.  The state shall contract with a research agency which shall
determine the prevalence of severe mental disorder among the state
prison inmates and parolees, including persons admitted to prison,
the resident population, and those discharged to parole. An
evaluation of the array of services shall be performed, including the
correctional, state hospital, and local inpatient programs;
residential-level care and partial day care within the institutions
as well as in the community; and the individual and group treatment
which may be provided within the correctional setting and in the
community upon release. The review shall include the
interrelationship between the security and clinical staff, as well as
the architectural design which aids meeting the treatment needs of
these mentally ill offenders while maintaining a secure setting.
Administration of these programs within the institutions and in the
community shall be reviewed by the contracting agency. The ability of
treatment programs to prevent reoffenses by inmates with severe
mental disorders shall also be addressed. The process for evaluating
inmates and parolees to determine their need for treatment and the
ability to differentiate those who will benefit from treatment and
those who will not shall be reviewed.
   The State Department of State Hospitals, the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation, and the Department of Justice shall
cooperate with the research agency conducting this study.
   The research agency conducting this study shall consult with the
State Department of State Hospitals, the Department of Corrections
and Rehabilitation, the Department of Justice, and the Forensic
Mental Health Association of California in the design of the study.
  SEC. 33.  Section 1617 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1617.  The State Department of State Hospitals shall research the
demographic profiles and other related information pertaining to
persons receiving supervision and treatment in the Forensic
Conditional Release Program. An evaluation of the program shall
determine its effectiveness in successfully reintegrating these
persons into society after release from state institutions. This
evaluation of program effectiveness shall include, but not be limited
to, a determination of the rates of reoffense while these persons
are served by the program and after their discharge. This evaluation
shall also address the effectiveness of the various treatment
components of the program and their intensity.
   The State Department of State Hospitals may contract with an
independent research agency to perform this research and evaluation
project. Any independent research agency conducting this research
shall consult with the Forensic Mental Health Association concerning
the development of the research and evaluation design.
  SEC. 34.  Section 1618 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1618.  The administrators and the supervision and treatment staff
of the Forensic Conditional Release Program shall not be held
criminally or civilly liable for any criminal acts committed by the
persons on parole or judicial commitment status who receive
supervision or treatment. This waiver of liability shall apply to
employees of the State Department of State Hospitals, the Board of
Parole Hearings, and the agencies or persons under contract to those
agencies, who provide screening, clinical evaluation, supervision, or
treatment to mentally ill parolees or persons under judicial
commitment or considered for placement under a hold by the Board of
Parole Hearings.
  SEC. 35.  Section 2684 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2684.  (a) If, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Department
of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the rehabilitation of any mentally
ill, mentally deficient, or insane person confined in a state prison
may be expedited by treatment at any one of the state hospitals
under the jurisdiction of the State Department of State Hospitals or
the State Department of Developmental Services, the Secretary of the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, with the approval of
the Board of Parole Hearings for persons sentenced pursuant to
subdivision (b) of Section 1168, shall certify that fact to the
director of the appropriate department who shall evaluate the
prisoner to determine if he or she would benefit from care and
treatment in a state hospital. If the director of the appropriate
department so determines, the superintendent of the hospital shall
receive the prisoner and keep him or her until in the opinion of the
superintendent the person has been treated to the extent that he or
she will not benefit from further care and treatment in the state
hospital.
   (b) Whenever the Secretary of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation receives a recommendation from the court that a
defendant convicted of a violation of Section 646.9 and sentenced to
confinement in the state prison would benefit from treatment in a
state hospital pursuant to subdivision (a), the secretary shall
consider the recommendation. If appropriate, the secretary shall
certify that the rehabilitation of the defendant may be expedited by
treatment in a state hospital and subdivision (a) shall apply.
  SEC. 36.  Section 2962 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2962.  As a condition of parole, a prisoner who meets the
following criteria shall be required to be treated by the State
Department of State Hospitals, and the State Department of State
Hospitals shall provide the necessary treatment:
   (a) (1) The prisoner has a severe mental disorder that is not in
remission or cannot be kept in remission without treatment.
   (2) The term "severe mental disorder" means an illness or disease
or condition that substantially impairs the person's thought,
perception of reality, emotional process, or judgment; or which
grossly impairs behavior; or that demonstrates evidence of an acute
brain syndrome for which prompt remission, in the absence of
treatment, is unlikely. The term "severe mental disorder" as used in
this section does not include a personality or adjustment disorder,
epilepsy, mental retardation or other developmental disabilities, or
addiction to or abuse of intoxicating substances.
   (3) The term "remission" means a finding that the overt signs and
symptoms of the severe mental disorder are controlled either by
psychotropic medication or psychosocial support. A person "cannot be
kept in remission without treatment" if during the year prior to the
question being before the Board of Parole Hearings or a trial court,
he or she has been in remission and he or she has been physically
violent, except in self-defense, or he or she has made a serious
threat of substantial physical harm upon the person of another so as
to cause the target of the threat to reasonably fear for his or her
safety or the safety of his or her immediate family, or he or she has
intentionally caused property damage, or he or she has not
voluntarily followed the treatment plan. In determining if a person
has voluntarily followed the treatment plan, the standard shall be
whether the person has acted as a reasonable person would in
following the treatment plan.
   (b) The severe mental disorder was one of the causes of or was an
aggravating factor in the commission of a crime for which the
prisoner was sentenced to prison.
   (c) The prisoner has been in treatment for the severe mental
disorder for 90 days or more within the year prior to the prisoner's
parole or release.
   (d) (1) Prior to release on parole, the person in charge of
treating the prisoner and a practicing psychiatrist or psychologist
from the State Department of State Hospitals have evaluated the
prisoner at a facility of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation, and a chief psychiatrist of the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation has certified to the Board of Parole
Hearings that the prisoner has a severe mental disorder, that the
disorder is not in remission, or cannot be kept in remission without
treatment, that the severe mental disorder was one of the causes or
was an aggravating factor in the prisoner's criminal behavior, that
the prisoner has been in treatment for the severe mental disorder for
90 days or more within the year prior to his or her parole release
day, and that by reason of his or her severe mental disorder the
prisoner represents a substantial danger of physical harm to others.
For prisoners being treated by the State Department of State
Hospitals pursuant to Section 2684, the certification shall be by a
chief psychiatrist of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation, and the evaluation shall be done at a state hospital
by the person at the state hospital in charge of treating the
prisoner and a practicing psychiatrist or psychologist from the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
   (2) If the professionals doing the evaluation pursuant to
paragraph (1) do not concur that (A) the prisoner has a severe mental
disorder, (B) that the disorder is not in remission or cannot be
kept in remission without treatment, or (C) that the severe mental
disorder was a cause of, or aggravated, the prisoner's criminal
behavior, and a chief psychiatrist has certified the prisoner to the
Board of Parole Hearings pursuant to this paragraph, then the Board
of Parole Hearings shall order a further examination by two
independent professionals, as provided for in Section 2978.
   (3) If at least one of the independent professionals who evaluate
the prisoner pursuant to paragraph (2) concurs with the chief
psychiatrist's certification of the issues described in paragraph
(2), this subdivision shall be applicable to the prisoner. The
professionals appointed pursuant to Section 2978 shall inform the
prisoner that the purpose of their examination is not treatment but
to determine if the prisoner meets certain criteria to be
involuntarily treated as a mentally disordered offender. It is not
required that the prisoner appreciate or understand that information.

   (e) The crime referred to in subdivision (b) meets both of the
following criteria:
   (1) The defendant received a determinate sentence pursuant to
Section 1170 for the crime.
   (2) The crime is one of the following:
   (A) Voluntary manslaughter.
   (B) Mayhem.
   (C) Kidnapping in violation of Section 207.
   (D) Any robbery wherein it was charged and proved that the
defendant personally used a deadly or dangerous weapon, as provided
in subdivision (b) of Section 12022, in the commission of that
robbery.
   (E) Carjacking, as defined in subdivision (a) of Section 215, if
it is charged and proved that the defendant personally used a deadly
or dangerous weapon, as provided in subdivision (b) of Section 12022,
in the commission of the carjacking.
   (F) Rape, as defined in paragraph (2) or (6) of subdivision (a) of
Section 261 or paragraph (1) or (4) of subdivision (a) of Section
262.
   (G) Sodomy by force, violence, duress, menace, or fear of
immediate and unlawful bodily injury on the victim or another person.

   (H) Oral copulation by force, violence, duress, menace, or fear of
immediate and unlawful bodily injury on the victim or another
person.
   (I) Lewd acts on a child under the age of 14 years in violation of
Section 288.
   (J) Continuous sexual abuse in violation of Section 288.5.
   (K) The offense described in subdivision (a) of Section 289 where
the act was accomplished against the victim's will by force,
violence, duress, menace, or fear of immediate and unlawful bodily
injury on the victim or another person.
   (L) Arson in violation of subdivision (a) of Section 451, or arson
in violation of any other provision of Section 451 or in violation
of Section 455 where the act posed a substantial danger of physical
harm to others.
   (M) Any felony in which the defendant used a firearm which use was
charged and proved as provided in Section 12022.5, 12022.53, or
12022.55.
   (N) A violation of Section 18745.
   (O) Attempted murder.
   (P) A crime not enumerated in subparagraphs (A) to (O), inclusive,
in which the prisoner used force or violence, or caused serious
bodily injury as defined in paragraph (4) of subdivision (f) of
Section 243.
   (Q) A crime in which the perpetrator expressly or impliedly
threatened another with the use of force or violence likely to
produce substantial physical harm in such a manner that a reasonable
person would believe and expect that the force or violence would be
used. For purposes of this subparagraph, substantial physical harm
shall not require proof that the threatened act was likely to cause
great or serious bodily injury.
   (f) As used in this chapter, "substantial danger of physical harm"
does not require proof of a recent overt act.
  SEC. 37.  Section 2964 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2964.  (a) The treatment required by Section 2962 shall be
inpatient unless the State Department of State Hospitals certifies to
the Board of Parole Hearings that there is reasonable cause to
believe the parolee can be safely and effectively treated on an
outpatient basis, in which case the Board of Parole Hearings shall
permit the State Department of State Hospitals to place the parolee
in an outpatient treatment program specified by the State Department
of State Hospitals. Any prisoner who is to be required to accept
treatment pursuant to Section 2962 shall be informed in writing of
his or her right to request a hearing pursuant to Section 2966. Prior
to placing a parolee in a local outpatient program, the State
Department of State Hospitals shall consult with the local outpatient
program as to the appropriate treatment plan. Notwithstanding any
other law, a parolee ordered to have outpatient treatment pursuant to
this section may be placed in an outpatient treatment program used
to provide outpatient treatment under Title 15 (commencing with
Section 1600) of Part 2, but the procedural provisions of Title 15
shall not apply. The community program director or a designee of an
outpatient program used to provide treatment under Title 15 in which
a parolee is placed, may place the parolee, or cause the parolee to
be placed, in a secure mental health facility if the parolee can no
longer be safely or effectively treated in the outpatient program,
and until the parolee can be safely and effectively treated in the
program. Upon the request of the community program director or a
designee, a peace officer shall take the parolee into custody and
transport the parolee, or cause the parolee to be taken into custody
and transported, to a facility designated by the community program
director, or a designee, for confinement under this section. Within
15 days after placement in a secure facility the State Department of
State Hospitals shall conduct a hearing on whether the parolee can be
safely and effectively treated in the program unless the patient or
the patient's attorney agrees to a continuance, or unless good cause
exists that prevents the State Department of State Hospitals from
conducting the hearing within that period of time. If good cause
exists, the hearing shall be held within 21 days after placement in a
secure facility. For purposes of this section, "good cause" means
the inability to secure counsel, an interpreter, or witnesses for the
hearing within the 15-day time period. Before deciding to seek
revocation of the parole of a parolee receiving mental health
treatment pursuant to Section 2962, and return him or her to prison,
the parole officer shall consult with the director of the parolee's
outpatient program. Nothing in this section shall prevent
hospitalization pursuant to Section 5150, 5250, or 5353 of the
Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (b) If the State Department of State Hospitals has not placed a
parolee on outpatient treatment within 60 days after receiving
custody of the parolee or after parole is continued pursuant to
Section 3001, the parolee may request a hearing before the Board of
Parole Hearings, and the board shall conduct a hearing to determine
whether the prisoner shall be treated as an inpatient or an
outpatient. At the hearing, the burden shall be on the State
Department of State Hospitals to establish that the prisoner requires
inpatient treatment as described in this subdivision. If the
prisoner or any person appearing on his or her behalf at the hearing
requests it, the board shall appoint two independent professionals as
provided for in Section 2978.
  SEC. 38.  Section 2968 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2968.  If the prisoner's severe mental disorder is put into
remission during the parole period, and can be kept in remission, the
Director of State Hospitals shall notify the Board of Parole
Hearings and the State Department of State Hospitals shall
discontinue treating the parolee.
  SEC. 39.  Section 2970 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2970.  Not later than 180 days prior to the termination of parole,
or release from prison if the prisoner refused to agree to treatment
as a condition of parole as required by Section 2962, unless good
cause is shown for the reduction of that 180-day period, if the
prisoner's severe mental disorder is not in remission or cannot be
kept in remission without treatment, the medical director of the
state hospital which is treating the parolee, or the community
program director in charge of the parolee's outpatient program, or
the Secretary of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation,
shall submit to the district attorney of the county in which the
parolee is receiving outpatient treatment, or for those in prison or
in a state mental hospital, the district attorney of the county of
commitment, his or her written evaluation on remission. If requested
by the district attorney, the written evaluation shall be accompanied
by supporting affidavits.
   The district attorney may then file a petition with the superior
court for continued involuntary treatment for one year. The petition
shall be accompanied by affidavits specifying that treatment, while
the prisoner was released from prison on parole, has been
continuously provided by the State Department of State Hospitals
either in a state hospital or in an outpatient program. The petition
shall also specify that the prisoner has a severe mental disorder,
that the severe mental disorder is not in remission or cannot be kept
in remission if the person's treatment is not continued, and that,
by reason of his or her severe mental disorder, the prisoner
represents a substantial danger of physical harm to others.
  SEC. 40.  Section 2972 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2972.  (a) The court shall conduct a hearing on the petition under
Section 2970 for continued treatment. The court shall advise the
person of his or her right to be represented by an attorney and of
the right to a jury trial. The attorney for the person shall be given
a copy of the petition, and any supporting documents. The hearing
shall be a civil hearing, however, in order to reduce costs the rules
of criminal discovery, as well as civil discovery, shall be
applicable.
   The standard of proof under this section shall be proof beyond a
reasonable doubt, and if the trial is by jury, the jury shall be
unanimous in its verdict. The trial shall be by jury unless waived by
both the person and the district attorney. The trial shall commence
no later than 30 calendar days prior to the time the person would
otherwise have been released, unless the time is waived by the person
or unless good cause is shown.
   (b) The people shall be represented by the district attorney. If
the person is indigent, the county public defender shall be
appointed.
   (c) If the court or jury finds that the patient has a severe
mental disorder, that the patient's severe mental disorder is not in
remission or cannot be kept in remission without treatment, and that
by reason of his or her severe mental disorder, the patient
represents a substantial danger of physical harm to others, the court
shall order the patient recommitted to the facility in which the
patient was confined at the time the petition was filed, or
recommitted to the outpatient program in which he or she was being
treated at the time the petition was filed, or committed to the State
Department of State Hospitals if the person was in prison. The
commitment shall be for a period of one year from the date of
termination of parole or a previous commitment or the scheduled date
of release from prison as specified in Section 2970. Time spent on
outpatient status, except when placed in a locked facility at the
direction of the outpatient supervisor, shall not count as actual
custody and shall not be credited toward the person's maximum term of
commitment or toward the person's term of extended commitment.
   (d) A person shall be released on outpatient status if the
committing court finds that there is reasonable cause to believe that
the committed person can be safely and effectively treated on an
outpatient basis. Except as provided in this subdivision, the
provisions of Title 15 (commencing with Section 1600) of Part 2,
shall apply to persons placed on outpatient status pursuant to this
paragraph. The standard for revocation under Section
                                 1609 shall be that the person cannot
be safely and effectively treated on an outpatient basis.
   (e) Prior to the termination of a commitment under this section, a
petition for recommitment may be filed to determine whether the
patient's severe mental disorder is not in remission or cannot be
kept in remission without treatment, and whether by reason of his or
her severe mental disorder, the patient represents a substantial
danger of physical harm to others. The recommitment proceeding shall
be conducted in accordance with the provisions of this section.
   (f) Any commitment under this article places an affirmative
obligation on the treatment facility to provide treatment for the
underlying causes of the person's mental disorder.
   (g) Except as provided in this subdivision, the person committed
shall be considered to be an involuntary mental health patient and he
or she shall be entitled to those rights set forth in Article 7
(commencing with Section 5325) of Chapter 2 of Part 1 of Division 5
of the Welfare and Institutions Code. Commencing January 1, 1986, the
State Department of Mental Health, or its successor, the State
Department of State Hospitals, may adopt regulations to modify those
rights as is necessary in order to provide for the reasonable
security of the inpatient facility in which the patient is being
held. This subdivision and the regulations adopted pursuant thereto
shall become operative on January 1, 1987, except that regulations
may be adopted prior to that date.
  SEC. 41.  Section 2976 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2976.  (a) The cost of inpatient or outpatient treatment under
Section 2962 or 2972 shall be a state expense while the person is
under the jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation or the State Department of State Hospitals.
   (b) Any person placed outside of a facility of the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation for the purposes of inpatient
treatment under this article shall not be deemed to be released from
imprisonment or from the custody of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation prior to the expiration of the maximum term of
imprisonment of the person.
  SEC. 42.  Section 2978 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   2978.  (a) Any independent professionals appointed by the Board of
Parole Hearings for purposes of this article shall not be state
government employees; shall have at least five years of experience in
the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders; and shall include
psychiatrists, and licensed psychologists who have a doctoral degree
in psychology.
   (b) On July 1 of each year the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation and the State Department of State Hospitals shall
submit to the Board of Parole Hearings a list of 20 or more
independent professionals on which both departments concur. The
professionals shall not be state government employees and shall have
at least five years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of
mental disorders and shall include psychiatrists and licensed
psychologists who have a doctoral degree in psychology. For purposes
of this article, when the Board of Parole Hearings receives the list,
it shall only appoint independent professionals from the list. The
list shall not be binding on the Board of Parole Hearings until it
has received the list, and shall not be binding after June 30
following receipt of the list.
  SEC. 43.  Section 3000 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   3000.  (a) (1) The Legislature finds and declares that the period
immediately following incarceration is critical to successful
reintegration of the offender into society and to positive
citizenship. It is in the interest of public safety for the state to
provide for the effective supervision of and surveillance of
parolees, including the judicious use of revocation actions, and to
provide educational, vocational, family and personal counseling
necessary to assist parolees in the transition between imprisonment
and discharge. A sentence resulting in imprisonment in the state
prison pursuant to Section 1168 or 1170 shall include a period of
parole supervision or postrelease community supervision, unless
waived, or as otherwise provided in this article.
   (2) The Legislature finds and declares that it is not the intent
of this section to diminish resources allocated to the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation for parole functions for which the
department is responsible. It is also not the intent of this section
to diminish the resources allocated to the Board of Parole Hearings
to execute its duties with respect to parole functions for which the
board is responsible.
   (3) The Legislature finds and declares that diligent effort must
be made to ensure that parolees are held accountable for their
criminal behavior, including, but not limited to, the satisfaction of
restitution fines and orders.
   (4) For any person subject to a sexually violent predator
proceeding pursuant to Article 4 (commencing with Section 6600) of
Chapter 2 of Part 2 of Division 6 of the Welfare and Institutions
Code, an order issued by a judge pursuant to Section 6601.5 of the
Welfare and Institutions Code, finding that the petition, on its
face, supports a finding of probable cause to believe that the
individual named in the petition is likely to engage in sexually
violent predatory criminal behavior upon his or her release, shall
toll the period of parole of that person, from the date that person
is released by the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation as
follows:
   (A) If the person is committed to the State Department of State
Hospitals as a sexually violent predator and subsequently a court
orders that the person be unconditionally discharged, the parole
period shall be tolled until the date the judge enters the order
unconditionally discharging that person.
   (B) If the person is not committed to the State Department of
State Hospitals as a sexually violent predator, the tolling of the
parole period shall be abrogated and the parole period shall be
deemed to have commenced on the date of release from the Department
of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
   (5) Paragraph (4) applies to persons released by the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation on or after January 1, 2012. Persons
released by the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation prior to
January 1, 2012, shall continue to be subject to the law governing
the tolling of parole in effect on December 31, 2011.
   (b) Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in Article 3
(commencing with Section 3040) of this chapter, the following shall
apply to any inmate subject to Section 3000.08:
   (1) In the case of any inmate sentenced under Section 1168, the
period of parole shall not exceed five years in the case of an inmate
imprisoned for any offense other than first or second degree murder
for which the inmate has received a life sentence, and shall not
exceed three years in the case of any other inmate, unless in either
case the parole authority for good cause waives parole and discharges
the inmate from custody of the department. This subdivision shall
also be applicable to inmates who committed crimes prior to July 1,
1977, to the extent specified in Section 1170.2.
   (2) At the expiration of a term of imprisonment of one year and
one day, or a term of imprisonment imposed pursuant to Section 1170
or at the expiration of a term reduced pursuant to Section 2931 or
2933, if applicable, the inmate shall be released on parole for a
period not exceeding three years, except that any inmate sentenced
for an offense specified in paragraph (3), (4), (5), (6), (11), or
(18) of subdivision (c) of Section 667.5 shall be released on parole
for a period not exceeding 10 years, unless a longer period of parole
is specified in Section 3000.1.
   (3) Notwithstanding paragraphs (1) and (2), in the case of any
offense for which the inmate has received a life sentence pursuant to
subdivision (b) of Section 209, with the intent to commit a
specified sex offense, or Section 667.51, 667.61, or 667.71, the
period of parole shall be 10 years, unless a longer period of parole
is specified in Section 3000.1.
   (4) (A) Notwithstanding paragraphs (1) to (3), inclusive, in the
case of a person convicted of and required to register as a sex
offender for the commission of an offense specified in Section 261,
262, 264.1, 286, 288a, paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section
288, Section 288.5, or 289, in which one or more of the victims of
the offense was a child under 14 years of age, the period of parole
shall be 20 years and six months unless the board, for good cause,
determines that the person will be retained on parole. The board
shall make a written record of this determination and transmit a copy
of it to the parolee.
   (B) In the event of a retention on parole, the parolee shall be
entitled to a review by the board each year thereafter.
   (C) There shall be a board hearing consistent with the procedures
set forth in Sections 3041.5 and 3041.7 within 12 months of the date
of any order returning the parolee to custody to consider the release
of the inmate on parole, and notwithstanding the provisions of
paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of Section 3041.5, there shall be
annual parole consideration hearings thereafter, unless the person is
released or otherwise ineligible for parole release. The panel or
board shall release the person within one year of the date of the
revocation unless it determines that the circumstances and gravity of
the parole violation are such that consideration of the public
safety requires a more lengthy period of incarceration or unless
there is a new prison commitment following a conviction.
   (D) The provisions of Section 3042 shall not apply to any hearing
held pursuant to this subdivision.
   (5) The parole authority shall consider the request of any inmate
regarding the length of his or her parole and the conditions thereof.

   (6) Upon successful completion of parole, or at the end of the
maximum statutory period of parole specified for the inmate under
paragraph (1), (2), (3), or (4), as the case may be, whichever is
earlier, the inmate shall be discharged from custody. The date of the
maximum statutory period of parole under this subdivision and
paragraphs (1), (2), (3), and (4) shall be computed from the date of
initial parole and shall be a period chronologically determined. Time
during which parole is suspended because the prisoner has absconded
or has been returned to custody as a parole violator shall not be
credited toward any period of parole unless the prisoner is found not
guilty of the parole violation. However, the period of parole is
subject to the following:
   (A) Except as provided in Section 3064, in no case may a prisoner
subject to three years on parole be retained under parole supervision
or in custody for a period longer than four years from the date of
his or her initial parole.
   (B) Except as provided in Section 3064, in no case may a prisoner
subject to five years on parole be retained under parole supervision
or in custody for a period longer than seven years from the date of
his or her initial parole.
   (C) Except as provided in Section 3064, in no case may a prisoner
subject to 10 years on parole be retained under parole supervision or
in custody for a period longer than 15 years from the date of his or
her initial parole.
   (7) The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall meet
with each inmate at least 30 days prior to his or her good time
release date and shall provide, under guidelines specified by the
parole authority or the department, whichever is applicable, the
conditions of parole and the length of parole up to the maximum
period of time provided by law. The inmate has the right to
reconsideration of the length of parole and conditions thereof by the
department or the parole authority, whichever is applicable. The
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation or the board may impose
as a condition of parole that a prisoner make payments on the
prisoner's outstanding restitution fines or orders imposed pursuant
to subdivision (a) or (c) of Section 13967 of the Government Code, as
operative prior to September 28, 1994, or subdivision (b) or (f) of
Section 1202.4.
   (8) For purposes of this chapter, the board shall be considered
the parole authority.
   (9) The sole authority to issue warrants for the return to actual
custody of any state prisoner released on parole rests with the
board, except for any escaped state prisoner or any state prisoner
released prior to his or her scheduled release date who should be
returned to custody, and Section 3060 shall apply.
   (10) It is the intent of the Legislature that efforts be made with
respect to persons who are subject to Section 290.011 who are on
parole to engage them in treatment.
  SEC. 44.  Section 3000.08 of the Penal Code, as amended by Section
17 of Chapter 12 of the First Extraordinary Session of the Statutes
of 2011, is amended to read:

supervision pursuant to Title 2.05 (commencing with Section 3450).
   (c) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), any of the following persons
released from state prison shall be subject to the jurisdiction of,
and parole supervision by, the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation for a period of parole up to three years or the parole
term the person was subject to at the time of the commission of the
offense, whichever is greater:
   (1) The person is required to register as a sex offender pursuant
to Chapter 5.5 (commencing with Section 290) of Title 9 of Part 1,
and was subject to a period of parole exceeding three years at the
time he or she committed a felony for which they were convicted and
subsequently sentenced to state prison.
   (2) The person was subject to parole for life pursuant to Section
3000.1 at the time of the commission of the offense that resulted in
a conviction and state prison sentence.
   (d) Except as described in subdivision (c), any person who is
convicted of a felony that requires community supervision and who
still has a period of state parole to serve shall discharge from
state parole at the time of release to community supervision.
   (e) This section shall be operative only until July 1, 2013, and
as of January 1, 2014, is repealed, unless a later enacted statute,
that is enacted before January 1, 2014, deletes or extends that date.

  SEC. 45.  Section 3000.08 of the Penal Code, as amended by Section
18 of Chapter 12 of the First Extraordinary Session of the Statutes
of 2011, is amended to read:
   3000.08.  (a) Persons released from state prison prior to or on or
after July 1, 2013, after serving a prison term or, whose sentence
has been deemed served pursuant to Section 2900.5, for any of the
following crimes shall be subject to parole supervision by the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the jurisdiction of
the court in the county where the parolee is released or resides for

   (3) A crime for which the person was sentenced pursuant to
paragraph (2) of subdivision (e) of Section 667 or paragraph (2) of

   (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, all other
offenders released from prison shall be placed on postrelease
supervision pursuant to Title 2.05 (commencing with Section 3450).
   (c) At any time during the period of parole of a person subject to
this section, if any parole agent or peace officer has probable
cause to believe that the parolee is violating any term or condition
of his or her parole, the agent or officer may, without warrant or
other process and at any time until the final disposition of the
case, arrest the person and bring him or her before the parole
authority, or the parole authority may, in its discretion, issue a
warrant for that person's arrest.
   (d) Upon review of the alleged violation and a finding of good
cause that the parolee has committed a violation of law or violated
his or her conditions of parole, the parole authority may impose
additional and appropriate conditions of supervision, including
rehabilitation and treatment services and appropriate incentives for
compliance, and impose immediate, structured, and intermediate
sanctions for parole violations, including flash incarceration in a
county jail. Periods of "flash incarceration," as defined in
subdivision (e) are encouraged as one method of punishment for
violations of a parolee's conditions of parole. Nothing in this
section is intended to preclude referrals to a reentry court pursuant
to Section 3015.
   (e) "Flash incarceration" is a period of detention in county jail
due to a violation of a parolee's conditions of parole. The length of
the detention period can range between one and 10 consecutive days.
Shorter, but if necessary more frequent, periods of detention for
violations of a parolee's conditions of parole shall appropriately
punish a parolee while preventing the disruption in a work or home
establishment that typically arises from longer periods of detention.

   (f) If the supervising parole agency has determined, following
application of its assessment processes, that intermediate sanctions
up to and including flash incarceration are not appropriate, the
supervising agency shall petition the revocation hearing officer
appointed pursuant to Section 71622.5 of the Government Code in the
county in which the parolee is being supervised to revoke parole. At
any point during the process initiated pursuant to this section, a
parolee may waive, in writing, his or her right to counsel, admit the
parole violation, waive a court hearing, and accept the proposed
parole modification. The petition shall include a written report that
contains additional information regarding the petition, including
the relevant terms and conditions of parole, the circumstances of the
alleged underlying violation, the history and background of the
parolee, and any recommendations. The Judicial Council shall adopt
forms and rules of court to establish uniform statewide procedures to
implement this subdivision, including the minimum contents of
supervision agency reports. Upon a finding that the person has
violated the conditions of parole, the revocation hearing officer
shall have authority to do any of the following:
   (1) Return the person to parole supervision with modifications of
conditions, if appropriate, including a period of incarceration in
county jail.
   (2) Revoke parole and order the person to confinement in the
county jail.
   (3) Refer the person to a reentry court pursuant to Section 3015
or other evidence-based program in the court's discretion.
   (g) Confinement pursuant to paragraphs (1) and (2) of subdivision
(f) shall not exceed a period of 180 days in the county jail.
   (h) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, in any case where
Section 3000.1 applies to a person who is on parole and there is good
cause to believe that the person has committed a violation of law or
violated his or her conditions of parole, and there is imposed a
period of imprisonment of longer than 30 days, that person shall be
remanded to the custody of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation and the jurisdiction of the Board of Parole Hearings
for the purpose of future parole consideration.
   (i) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), any of the following persons
released from state prison shall be subject to the jurisdiction of,
and parole supervision by, the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation for a period of parole up to three years or the parole
term the person was subject to at the time of the commission of the
offense, whichever is greater:
   (1) The person is required to register as a sex offender pursuant
to Chapter 5.5 (commencing with Section 290) of Title 9 of Part 1,
and was subject to a period of parole exceeding three years at the
time he or she committed a felony for which they were convicted and
subsequently sentenced to state prison.
   (2) The person was subject to parole for life pursuant to Section
3000.1 at the time of the commission of the offense that resulted in
a conviction and state prison sentence.
   (j) Parolees subject to this section who are being held for a
parole violation in a county jail on July 1, 2013, shall be subject
to the jurisdiction of the Board of Parole Hearings.
   (k) Except as described in subdivision (c), any person who is
convicted of a felony that requires community supervision and who
still has a period of state parole to serve shall discharge from
state parole at the time of release to community supervision.
   (l) This section shall become operative on July 1, 2013.
  SEC. 46.  Section 3058.8 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   3058.8.  (a) At the time a notification is sent pursuant to
subdivision (a) of Section 3058.6, the Board of Parole Hearings or
the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, or the designated
agency responsible for notification, as the case may be, shall also
notify persons described in Section 679.03 who have requested a
notice informing those persons of the fact that the person who
committed the violent offense is scheduled to be released from the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation or from the State
Department of State Hospitals, including, but not limited to,
conditional release, and specifying the proposed date of release.
Notice of the community in which the person is scheduled to reside
shall also be given if it is (1) in the county of residence of a
witness, victim, or family member of a victim who has requested
notification, or (2) within 100 miles of the actual residence of a
witness, victim, or family member of a victim who has requested
notification. If, after providing the witness, victim, or next of kin
with the notice, there is any change in the release date or the
community in which the person is to reside, the board or department
shall provide the witness, victim, or next of kin with the revised
information.
   (b) In order to be entitled to receive the notice set forth in
this section, the requesting party shall keep the department or board
informed of his or her current contact information.
   (c) The board or department, when sending out notices regarding an
offender's release on parole, shall use the information provided by
the requesting party pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 679.03,
unless that information is no longer current. If the information is
no longer current, the department shall make a reasonable attempt to
contact the person and to notify him or her of the impending release.

  SEC. 47.  Section 3072 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   3072.  (a) The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation,
subject to the legislative appropriation of the necessary funds, may
establish and operate, after January 1, 2007, a specialized sex
offender treatment pilot program for inmates whom the department
determines pose a high risk to the public of committing violent sex
crimes.
   (b) (1) The program shall be based upon the relapse prevention
model and shall include referral to specialized services, such as
substance abuse treatment, for offenders needing those specialized
services.
   (2) Except as otherwise required under Section 645, the department
may provide medication treatments for selected offenders, as
determined by medical protocols, and only on a voluntary basis and
with the offender's informed consent.
   (c) (1) The program shall be targeted primarily at adult sex
offenders who meet the following conditions:
   (A) The offender is within five years of being released on parole.
An inmate serving a life term may be excluded from treatment until
he or she receives a parole date and is within five years of that
parole date, unless the department determines that the treatment is
necessary for the public safety.
   (B) The offender has been clinically assessed.
   (C) A review of the offender's criminal history indicates that the
offender poses a high risk of committing new sex offenses upon his
or her release on parole.
   (D) Based upon the clinical assessment, the offender may be
amenable to treatment.
   (2) The department may include other appropriate offenders in the
treatment program if doing so facilitates the effectiveness of the
treatment program.
   (3) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, inmates who are
condemned to death or sentenced to life without the possibility of
parole are ineligible to participate in treatment.
   (d) The program under this section shall be established with the
assistance and supervision of the staff of the department primarily
by obtaining the services of specially trained sex offender treatment
providers, as determined by the secretary of the department and the
Director of State Hospitals.
   (e) (1) The program under this section, upon full implementation,
shall provide for the treatment of inmates who are deemed to pose a
high risk to the public of committing sex crimes, as determined by
the State-Authorized Risk Assessment Tool for Sex Offenders, pursuant
to Sections 290.04 to 290.06, inclusive.
   (2) To the maximum extent that is practical and feasible,
offenders participating in the treatment program shall be held in a
separate area of the prison facility, segregated from any non-sex
offenders held                                            at the same
prison, and treatment in the pilot program shall be provided in
program space segregated, to the maximum extent that is practical and
feasible, from program space for any non-sex offenders held at the
same prison.
   (f) (1) The State Department of Mental Health, or its successor,
the State Department of State Hospitals, by January 1, 2012, shall
provide a report evaluating the program to the fiscal and public
safety policy committees of both houses of the Legislature, and to
the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.
   (2) The report shall initially evaluate whether the program under
this section is operating effectively, is having a positive clinical
effect on participating sex offenders, and is cost effective for the
state.
   (3) In conducting its evaluation, the State Department of Mental
Health, or its successor, the State Department of State Hospitals,
shall consider the effects of treatment of offenders while in prison
and while subsequently on parole.
   (4) The State Department of Mental Health, or its successor, the
State Department of State Hospitals, shall advise the Legislature as
to whether the program should be continued past its expiration date,
expanded, or concluded.
  SEC. 48.  Section 3451 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   3451.  (a) Notwithstanding any other law and except for persons

serving a prison term for a felony shall, upon release from prison
and for a period not exceeding three years immediately following
release, be subject to community supervision provided by a county

to, supervision policies, procedures, programs, and practices
demonstrated by scientific research to reduce recidivism among
individuals under postrelease supervision.
   (b) This section shall not apply to any person released from
prison after having served a prison term for any of the following:
   (1) A serious felony described in subdivision (c) of Section

a term of parole for a felony offense who are subject to this
section of the requirements of this title and of his or her
responsibility to report to the county agency responsible for serving
that parolee. Thirty days prior to the release of any person subject
to postrelease supervision by a county, the department shall notify
the county of all information that would otherwise be required for
parolees under subdivision (e) of Section 3003.
  SEC. 49.  Section 5021 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   5021.  (a) Any death that occurs in any facility operated by the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the State Department of
State Hospitals, a city, county, or city and county, including
county juvenile facilities, or any facility which is under contract
with any of these entities for the incarceration, rehabilitation,
holding, or treatment of persons accused or convicted of crimes,
shall be reported within a reasonable time, not to exceed two hours,
of its discovery by authorities in the facility to the county
sheriff, or his or her designated representative, and to the coroner'
s office, of the county in which the facility is located, as provided
in Section 27491 of the Government Code. These deaths shall also be
reported to the district attorney, or his or her designated
representative, of the county in which the facility is located as
soon as a representative of the district attorney's office is on
duty. If the facility is located within the city limits of an
incorporated city, the report shall also be made to the chief of
police in that city, or to his or her designated representative,
within a reasonable time, not to exceed two hours, of its discovery.
   Any death of a person in a facility operated by the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation shall also be reported to the Chief of
Medical Services in the Central Office of the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation, or his or her designated
representative, as soon as a representative of that office is on
duty.

by written notification, and shall outline all pertinent facts known
at the time the report is made and all persons to contact, in
addition to any other information the reporting person or officer
deems pertinent.
   (c) The initial report of the death of a person as required in
subdivision (a) shall be supplemented by a written report, which
shall be submitted to the entities listed in subdivision (a) within
eight hours of the discovery of the death. This written report shall
include all circumstances and details of the death that were known at

  SEC. 50.  Section 5024 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   5024.  (a) The Legislature finds and declares that:
   (1) State costs for purchasing drugs and medical supplies for the
health care of offenders in state custody have grown rapidly in
recent years and will amount to almost seventy-five million dollars
($75,000,000) annually in the 1999-2000 fiscal year.
   (2) The Bureau of State Audits found in a January 2000 audit
report that the state could save millions of dollars annually by
improving its current processes for the procurement of drugs for
inmate health care and by pursuing alternative procurement methods.
   (3) It is the intent of the Legislature that the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation, in cooperation with the Department of
General Services and other appropriate state agencies, take prompt
action to adopt cost-effective reforms in its drug and medical supply
procurement processes by establishing a program to obtain rebates
from drug manufacturers, implementing alternative contracting and
procurement reforms, or by some combination of these steps.
   (b) (1) The Secretary of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation, pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act, Chapter
3.5 (commencing with Section 11340) of Part 1 of Division 3 of Title
2 of the Government Code, may adopt regulations requiring
manufacturers of drugs to pay the department a rebate for the
purchase of drugs for offenders in state custody that is at least
equal to the rebate that would be applicable to the drug under
Section 1927(c) of the federal Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. Sec.
1396r-8(c)). Any such regulation shall, at a minimum, specify the
procedures for notifying drug manufacturers of the rebate
requirements and for collecting rebate payments.
   (2) If a rebate program is implemented, the secretary shall
develop, maintain, and update as necessary a list of drugs to be
provided under the rebate program, and establish a rate structure for
reimbursement of each drug included in the rebate program. Rates
shall not be less than the actual cost of the drug. However, the
secretary may purchase a listed drug directly from the manufacturer
and negotiate the most favorable bulk price for that drug. In order
to minimize state administrative costs and maximize state benefits
for the rebate program, the secretary may establish a program that
focuses upon obtaining rebates for those drugs that it determines are
purchased by the department in relatively large volumes.
   (3) If a rebate program is implemented, the department shall
submit an invoice, not less than two times per year, to each
manufacturer for the amount of the rebate required by this
subdivision. Drugs may be removed from the list for failure to pay
the rebate required by this subdivision, unless the department
determines that purchase of the drug is a medical necessity or that
purchase of the drug is necessary to comply with a court order to
ensure the appropriate provision of quality health care to offenders
in state custody.
   (4) In order to minimize state administrative costs and maximize
state benefits for such a rebate program, if one is implemented, the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation may enter into
interagency agreements with the Department of General Services, the

flexibility in planning the use of these resources, which includes
making full use of existing facilities and that the Director of State
Hospitals enforce his or her exemption authority in a manner
consistent with this intent. Because freed-up beds may be purchased
by other counties or may be used for other purposes, it is
anticipated that individual county flexibility will be substantially
greater than the 10-percent figure described in subdivisions (a) and
(b).
   (g) Counties may annually contract for state hospital beds as
single entities or in combination with other counties. For purposes
of this section, small counties, as defined in subdivision (e):
   (1) Are encouraged to establish regional authorities to pool their
resources to assure their ability to provide the necessary array of
services to their mentally ill populations not otherwise available to
them on an individual basis.
   (2) May receive loans from the General Fund when emergency state
hospital beds are needed, not to exceed one year in duration, with
interest payable at the same rate as that earned through the Pooled
Money Investment Fund. Any interest due may be waived based upon a
finding of emergency by the Secretary of California Health and Human
Services and the Director of Finance.

provided by the department pursuant to subdivision (a), costs shall
be based on the actual costs to the state, and shall be prorated on

constituting the primary user of a particular hospital may, upon
their request individually, or through selected representatives,
participate in long-range planning and program development to ensure
the provision of appropriate services.

amended to read:
   4335.  Nothing in this chapter is intended to prevent the

administered by the department under this chapter to provide these
services shall be known as the Forensic Conditional Release Program
and may be used by the department in accordance with this section to
provide services in the community to other patient populations for
which the department has direct responsibility.
   (b) The State Department of State Hospitals may provide directly,
or through contract with private providers or counties, for these
services, including administrative and ancillary services related to
the provision of direct services. These contracts shall be exempt
from the requirements contained in the Public Contract Code and the
State Administrative Manual, and from approval by the Department of
General Services. Subject to approval by the State Department of
State Hospitals, a county or private provider under contract to the
department to provide these services may subcontract with private
providers for those services.
   (c) Notwithstanding Section 5328, programs providing services

State Hospitals in consultation with the Department of Corrections
and Rehabilitation. If as a result of this screening it is determined
that the person is likely to be a sexually violent predator, the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation shall refer the person
to the State Department of State Hospitals for a full evaluation of
whether the person meets the criteria in Section 6600.
   (c) The State Department of State Hospitals shall evaluate the
person in accordance with a standardized assessment protocol,
developed and updated by the State Department of State Hospitals, to
determine whether the person is a sexually violent predator as
defined in this article. The standardized assessment protocol shall
require assessment of diagnosable mental disorders, as well as
various factors known to be associated with the risk of reoffense
among sex offenders. Risk factors to be considered shall include
criminal and psychosexual history, type, degree, and duration of
sexual deviance, and severity of mental disorder.
   (d) Pursuant to subdivision (c), the person shall be evaluated by
two practicing psychiatrists or psychologists, or one practicing
psychiatrist and one practicing psychologist, designated by the
Director of State Hospitals, one or both of whom may be independent
professionals as defined in subdivision (g). If both evaluators
concur that the person has a diagnosed mental disorder so that he or
she is likely to engage in acts of sexual violence without
appropriate treatment and custody, the Director of State Hospitals
shall forward a request for a petition for commitment under Section
6602 to the county designated in subdivision (i). Copies of the
evaluation reports and any other supporting documents shall be made
available to the attorney designated by the county pursuant to
subdivision (i) who may file a petition for commitment.
   (e) If one of the professionals performing the evaluation pursuant
to subdivision (d) does not concur that the person meets the
criteria specified in subdivision (d), but the other professional
concludes that the person meets those criteria, the Director of State
Hospitals shall arrange for further examination of the person by two
independent professionals selected in accordance with subdivision
(g).
   (f) If an examination by independent professionals pursuant to
subdivision (e) is conducted, a petition to request commitment under
this article shall only be filed if both independent professionals
who evaluate the person pursuant to subdivision (e) concur that the
person meets the criteria for commitment specified in subdivision
(d). The professionals selected to evaluate the person pursuant to
subdivision (g) shall inform the person that the purpose of their
examination is not treatment but to determine if the person meets
certain criteria to be involuntarily committed pursuant to this
article. It is not required that the person appreciate or understand
that information.
   (g) Any independent professional who is designated by the
Secretary of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation or the
Director of State Hospitals for purposes of this section shall not be
a state government employee, shall have at least five years of
experience in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders, and
shall include psychiatrists and licensed psychologists who have a
doctoral degree in psychology. The requirements set forth in this
section also shall apply to any professionals appointed by the court
to evaluate the person for purposes of any other proceedings under
this article.
   (h) If the State Department of State Hospitals determines that the
person is a sexually violent predator as defined in this article,
the Director of State Hospitals shall forward a request for a
petition to be filed for commitment under this article to the county
designated in subdivision (i). Copies of the evaluation reports and
any other supporting documents shall be made available to the
attorney designated by the county pursuant to subdivision (i) who may
file a petition for commitment in the superior court.
   (i) If the county's designated counsel concurs with the
recommendation, a petition for commitment shall be filed in the
superior court of the county in which the person was convicted of the
offense for which he or she was committed to the jurisdiction of the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The petition shall be
filed, and the proceedings shall be handled, by either the district
attorney or the county counsel of that county. The county board of
supervisors shall designate either the district attorney or the
county counsel to assume responsibility for proceedings under this
article.
   (j) The time limits set forth in this section shall not apply
during the first year that this article is operative.
   (k) An order issued by a judge pursuant to Section 6601.5, finding
that the petition, on its face, supports a finding of probable cause
to believe that the individual named in the petition is likely to
engage in sexually violent predatory criminal behavior upon his or
her release, shall toll that person's parole pursuant to paragraph
(4) of subdivision (a) of Section 3000 of the Penal Code, if that
individual is determined to be a sexually violent predator.
   (l) Pursuant to subdivision (d), the attorney designated by the
county pursuant to subdivision (i) shall notify the State Department
of State Hospitals of its decision regarding the filing of a petition
for commitment within 15 days of making that decision.
   (m) (1) The department shall provide the fiscal and policy
committees of the Legislature, including the Chairperson of the Joint
Legislative Budget Committee, and the Department of Finance, with a
semiannual update on the progress made to hire qualified state
employees to conduct the evaluation required pursuant to subdivision
(d). The first update shall be provided no later than July 10, 2009.
   (2) On or before January 2, 2010, the department shall report to
the Legislature on all of the following:

department for commitment to the program as a result of the expanded
evaluation and commitment criteria in Jessica's Law.
   (C) The number and proportion of those inmates who have actually
been committed for treatment in the program.
   (3) This section shall remain in effect and be repealed on the
date that the director executes a declaration, which shall be
provided to the fiscal and policy committees of the Legislature,
including the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee,
and the Department of Finance, specifying that sufficient qualified
state employees have been hired to conduct the evaluations required
pursuant to subdivision (d), or January 1, 2013, whichever occurs
first.

custody for no more than 45 days beyond the person's scheduled
release date for full evaluation pursuant to subdivisions (c) to (i),
inclusive, of Section 6601.
   (b) For purposes of this section, good cause means circumstances
where there is a recalculation of credits or a restoration of denied
or lost credits, a resentencing by a court, the receipt of the
prisoner into custody, or equivalent exigent circumstances which
result in there being less than 45 days prior to the person's
scheduled release date for the full evaluation described in
subdivisions (c) to (i), inclusive, of Section 6601.
  SEC. 141.  Section 6602 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   6602.  (a) A judge of the superior court shall review the petition
and shall determine whether there is probable cause to believe that
the individual named in the petition is likely to engage in sexually
violent predatory criminal behavior upon his or her release. The
person named in the petition shall be entitled to assistance of
counsel at the probable cause hearing. Upon the commencement of the
probable cause hearing, the person shall remain in custody pending
the completion of the probable cause hearing. If the judge determines
there is not probable cause, he or she shall dismiss the petition
and any person subject to parole shall report to parole. If the judge
determines that there is probable cause, the judge shall order that
the person remain in custody in a secure facility until a trial is
completed and shall order that a trial be conducted to determine
whether the person is, by reason of a diagnosed mental disorder, a
danger to the health and safety of others in that the person is
likely to engage in acts of sexual violence upon his or her release
from the jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation or other secure facility.
   (b) The probable cause hearing shall not be continued except upon
a showing of good cause by the party requesting the continuance.
   (c) The court shall notify the State Department of State Hospitals
of the outcome of the probable cause hearing by forwarding to the
department a copy of the minute order of the court within 15 days of
the decision.
  SEC. 142.  Section 6602.5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   6602.5.  (a) No person may be placed in a state hospital pursuant
to the provisions of this article until there has been a
determination pursuant to Section 6601.3 or 6602 that there is
probable cause to believe that the individual named in the petition
is likely to engage in sexually violent predatory criminal behavior.
   (b) The State Department of State Hospitals shall identify each
person for whom a petition pursuant to this article has been filed
who is in a state hospital on or after January 1, 1998, and who has
not had a probable cause hearing pursuant to Section 6602. The State
Department of State Hospitals shall notify the court in which the
petition was filed that the person has not had a probable cause
hearing. Copies of the notice shall be provided by the court to the
attorneys of record in the case. Within 30 days of notice by the
State Department of State Hospitals, the court shall either order the
person removed from the state hospital and returned to local custody
or hold a probable cause hearing pursuant to Section 6602.
   (c) In no event shall the number of persons referred pursuant to
subdivision (b) to the superior court of any county exceed 10 in any
30-day period, except upon agreement of the presiding judge of the
superior court, the district attorney, the public defender, the
sheriff, and the Director of State Hospitals.
   (d) This section shall be implemented in Los Angeles County
pursuant to a letter of agreement between the Department of State
Hospitals, the Los Angeles County district attorney, the Los Angeles
County public defender, the Los Angeles County sheriff, and the Los
Angeles County Superior Court. The number of persons referred to the
Superior Court of Los Angeles County pursuant to subdivision (b)
shall be governed by the letter of agreement.
  SEC. 143.  Section 6604 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   6604.  The court or jury shall determine whether, beyond a
reasonable doubt, the person is a sexually violent predator. If the
court or jury is not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that the
person is a sexually violent predator, the court shall direct that
the person be released at the conclusion of the term for which he or
she was initially sentenced, or that the person be unconditionally
released at the end of parole, whichever is applicable. If the court
or jury determines that the person is a sexually violent predator,
the person shall be committed for an indeterminate term to the
custody of the State Department of State Hospitals for appropriate
treatment and confinement in a secure facility designated by the
Director of State Hospitals. The facility shall be located on the
grounds of an institution under the jurisdiction of the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation.
  SEC. 144.  Section 6605 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   6605.  (a) A person found to be a sexually violent predator and
committed to the custody of the State Department of State Hospitals
shall have a current examination of his or her mental condition made
at least once every year. The annual report shall include
consideration of whether the committed person currently meets the
definition of a sexually violent predator and whether conditional
release to a less restrictive alternative or an unconditional release
is in the best interest of the person and conditions can be imposed
that would adequately protect the community. The State Department of
State Hospitals shall file this periodic report with the court that
committed the person under this article. The report shall be in the
form of a declaration and shall be prepared by a professionally
qualified person. A copy of the report shall be served on the
prosecuting agency involved in the initial commitment and upon the
committed person. The person may retain, or if he or she is indigent
and so requests, the court may appoint, a qualified expert or
professional person to examine him or her, and the expert or
professional person shall have access to all records concerning the
person.
   (b) If the State Department of State Hospitals determines that
either: (1) the person's condition has so changed that the person no
longer meets the definition of a sexually violent predator, or (2)
conditional release to a less restrictive alternative is in the best
interest of the person and conditions can be imposed that adequately
protect the community, the director shall authorize the person to
petition the court for conditional release to a less restrictive
alternative or for an unconditional discharge. The petition shall be
filed with the court and served upon the prosecuting agency
responsible for the initial commitment. The court, upon receipt of
the petition for conditional release to a less restrictive
alternative or unconditional discharge, shall order a show cause
hearing at which the court can consider the petition and any
accompanying documentation provided by the medical director, the
prosecuting attorney, or the committed person.
   (c) If the court at the show cause hearing determines that
probable cause exists to believe that the committed person's
diagnosed mental disorder has so changed that he or she is not a
danger to the health and safety of others and is not likely to engage
in sexually violent criminal behavior if discharged, then the court
shall set a hearing on the issue.
   (d) At the hearing, the committed person shall have the right to
be present and shall be entitled to the benefit of all constitutional
protections that were afforded to him or her at the initial
commitment proceeding. The attorney designated by the county pursuant
to subdivision (i) of Section 6601 shall represent the state and
shall have the right to demand a jury trial and to have the committed
person evaluated by experts chosen by the state. The committed
person also shall have the right to demand a jury trial and to have
experts evaluate him or her on his or her behalf. The court shall
appoint an expert if the person is indigent and requests an
appointment. The burden of proof at the hearing shall be on the state
to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the committed person's
diagnosed mental disorder remains such that he or
                       she is a danger to the health and safety of
others and is likely to engage in sexually violent criminal behavior
if discharged. Where the person's failure to participate in or
complete treatment is relied upon as proof that the person's
condition has not changed, and there is evidence to support that
reliance, the jury shall be instructed substantially as follows:
   "The committed person's failure to participate in or complete the
State Department of State Hospitals Sex Offender Commitment Program
(SOCP) are facts that, if proved, may be considered as evidence that
the committed person's condition has not changed. The weight to be
given that evidence is a matter for the jury to determine."
   (e) If the court or jury rules against the committed person at the
hearing conducted pursuant to subdivision (d), the term of
commitment of the person shall run for an indeterminate period from
the date of this ruling. If the court or jury rules for the committed
person, he or she shall be unconditionally released and
unconditionally discharged.
   (f) In the event that the State Department of State Hospitals has
reason to believe that a person committed to it as a sexually violent
predator is no longer a sexually violent predator, it shall seek
judicial review of the person's commitment pursuant to the procedures
set forth in Section 7250 in the superior court from which the
commitment was made. If the superior court determines that the person
is no longer a sexually violent predator, he or she shall be
unconditionally released and unconditionally discharged.
  SEC. 145.  Section 6606 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   6606.  (a) A person who is committed under this article shall be
provided with programming by the State Department of State Hospitals
which shall afford the person with treatment for his or her diagnosed
mental disorder. Persons who decline treatment shall be offered the
opportunity to participate in treatment on at least a monthly basis.
   (b) Amenability to treatment is not required for a finding that
any person is a person described in Section 6600, nor is it required
for treatment of that person. Treatment does not mean that the
treatment be successful or potentially successful, nor does it mean
that the person must recognize his or her problem and willingly
participate in the treatment program.
   (c) The programming provided by the State Department of State
Hospitals in facilities shall be consistent with current
institutional standards for the treatment of sex offenders, and shall
be based on a structured treatment protocol developed by the State
Department of State Hospitals. The protocol shall describe the number
and types of treatment components that are provided in the program,
and shall specify how assessment data will be used to determine the
course of treatment for each individual offender. The protocol shall
also specify measures that will be used to assess treatment progress
and changes with respect to the individual's risk of reoffense.
   (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, except as to
requirements relating to fire and life safety of persons with mental
illness, and consistent with information and standards described in
subdivision (c), the State Department of State Hospitals is
authorized to provide the programming using an outpatient/day
treatment model, wherein treatment is provided by licensed
professional clinicians in living units not licensed as health
facility beds within a secure facility setting, on less than a
24-hour a day basis. The State Department of State Hospitals shall
take into consideration the unique characteristics, individual needs,
and choices of persons committed under this article, including
whether or not a person needs antipsychotic medication, whether or
not a person has physical medical conditions, and whether or not a
person chooses to participate in a specified course of offender
treatment. The State Department of State Hospitals shall ensure that
policies and procedures are in place that address changes in patient
needs, as well as patient choices, and respond to treatment needs in
a timely fashion. The State Department of State Hospitals, in
implementing this subdivision, shall be allowed by the State
Department of Public Health to place health facility beds at Coalinga
State Hospital in suspense in order to meet the mental health and
medical needs of the patient population. Coalinga State Hospital may
remove all or any portion of its voluntarily suspended beds into
active license status by request to the State Department of Public
Health. The facility's request shall be granted unless the suspended
beds fail to comply with current operational requirements for
licensure.
   (e) The department shall meet with each patient who has chosen not
to participate in a specific course of offender treatment during
monthly treatment planning conferences. At these conferences the
department shall explain treatment options available to the patient,
offer and re-offer treatment to the patient, seek to obtain the
patient's cooperation in the recommended treatment options, and
document these steps in the patient's health record. The fact that a
patient has chosen not to participate in treatment in the past shall
not establish that the patient continues to choose not to
participate.
  SEC. 146.  Section 6608 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   6608.  (a) Nothing in this article shall prohibit the person who
has been committed as a sexually violent predator from petitioning
the court for conditional release or an unconditional discharge
without the recommendation or concurrence of the Director of State
Hospitals. If a person has previously filed a petition for
conditional release without the concurrence of the director and the
court determined, either upon review of the petition or following a
hearing, that the petition was frivolous or that the committed person'
s condition had not so changed that he or she would not be a danger
to others in that it is not likely that he or she will engage in
sexually violent criminal behavior if placed under supervision and
treatment in the community, then the court shall deny the subsequent
petition unless it contains facts upon which a court could find that
the condition of the committed person had so changed that a hearing
was warranted. Upon receipt of a first or subsequent petition from a
committed person without the concurrence of the director, the court
shall endeavor whenever possible to review the petition and determine
if it is based upon frivolous grounds and, if so, shall deny the
petition without a hearing. The person petitioning for conditional
release and unconditional discharge under this subdivision shall be
entitled to assistance of counsel. The person petitioning for
conditional release or unconditional discharge shall serve a copy of
the petition on the State Department of State Hospitals at the time
the petition is filed with the court.
   (b) The court shall give notice of the hearing date to the
attorney designated in subdivision (i) of Section 6601, the retained
or appointed attorney for the committed person, and the Director of
State Hospitals at least 30 court days before the hearing date.
   (c) No hearing upon the petition shall be held until the person
who is committed has been under commitment for confinement and care
in a facility designated by the Director of State Hospitals for not
less than one year from the date of the order of commitment.
   (d) The court shall hold a hearing to determine whether the person
committed would be a danger to the health and safety of others in
that it is likely that he or she will engage in sexually violent
criminal behavior due to his or her diagnosed mental disorder if
under supervision and treatment in the community. If the court at the
hearing determines that the committed person would not be a danger
to others due to his or her diagnosed mental disorder while under
supervision and treatment in the community, the court shall order the
committed person placed with an appropriate forensic conditional
release program operated by the state for one year. A substantial
portion of the state-operated forensic conditional release program
shall include outpatient supervision and treatment. The court shall
retain jurisdiction of the person throughout the course of the
program. At the end of one year, the court shall hold a hearing to
determine if the person should be unconditionally released from
commitment on the basis that, by reason of a diagnosed mental
disorder, he or she is not a danger to the health and safety of
others in that it is not likely that he or she will engage in
sexually violent criminal behavior. The court shall not make this
determination until the person has completed at least one year in the
state-operated forensic conditional release program. The court shall
notify the Director of State Hospitals of the hearing date.
   (e) Before placing a committed person in a state-operated forensic
conditional release program, the community program director
designated by the State Department of State Hospitals shall submit a
written recommendation to the court stating which forensic
conditional release program is most appropriate for supervising and
treating the committed person. If the court does not accept the
community program director's recommendation, the court shall specify
the reason or reasons for its order on the record. The procedures
described in Sections 1605 to 1610, inclusive, of the Penal Code
shall apply to the person placed in the forensic conditional release
program.
   (f) If the court determines that the person should be transferred
to a state-operated forensic conditional release program, the
community program director, or his or her designee, shall make the
necessary placement arrangements and, within 30 days after receiving
notice of the court's finding, the person shall be placed in the
community in accordance with the treatment and supervision plan
unless good cause for not doing so is presented to the court.
   (g) If the court rules against the committed person at the trial
for unconditional release from commitment, the court may place the
committed person on outpatient status in accordance with the
procedures described in Title 15 (commencing with Section 1600) of
Part 2 of the Penal Code.
   (h) If the court denies the petition to place the person in an
appropriate forensic conditional release program or if the petition
for unconditional discharge is denied, the person may not file a new
application until one year has elapsed from the date of the denial.
   (i) In any hearing authorized by this section, the petitioner
shall have the burden of proof by a preponderance of the evidence.
   (j) If the petition for conditional release is not made by the
director of the treatment facility to which the person is committed,
no action on the petition shall be taken by the court without first
obtaining the written recommendation of the director of the treatment
facility.
   (k) Time spent in a conditional release program pursuant to this
section shall not count toward the term of commitment under this
article unless the person is confined in a locked facility by the
conditional release program, in which case the time spent in a locked
facility shall count toward the term of commitment.

  SEC. 174.  Section 7284 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7284.  If any incompetent person, who has no guardian or
conservator of the estate and who has been admitted or committed to
the State Department of State Hospitals for placement in any state
hospital for the mentally disordered, is the owner of any property,
the State Department of State Hospitals, acting through its
designated officer, may apply to the superior court of the proper
county for its appointment as guardian or conservator of the estate
of the incompetent person.
   For the purposes of this section, the State Department of State

Hospitals dies, leaving any estate, and having no relatives at the
time residing within this state, the State Department of State
Hospitals may apply for letters of administration of his or her
estate, and, in the discretion of the court, letters of
administration may be issued to the department. When the State
Department of State Hospitals is appointed as guardian, conservator,
or administrator, the department shall be appointed as guardian or
conservator or administrator without bond. The officer designated by
the department shall be required to give a surety bond in such amount
as may be deemed necessary from time to time by the director, but in
no event shall the initial bond be less than ten thousand dollars
($10,000), which bond shall be for the joint benefit of the several
estates and the State of California. The State Department of State
Hospitals shall receive any reasonable fees for its services as the
guardian, conservator, or administrator as the court allows. The fees
paid to the State Department of State Hospitals for its services as
guardian, conservator, or administrator of the various estates may be
used as a trust account from which may be drawn expenses for filing
fees, bond premiums, court costs, and other expenses required in the
administration of the various estates. Whenever the balance remaining
in the trust fund account shall exceed a sum deemed necessary by the
department for the payment of expenses, the excess shall be paid

estate in such trusts. The funds in such trusts may be invested only
in bonds or obligations issued or guaranteed by the United States or
the State of California.
   The income and profits of each trust shall be the property of the
estates participating and shall be distributed, when received, in
proportion to the amount of participation of each estate in such
trust. The losses of each trust shall be the losses of the estates
participating and shall be apportioned, as the same occur, upon the

a state institution and remains under the jurisdiction of the State
Department of State Hospitals or the State Department of
Developmental Services does not have a guardian or conservator of the
estate and owns personal property which requires safekeeping for the
benefit of the patient, the State Department of State Hospitals or
the State Department of Developmental Services may remove or cause to
be removed the personal property from wherever located to a place of
safekeeping.
   Whenever it appears that the patient does not own property of a
value which would warrant guardianship or conservatorship
proceedings, the expenses of removal and safekeeping shall be paid
from funds appropriated for the support of the institution in which
the patient is receiving care and treatment; provided, however, that
if the sum on deposit to the credit of the patient in the patients'
personal deposit fund exceeds the sum of three hundred dollars
($300), the excess may be applied to the payment of the expenses of
removal and safekeeping.
   When it is determined by the superintendent, at any time after the
removal for safekeeping of the personal property, that the patient
is incurable or is likely to remain in a state institution
indefinitely, then any of those articles of personal property which
cannot be used by the patient at the institution may be sold at
public auction and the proceeds therefrom shall first be applied in
reimbursement of the expenses so incurred, and the balance shall be
deposited to the patient's credit in the patients' personal deposit
fund. All moneys so received as reimbursement shall be deposited in
the State Treasury in augmentation of the appropriation from which
the expenses were paid.

which the person is a client, and the statement that the total amount
requested pursuant to the affidavit does not exceed the sum of three
thousand dollars ($3,000). Payments from retirement systems and
annuity plans which are due or owing to the clients may also be
collected by the executive director of the institution of which the
person is a client, upon the furnishing of an affidavit executed by
the executive director or acting executive director, containing the
name of the institution of which the person is a client and the
statement that the person is entitled to receive the payments. These
sums shall be delivered to the executive director and shall be
deposited by him or her in the clients' personal deposit fund as
provided in Section 7281.
   The receipt of the executive director shall constitute sufficient
acquittance for any payment of money made pursuant to this section
and shall fully discharge the person, representative, officer, body
or corporation from any further liability with reference to the
amount of money so paid.
   The executive director of each institution shall render reports
and accounts annually or more often as may be required by the
department having jurisdiction over the hospital or the Department of

the State Department of State Hospitals as it applies to state
hospitals under its jurisdiction, to reflect any increases or
decreases in the cost of living occurring after December 31, 1967, so
that the first adjustment becomes effective January 1, 1990. The
indices of the California Consumer Price Index--All Urban as prepared
by the Department of Industrial Relations, shall be used as the
basis for determining the changes in the cost of living.
   (b) In implementing the cost-of-living provisions of this section,
the State Department of Developmental Services and the State
Department of State Hospitals shall use the most recent December for
computation of the percentage change in the cost of living after
December 31, 1967. The amount of this adjustment shall be made by
comparing the average index for the most recent December with the
average index for December 1967. The product of any percentage
increase or decrease in the average index and the amount set forth in
Section 7289 shall be the adjusted amount subject to affidavit
pursuant to the provisions of Section 7289.
  SEC. 181.  Section 7290 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is

her care, support, maintenance, or other expenses at the institution.
Such agreement and bond shall be to the people of the State of
California and action to enforce the same may be brought thereon by
the department. All charges due under the provisions of this section,
including the monthly rate for the patient's care and treatment as

committing court orders the return of the person, the person shall be
returned forthwith to await further action of the court. If within
30 days after the receipt of the certification the committing court
does not order the return of the person to await the further action
of the court, the medical superintendent may thereafter parole the
person under the terms and conditions as may be specified by the
superintendent. Any paroled inmate may at any time during the parole
period be recalled to the institution. The period of parole shall in
no case be less than five years, and shall be on the same general
rules and conditions as parole of the mentally disordered.
   When any person has been paroled for five consecutive years, if in
the opinion of the medical superintendent and the Director of State
Hospitals the person is no longer a menace to the health, person, or
property of himself or herself or of any other person, the medical
superintendent, subject to the approval of the Director of State
Hospitals, may discharge the person. The committing court shall be
furnished with a certified copy of the discharge and shall thereupon
make such disposition of the court case as it deems necessary and
proper.
   When, in the opinion of the medical superintendent, a person
previously committed as a defective or psychopathic delinquent will
not benefit by further care and treatment under any facilities of the
department and should be returned to the jurisdiction of the court,

Hospitals shall certify the opinion to the committing court including
therein a report, diagnosis and recommendation concerning the person'
s future care, supervision, or treatment. Upon receipt of the
certification, the committing court shall forthwith order the return
of the person to the court. The person shall be entitled to a court
hearing and to present witnesses in his or her own behalf, to be
represented by counsel and to cross-examine any witness who testifies
against him or her. After considering all the evidence before it,

department. Whenever, in the opinion of the Director of State
Hospitals, it appears that a person admitted prior to July 1, 1969,
or that a person judicially committed or remanded to the State
Department of State Hospitals for placement in an institution would
be benefited by a transfer from that institution to another
institution in the department, the director may cause the transfer of
the patient from that institution to another institution under the
jurisdiction of the department. Preference shall be given in any such
transfer to an institution in an adjoining rather than a remote
district.
   However, before any inmate of a correctional school may be
transferred to a state hospital for the mentally disordered he or she
shall first be returned to a court of competent jurisdiction, and,
if subject to commitment, after hearing, may be committed to a state
hospital for the mentally disordered in accordance with law.
   The expense of such transfers is chargeable to the state, and the
bills for the same, when approved by the Director of State Hospitals,
shall be paid by the Treasurer on the warrant of the Controller, out
of any moneys provided for the care or support of the patients or
out of the moneys provided for the support of the department, in the
discretion of the department.
  SEC. 186.  Section 7301 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:

a state hospital pursuant to provisions of the Penal Code or who has
been placed in a state hospital temporarily for observation pursuant
to, or who has been committed to a state hospital pursuant to Article
1 (commencing with Section 6300) of Chapter 2 of Part 2 of Division
6 of this code needs care and treatment under conditions of custodial

jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
   Persons so transferred shall not be subject to the provisions of
Section 4500, 4501, 4501.5, 4502, 4530, or 4531 of the Penal Code.
However, they shall be subject to the general rules of the Secretary
of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and of the
facility where they are confined and any correctional employee
dealing with those persons during the course of an escape or
attempted escape, a fight or a riot, shall have the same rights,
privileges and immunities as if the person transferred had been
committed to the Secretary of the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation.
   Whenever a person is transferred to an institution under the
jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
pursuant to this section, any report, opinion, or certificate
required or authorized to be filed with the court which committed the
person to a state hospital, or ordered the person placed therein,
shall be prepared and filed with the court by the head of the
institution in which the person is actually confined or by the
designee of the head of the institution.

the state rather than the county is liable for the support and care
of patients, the county of commitment may have the original
commitment vacated and a new commitment issued, designating the
institution to which the person has been transferred, in order to
absolve the county from liability under the original commitment.

amended to read:
   7304.  Whenever a person, committed to the State Department of
State Hospitals or the State Department of Developmental Services
under one of the commitment laws providing for no reimbursement for
care and treatment to the state by the county of commitment, is
transferred under Section 6700 to an institution under the
jurisdiction of the department where the county is required to
reimburse the state for such care and treatment, the State Department
of State Hospitals or the State Department of Developmental Services
may have the original commitment vacated and a new commitment
issued, designating the institution to which the person has been

treatment of the committed person to the extent provided by Sections

Administration of the United States government, or any facility
designated by a county pursuant to Part 1 (commencing with Section
5000) of Division 5, or any facility into which the patient has been
placed by his or her conservator appointed pursuant to Chapter 3
(commencing with Section 5350) of Part 1 of Division 5, or when a
judicially committed patient's return from leave of absence has been
authorized or ordered by the State Department of State Hospitals, or
the State Department of Developmental Services, or the facility of
the Veterans' Administration, any peace officer, upon written request
of the state hospital, veterans' facility, or the facility
designated by a county, or the patient's conservator appointed
pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 5350) of Part 1 of
Division 5, shall, without
         the necessity of a warrant or court order, or any officer or
employee of the State Department of State Hospitals, or of the State
Department of Developmental Services, designated to perform these
duties may, apprehend, take into custody, and deliver the patient to
the state hospital or to a facility of the Veterans' Administration,
or the facility designated by a county, or to any person or place
authorized by the State Department of State Hospitals, the State
Department of Developmental Services, the Veterans' Administration,
the local director of the county mental health program of the county
in which is located the facility designated by the county, or the
patient's conservator appointed pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing
with Section 5350) of Part 1 of Division 5, as the case may be, to
receive him or her. Every officer or employee of the State Department
of State Hospitals, or of the State Department of Developmental
Services, designated to apprehend or return those patients has the
powers and privileges of peace officers so far as necessary to
enforce this section.
   (b) As used in this section, "peace officer" means a person as
specified in Section 830.1 of the Penal Code.
   (c) Any officer or employee of a state hospital, hospital or
facility operated by or under the Veterans' Administration, or any
facility designated by a county pursuant to Part 1 (commencing with
Section 5000) of Division 5 shall provide any peace officer with any
information concerning any patient who escapes from the hospital or
facility that is necessary to assist in the apprehension and return
of the patient. The written notification of the escape required by
this section shall include the name and physical description of the
patient, his or her home address, the degree of dangerousness of the
patient, including specific information about the patient if he or
she is deemed likely to cause harm to himself or herself or to
others, and any additional information that is necessary to apprehend
and return the patient. If the escapee has been charged with any
crime involving physical harm to children, the notice shall be
provided by the law enforcement agency to school districts in the
vicinity of the hospital or other facility in which the escapee was
being held, in the area the escapee is known or is likely to
frequent, and in the area where the escapee resided immediately prior
to confinement.
   (d) The person in charge of the hospital or facility, or his or
her designee, may provide telephonic notification of the escape to
the law enforcement agency of the county or city in which the
hospital or facility is located. If that notification is given, the
time and date of notification, the person notified, and the person
making the notification shall be noted in the written notification
required by this section.
   (e) Photocopying is not required in order to satisfy the
requirements of this section.
   (f) No public or private entity or public or private employee
shall be liable for damages caused, or alleged to be caused, by the
release of information or the failure to release information pursuant
to this section.
  SEC. 190.  Section 7328 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7328.  Whenever a person who is committed to an institution
subject to the jurisdiction of the State Department of State
Hospitals or the State Department of Developmental Services, under
one of the commitment laws that provides for reimbursement for care
and treatment to the state by the county of commitment of the person,
is accused of committing a crime while confined in the institution
and is committed by the court in which the crime is charged to
another institution under the jurisdiction of the State Department of
State Hospitals or the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation,
the state rather than the county of commitment shall bear the
subsequent cost of supporting and caring for the person.
  SEC. 191.  Section 7329 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7329.  When any patient, who is subject to judicial commitment,
has escaped from any public mental hospital in a state of the United
States other than California and is present in this state, any peace
officer, health officer, county physician, or assistant county
physician may take the person into custody within five years after
the escape. The person may be admitted and detained in the quarters
provided in any county hospital or state hospital upon application of
the peace officer, health officer, county physician, or assistant
county physician. The application shall be in writing and shall state
the identity of the person, the name and place of the institution
from which he or she escaped and the approximate date of the escape,
and the fact that the person has been apprehended pursuant to this
section.
   As soon as possible after the person is apprehended, the district
attorney of the county in which the person is present shall file a
petition in the superior court alleging the facts of the escape, and
requesting an immediate hearing on the question of whether the person
has escaped from a public mental hospital in another state within
five years prior to his or her apprehension. The hearing shall be
held within three days after the day on which the person was taken
into custody. If the court finds that the person has not escaped from
such a hospital within five years prior to his or her apprehension,
he or she shall be released immediately.
   If the court finds that the person did escape from a public mental
hospital in another state within five years prior to his or her
apprehension, the superintendent or physician in charge of the
quarters provided in the county hospital or state hospital may care
for and treat the person, and the district attorney of the county in
which the person is present immediately shall present to a judge of
the superior court a petition asking that the person be judicially
committed to a state hospital in this state. The hearing on the
petition shall be held within seven days after the court's
determination in the original hearing that the person did escape from
a public mental hospital in another state within five years prior to
his apprehension. Proceedings shall thereafter be conducted as on a
petition for judicial commitment of the particular type of person
subject to judicial commitment. If the court finds that the person is
subject to judicial commitment it shall order him or her judicially
committed to a state hospital in this state; otherwise, it shall
order him or her to be released. It shall be the duty of the
superintendent of the state hospital to accept custody of the person,
if he or she has been determined to be subject to judicial
commitment. The State Department of State Hospitals will promptly
cause the person to be returned to the institution from which he or
she escaped if the authorities in charge of the institution agree to
accept him or her. If the authorities refuse to accept the person,
the superintendent of the state hospital in which the person is
confined shall continue to care for and treat the person in the same
manner as any other person judicially committed to the hospital as
mentally disordered.
  SEC. 192.  Section 7352 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7352.  The medical director of a state hospital for the mentally
disordered may grant a leave of absence to any judicially committed
patient, except as provided in Section 7350, under general conditions
prescribed by the State Department of State Hospitals.

services to patients placed on leave of absence prior to July 1,
1969, to the extent such services are authorized by law in effect
immediately preceding July 1, 1969.
  SEC. 193.  Section 7353 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7353.  The State Department of State Hospitals shall pay the
premium for third-party health coverage for Medicare beneficiaries
who are patients at state hospitals under the jurisdiction of the
State Department of State Hospitals. The department shall, when a
mental health state hospital patient's coverage would lapse due to
lack of sufficient income or financial resources, or any other
reason, continue the health coverage by paying the costs of
continuation or group coverage pursuant to federal law or converting
from a group to an individual plan.
  SEC. 194.  Section 7354 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7354.  Any mentally disordered person may be granted care in a
licensed institution or other suitable licensed or certified
facility. The State Department of State Hospitals may pay for that
care at a rate not exceeding the average cost of care of patients in
the state hospitals as determined by the Director of State Hospitals.
The payments shall be made from funds available to the State
Department of State Hospitals for that purpose.
   The State Department of State Hospitals may make payments for
services for mentally disordered patients in private facilities
released or discharged from state hospitals on the basis of
reimbursement for reasonable cost, using the same standards and rates
consistent with those established by the State Department of Health
Care Services for similar types of care. The payments shall be made
within the limitation of funds appropriated to the State Department
of State Hospitals for that purpose.
   No payments for care or services of a mentally disordered patient
shall be made by the State Department of State Hospitals pursuant to
this section unless the care or services are requested by the local
director of the mental health services of the county of the patient's
residence, unless provision for the care or services is made in the
county Short-Doyle plan of the county under which the county shall
reimburse the department for 10 percent of the amount expended by the
department, exclusive of the portion of the cost that is provided by
the federal government.
   The provision for the 10-percent county share shall be
inapplicable with respect to any county with a population of under
100,000 which has not elected to participate financially in providing
services under Division 5 (commencing with Section 5000) in
accordance with Section 5709.5.
  SEC. 195.  Section 7356 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7356.  The charges for the care and keeping of persons on leave of
absence from a state hospital where the State Department of State
Hospitals, the State Department of Developmental Services, or the
State Department of Social Services pays for the care shall be a
liability of the person, his or her estate, and relatives, to the
same extent that the liability exists for patients in state
hospitals.
   The State Department of State Hospitals shall collect or adjust
the charges in accordance with Article 4 (commencing with Section
7275) of Chapter 3 of this division.
  SEC. 196.  Section 7357 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:

her written certificate with the Director of State Hospitals, may
discharge any patient who, in his or her judgment, has recovered or
was not, at time of admission, mentally disordered.
  SEC. 197.  Section 7359 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7359.  The superintendent of a state hospital, on filing his or
her written certificate with the Director of State Hospitals, may
discharge as improved, or may discharge as unimproved, as the case
may be, any judicially committed patient who is not recovered, but
whose discharge, in the judgment of the superintendent, will not be
detrimental to the public welfare, or injurious to the patient.
  SEC. 198.  Section 7362 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   7362.  The medical superintendent of a state hospital, on filing
his or her written certificate with the Director of State Hospitals,
may on his or her own motion, and shall on the order of the State
Department of State Hospitals, discharge any patient who comes within
any of the following descriptions:
   (a) Who is not a proper case for treatment therein.
   (b) Who is developmentally disabled or is affected with a chronic
harmless mental disorder.
    The person, when discharged, shall be returned to the county of
his or her residence at the expense of the county, and delivered to
the sheriff or other appropriate county official to be designated by
the board of supervisors, for delivery to the official or agency in
that county charged with the responsibility for the person. Should
the person be a poor and indigent person, he or she shall be cared
for by the county as are other indigent poor.
   No person who has been discharged from any state hospital under
the provisions of subdivision (b) above shall be again committed to
any state hospital for the mentally disordered unless he or she is
subject to judicial commitment.

of the Director of Finance may accept gifts or grants from any source
for the accomplishment of the objects and purposes of this chapter.
The provisions of Section 16302 of the Government Code do not apply
to such gifts or grants and the money so received shall be expended

contained in such gift or grant.
  SEC. 202.  Section 15630 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   15630.  (a) Any person who has assumed full or intermittent
responsibility for the care or custody of an elder or dependent
adult, whether or not he or she receives compensation, including
administrators, supervisors, and any licensed staff of a public or
private facility that provides care or services for elder or
dependent adults, or any elder or dependent adult care custodian,
health practitioner, clergy member, or employee of a county adult
protective services agency or a local law enforcement agency, is a
mandated reporter.
   (b) (1) Any mandated reporter who, in his or her professional
capacity, or within the scope of his or her employment, has observed
or has knowledge of an incident that reasonably appears to be
physical abuse, as defined in Section 15610.63, abandonment,
abduction, isolation, financial abuse, or neglect, or is told by an
elder or dependent adult that he or she has experienced behavior,
including an act or omission, constituting physical abuse, as defined
in Section 15610.63, abandonment, abduction, isolation, financial
abuse, or neglect, or reasonably suspects that abuse, shall report
the known or suspected instance of abuse by telephone or through a
confidential Internet reporting tool, as authorized by Section 15658,
immediately or as soon as practicably possible. If reported by
telephone, a written report shall be sent, or an Internet report
shall be made through the confidential Internet reporting tool
established in Section 15658, within two working days, as follows:
   (A) If the abuse has occurred in a long-term care facility, except
a state mental health hospital or a state developmental center, the
report shall be made to the local ombudsperson or the local law
enforcement agency.
   The local ombudsperson and the local law enforcement agency shall,
as soon as practicable, except in the case of an emergency or
pursuant to a report required to be made pursuant to clause (v), in
which case these actions shall be taken immediately, do all of the
following:
   (i) Report to the State Department of Public Health any case of
known or suspected abuse occurring in a long-term health care
facility, as defined in subdivision (a) of Section 1418 of the Health
and Safety Code.
   (ii) Report to the State Department of Social Services any case of
known or suspected abuse occurring in a residential care facility

hospital or a state developmental center, the report shall be made to
designated investigators of the State Department of State Hospitals
or the State Department of Developmental Services, or to the local
law enforcement agency.
   Except in an emergency, the local law enforcement agency shall, as
soon as practicable, report any case of known or suspected criminal
activity to the Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse.
   (C) If the abuse has occurred any place other than one described
in subparagraph (A), the report shall be made to the adult protective
services agency or the local law enforcement agency.
   (2) (A) A mandated reporter who is a clergy member who acquires
knowledge or reasonable suspicion of elder or dependent adult abuse
during a penitential communication is not subject to paragraph (1).
For purposes of this subdivision, "penitential communication" means a
communication that is intended to be in confidence, including, but
not limited to, a sacramental confession made to a clergy member who,
in the course of the discipline or practice of his or her church,
denomination, or organization is authorized or accustomed to hear
those communications and under the discipline tenets, customs, or
practices of his or her church, denomination, or organization, has a
duty to keep those communications secret.
   (B) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to modify or
limit a clergy member's duty to report known or suspected elder and
dependent adult abuse when he or she is acting in the capacity of a
care custodian, health practitioner, or employee of an adult
protective services agency.
   (C) Notwithstanding any other provision in this section, a clergy
member who is not regularly employed on either a full-time or
part-time basis in a long-term care facility or does not have care or
custody of an elder or dependent adult shall not be responsible for
reporting abuse or neglect that is not reasonably observable or
discernible to a reasonably prudent person having no specialized
training or experience in elder or dependent care.
   (3) (A) A mandated reporter who is a physician and surgeon, a
registered nurse, or a psychotherapist, as defined in Section 1010 of
the Evidence Code, shall not be required to report, pursuant to
paragraph (1), an incident where all of the following conditions
exist:
   (i) The mandated reporter has been told by an elder or dependent
adult that he or she has experienced behavior constituting physical
abuse, as defined in Section 15610.63, abandonment, abduction,
isolation, financial abuse, or neglect.
   (ii) The mandated reporter is not aware of any independent

mental illness or dementia, or is the subject of a court-ordered
conservatorship because of a mental illness or dementia.
   (iv) In the exercise of clinical judgment, the physician and
surgeon, the registered nurse, or the psychotherapist, as defined in
Section 1010 of the Evidence Code, reasonably believes that the abuse
did not occur.
   (B) This paragraph shall not be construed to impose upon mandated
reporters a duty to investigate a known or suspected incident of
abuse and shall not be construed to lessen or restrict any existing
duty of mandated reporters.
   (4) (A) In a long-term care facility, a mandated reporter shall
not be required to report as a suspected incident of abuse, as
defined in Section 15610.07, an incident where all of the following

properly provided or executed.
   (iii) A physical, mental, or medical injury occurred as a result
of care provided pursuant to clause (i) or (ii).
   (iv) The mandated reporter reasonably believes that the injury was
not the result of abuse.
   (B) This paragraph shall not be construed to require a mandated
reporter to seek, nor to preclude a mandated reporter from seeking,
information regarding a known or suspected incident of abuse prior to
reporting. This paragraph shall apply only to those categories of
mandated reporters that the State Department of Public Health
determines, upon approval by the Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder
Abuse and the state long-term care ombudsperson, have access to plans
of care and have the training and experience necessary to determine
whether the conditions specified in this section have been met.
   (c) (1) Any mandated reporter who has knowledge, or reasonably
suspects, that types of elder or dependent adult abuse for which
reports are not mandated have been inflicted upon an elder or
dependent adult, or that his or her emotional well-being is
endangered in any other way, may report the known or suspected
instance of abuse.
   (2) If the suspected or alleged abuse occurred in a long-term care
facility other than a state mental health hospital or a state
developmental center, the report may be made to the long-term care
ombudsperson program. Except in an emergency, the local ombudsperson
shall report any case of known or suspected abuse to the State
Department of Public Health and any case of known or suspected
criminal activity to the Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse, as
soon as is practicable.
   (3) If the suspected or alleged abuse occurred in a state mental
health hospital or a state developmental center, the report may be
made to the designated investigator of the State Department of State
Hospitals or the State Department of Developmental Services or to a
local law enforcement agency or to the local ombudsperson. Except in
an emergency, the local ombudsperson and the local law enforcement
agency shall report any case of known or suspected criminal activity
to the Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse, as soon as is
practicable.
   (4) If the suspected or alleged abuse occurred in a place other
than a place described in paragraph (2) or (3), the report may be
made to the county adult protective services agency.
   (5) If the conduct involves criminal activity not covered in
subdivision (b), it may be immediately reported to the appropriate
law enforcement agency.
   (d) When two or more mandated reporters are present and jointly
have knowledge or reasonably suspect that types of abuse of an elder
or a dependent adult for which a report is or is not mandated have
occurred, and when there is agreement among them, the telephone
report or Internet report, as authorized by Section 15658, may be
made by a member of the team selected by mutual agreement, and a
single report may be made and signed by the selected member of the
reporting team. Any member who has knowledge that the member
designated to report has failed to do so shall thereafter make the
report.
   (e) A telephone report or Internet report, as authorized by
Section 15658, of a known or suspected instance of elder or dependent
adult abuse shall include, if known, the name of the person making
the report, the name and age of the elder or dependent adult, the
present location of the elder or dependent adult, the names and
addresses of family members or any other adult responsible for the
elder's or dependent adult's care, the nature and extent of the elder'
s or dependent adult's condition, the date of the incident, and any
other information, including information that led that person to
suspect elder or dependent adult abuse, as requested by the agency
receiving the report.
   (f) The reporting duties under this section are individual, and no
supervisor or administrator shall impede or inhibit the reporting
duties, and no person making the report shall be subject to any
sanction for making the report. However, internal procedures to
facilitate reporting, ensure confidentiality, and apprise supervisors
and administrators of reports may be established, provided they are
not inconsistent with this chapter.
   (g) (1) Whenever this section requires a county adult protective
services agency to report to a law enforcement agency, the law
enforcement agency shall, immediately upon request, provide a copy of
its investigative report concerning the reported matter to that
county adult protective services agency.
   (2) Whenever this section requires a law enforcement agency to
report to a county adult protective services agency, the county adult
protective services agency shall, immediately upon request, provide
to that law enforcement agency a copy of its investigative report
concerning the reported matter.
   (3) The requirement to disclose investigative reports pursuant to
this subdivision shall not include the disclosure of social services
records or case files that are confidential, nor shall this
subdivision be construed to allow disclosure of any reports or
records if the disclosure would be prohibited by any other provision
of state or federal law.
   (h) Failure to report, or impeding or inhibiting a report of,
physical abuse, as defined in Section 15610.63, abandonment,
abduction, isolation, financial abuse, or neglect of an elder or
dependent adult, in violation of this section, is a misdemeanor,
punishable by not more than six months in the county jail, by a fine
of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine
and imprisonment. Any mandated reporter who
                willfully fails to report, or impedes or inhibits a
report of, physical abuse, as defined in Section 15610.63,
abandonment, abduction, isolation, financial abuse, or neglect of an
elder or dependent adult, in violation of this section, where that
abuse results in death or great bodily injury, shall be punished by
not more than one year in a county jail, by a fine of not more than
five thousand dollars ($5,000), or by both that fine and
imprisonment. If a mandated reporter intentionally conceals his or
her failure to report an incident known by the mandated reporter to
be abuse or severe neglect under this section, the failure to report
is a continuing offense until a law enforcement agency specified in
paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) of Section 15630 discovers the
offense.
   (i) For purposes of this section, "dependent adult" shall have the
same meaning as in Section 15610.23.

   (3) The Controller shall allocate three million seven hundred
thousand dollars ($3,700,000) to the counties pursuant to a

   (B) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the State
Department of Health Care Services shall amend Schedule A for the

17605.05 shall be used for this purpose.
   (b) (1) Schedule B--State Hospital Payment Schedule.
   From the amounts allocated in accordance with Schedule A, each

the State Department of Mental Health, or its successor, the State
Department of State Hospitals, for the 1991-92 fiscal year only, an
amount equal to one-ninth of the amount identified in Schedule B as
modified to reflect adjustments pursuant to paragraph (2) of
subdivision (a) of Section 4330. The reimbursements shall be due the
24th day of each month and the first payment shall be due on October
24, 1991. During the 1992-93 fiscal year and fiscal years thereafter,
each monthly reimbursement shall be one-twelfth of the total amount
of the county's contract with the State Department of Mental Health,
or its successor, the State Department of State Hospitals, for state
hospital services. If a county has not contracted with the State
Department of State Hospitals by July 1 of any given fiscal year,
each monthly reimbursement shall be an amount equal to one-twelfth
the number of beds provided to the county the previous fiscal year
multiplied by the current state rate as determined by the State
Department of State Hospitals.
