	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 1381, Pavley. Mental retardation: change of term to
intellectual disability.
   Existing law refers to mental retardation or a mentally retarded
person in provisions relating to, among other things, educational and
social services, commitment to state facilities, and criminal
punishment.
   This bill would revise these provisions to refer instead to
intellectual disability or a person with an intellectual disability.
This bill would provide that it is the intent of the Legislature that
the bill not be construed to change the coverage, eligibility,
rights, responsibilities, or substantive definitions referred to in
the amended provisions of the bill. This bill would make related and
technical changes.



THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  (a) It is the intent of the Legislature to increase
respect for people with disabilities by eliminating the use of the
outdated, offensive, and misleading terms "mental retardation" and
"mentally retarded."
   (b) It is the intent of the Legislature that this act shall be
construed to amend provisions of state law to replace the term
"mental retardation" with "intellectual disability," and the term
"mentally retarded person" with "person with intellectual
disabilities," and shall not be construed to change the coverage,
eligibility, rights, responsibilities, or substantive definitions
referred to in the amended provisions of this act.
   (c) As used in a state regulation, state publication, or other
writing, the terms "mental retardation" and "mentally retarded person"
have the same meaning as the terms "intellectual disability" and
"person with intellectual disability," unless the context or an
explicit provision of federal or state law clearly requires a
different meaning.
   (d) It is the intent of the Legislature that state agencies revise
state regulations, state publications, Internet Web sites, and other
writings to change the terminology as required by this act when
there is another reason to revise the regulation, publication,
Internet Web site, or other writing, thus eliminating any additional
state cost.
   (e) For purposes of this section, "person" includes child,
defendant, individual, minor, pupil, and other words used to describe
a type of person.
  SEC. 2.  Section 4502 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:

of mentally ill or emotionally disturbed persons, or persons with
intellectual disabilities, and who has one or more of the following:
   (a) Direct responsibility for administering or implementing
specific therapeutic procedures, techniques, treatments, or
medications with the aim of enabling recipients or patients to make
optimal use of their therapeutic regime, their social and personal
resources, and their residential care.
   (b) Direct responsibility for the application of interpersonal and
technical skills in the observation and recognition of symptoms and
reactions of recipients or patients, for the accurate recording of
these symptoms and reactions, and for the carrying out of treatments
and medications as prescribed by a licensed physician and surgeon or
a psychiatrist.
   The psychiatric technician in the performance of these procedures
and techniques is responsible to the director of the service in which
his or her duties are performed. The director may be a licensed
physician and surgeon, psychiatrist, psychologist, rehabilitation
therapist, social worker, registered nurse, or other professional
personnel.
   Nothing herein shall authorize a licensed psychiatric technician
to practice medicine or surgery or to undertake the prevention,
treatment, or cure of disease, pain, injury, deformity, or mental or
physical condition in violation of the law.

resulting from the defendant's conduct.
   (d) A court of competent jurisdiction hearing an action pursuant
to this section may make orders and judgments as necessary to restore
to a senior citizen or disabled person money or property, real or
personal that may have been acquired by means of a violation of this
chapter. Restitution ordered pursuant to this subdivision shall be
given priority over recovery of a civil penalty designated by the
court as imposed pursuant to subdivision (a), but shall not be given
priority over a civil penalty imposed pursuant to subdivision (a) of
Section 17206. If the court determines that full restitution cannot

district who are blind, partially seeing, aphasic, deaf, hard of
hearing, orthopedically impaired, or have an intellectual disability,

Statutes of 1977, who reside within a district having an average
daily attendance of 900 or more and that does not meet the
requirements of Section 16058 concerning outstanding bonded
indebtedness.
   Allocations for housing and equipment for minors having speech
defects or disorders shall be allowed in new schools constructed
after July 1, 1968, and in existing schools constructed between July
1, 1933, and July 1, 1968. The housing and equipment shall be
designed and provided to permit their utilization for remedial and
other special services including speech therapy, speech reading
(lipreading), and auditory training for the speech and hearing
handicapped, screening and testing for speech and hearing defects, or
both, psychological testing of exceptional children, subject matter
tutoring of exceptional children, and other specialized activities

more than an additional 200 square feet of building area shall be
allowed for each new school so planned and constructed.
   Each existing school, constructed between July 1, 1933, and July

  SEC. 8.  Section 16196 of the Education Code is amended to read:
   16196.  Notwithstanding any provision of this article to the

Section 16000) and Article 2 (commencing with Section 16150) of this

hard-of-hearing, orthopedically impaired or other health-impaired,
multihandicapped, and educationally handicapped minors, minors with
intellectual disabilities, pupils having speech defects or disorders,
or pupils enrolled in development centers for the handicapped.
   The State Department of Education may approve applications if the
facilities will be used by a county superintendent of schools
required to educate physically handicapped minors pursuant to former
Section 1850, as enacted by Section 2 of Chapter 1010 of the Statutes
of 1976, and minors with intellectual disabilities pursuant to
former Section 1880, as enacted by Section 2 of Chapter 1010 of the
Statutes of 1976. A school district may educate these minors by
agreement with a county superintendent of schools required to educate
these minors. Priority in the use of the facilities shall be given
to pupils from districts other than the applicant district.
   Except as otherwise provided in this section, not more than 50
percent of the amount of an apportionment made pursuant to this
section shall be repaid. Repayments shall be made in the following

in full with interest by the district, in the annual amounts and at
the interest rate over the period as the State Allocation Board may
determine, not to exceed 20 years from the date the apportionment
became final. In a school year in which 50 percent or more of the
pupils in average daily attendance, as determined by the county
superintendent of schools, and served by the facilities are not
pupils from districts other than the applicant district, the
repayment for the succeeding fiscal year shall be an amount that
would have been payable if the district had been required to repay
100 percent of the apportionment over that period.
   The county board of supervisors of the county whose superintendent
of schools conducts classes in the facility during any fiscal year
shall at that time or times within the fiscal year that may be agreed
upon between the county and the school district, but in any case not
later than the end of the fiscal year, pay to the school district
having the obligation to repay the apportionment made under this
section for the construction of the facility, an amount equal to 80
percent of the amount the district is required to repay in the fiscal
year with respect to the apportionment described above.
   The county board of supervisors shall raise the amount required
through a general tax levy on the property within the participating
districts, or through a tuition charge not to exceed one hundred
sixty dollars ($160) a year per pupil by the county superintendent of
schools to the school districts of residence of pupils attending the
facility other than the district having the obligation to repay, or
through a combination of these.
   The county superintendent of schools shall notify the county board
of supervisors of his or her intention to approve a school district'
s application for an allocation under this article before he or she
approves the application.
  SEC. 9.  Section 16200 of the Education Code is amended to read:
   16200.  Notwithstanding any provision of this article to the
contrary, the board may make apportionments to school districts not
otherwise eligible to receive apportionments under Article 1
(commencing with Section 16000) and Article 2 (commencing with
Section 16150) for the construction of special education facilities
and the purchase of essential furniture and equipment for the purpose
of either or both of the following: (1) educating those physically
handicapped and educationally handicapped pupils and pupils with
intellectual disabilities who regularly reside in an established,
licensed children's institution or family home and are being educated
pursuant to former Section 42902, as amended by Section 1 of Chapter
1173 of the Statutes of 1977, and (2) educating handicapped pupils
in development centers for handicapped pupils pursuant to former
Article 1 (commencing with Section 56800) of Chapter 6 of Part 30, as
enacted by Section 2 of Chapter 1010 of the Statutes of 1976.
   Only 50 percent of any amounts allocated and disbursed to a
district under this section shall be repaid by the district. Each
disbursement shall be repaid in 20 equal annual installments,
including interest as determined by the board, and shall be computed
and withheld by the Controller. The first computation of repayment of
any disbursement shall be made in the fiscal year following the
disbursement and shall during the next fiscal year be deducted in
equal amounts from the February, March, April, and May installments
of the apportionment made to the district from the State School Fund
under Sections 41330 to 41343, inclusive, and Sections 41600 to
41972, inclusive.
  SEC. 10.  Section 41306 of the Education Code is amended to read:
   41306.  The Superintendent of Public Instruction shall also allow
as otherwise provided in Section 41304 for the driver training
instruction necessary to be safely tested for a driver's license at
the Department of Motor Vehicles, those physically handicapped
pupils, pupils with intellectual disabilities who come within the
provisions of former Section 56501, as amended by Chapter 1247 of the
Statutes of 1977, and educationally handicapped pupils who are in
attendance in a public secondary school in California that offers
qualified instruction, and who may qualify for a driver's license, or
other license, issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles, a total
allowance not to exceed two hundred ninety dollars ($290) including
the reimbursement provisions set forth in Section 41900 to each
school district and county superintendent of schools. All driver
training for pupils herein described shall be provided by qualified
teachers, as defined by Sections 41906 and 41907. This section may
not be applied if reimbursement allowable under Sections 41900 to
41912, inclusive, is sufficient to meet the total cost of instruction
as herein described.
   It is the intent of the Legislature that driver training
instruction be provided to pupils as a part of the high school
curriculum, and the Legislature finds and declares that exceptional
children are entitled to the benefit of that instruction so far as
their individual capabilities permit, understanding that those pupils
herein described often require individualized and amplified driver
training instruction in order to succeed in becoming safe operators
of motor vehicles. Since without a means of self-transportation much
of the overall program of education and rehabilitation provided for
by the Legislature would be of little avail to the person without the
mobility required to become a productive and well-adjusted member of
society, the Legislature further declares that it is incumbent upon
the state to share in the cost of providing a most needed and
desirable program of driver training instruction for these
exceptional children.

   41401.  For the purposes of this article:

special classes, teachers of exceptional children, teachers of pupils
with physical disabilities, teachers of minors with intellectual

and supervises a work experience education program in which pupils
with intellectual disabilities are employed in part-time jobs may use
funds derived from any source, to the extent permissible by
appropriate law or regulation, to pay the wages of pupils so
employed.
   The Legislature hereby finds and declares that the authority
granted by this section is necessary to ensure that the work

educational benefit to students, particularly pupils with
intellectual disabilities, and that the program is deemed to serve a
public purpose.

   12428.  In the event either the Governor or the Legislature should
obtain federal approval to transfer programs receiving federal
support for persons who have an intellectual disability or mental
disorder from one state department to another state department under
the provisions of Public Law 90-577 (Intergovernmental Cooperation
Act of 1968), the Controller shall, upon approval of the Director of
Finance, transfer to a department designated by the Governor the
parts of the appropriation of the other departments that are related
to programs for persons who have an intellectual disability or mental
disorder, provided further, that the transfer shall enable the state
to make maximum utilization of available state and federal funds.

a facility or delivered to a state hospital, developmental center,
or residential facility pursuant to this subdivision unless the
facility, state hospital, developmental center, or residential
facility has a secured perimeter or a locked and controlled treatment
facility, and the judge determines that the public safety will be
protected.
   (F) For purposes of this paragraph, "violent felony" means an
offense specified in subdivision (c) of Section 667.5.
   (G) A defendant charged with a violent felony may be placed on
outpatient status, as specified in Section 1370.4 or 1600, only if
the court finds that the placement will not pose a danger to the
health or safety of others.
   (H) As used in this section, "developmental disability" means a
disability that originates before an individual attains 18 years of
age, continues, or can be expected to continue, indefinitely and
constitutes a substantial handicap for the individual, and shall not
include other handicapping conditions that are solely physical in
nature. As defined by the Director of Developmental Services, in
consultation with the Superintendent of Public Instruction, this term
shall include intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and
autism. This term shall also include handicapping conditions found
to be closely related to intellectual disability or to require
treatment similar to that required for individuals with an
intellectual disability, but shall not include other handicapping
conditions that are solely physical in nature.
   (2) Prior to making the order directing that the defendant be
confined in a state hospital, developmental center, or other
residential facility, or be placed on outpatient status, the court
shall order the regional center director or 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
committed to a state hospital or developmental center or to any other
available residential facility approved by the regional center
director. A person shall not be admitted to a state hospital,
developmental center, or other residential facility or accepted for
outpatient status under Section 1370.4 without having been evaluated
by the regional center director or designee.

law enforcement agency.
   (C) Records of a finding of mental incompetence pursuant to this
chapter arising out of a complaint charging a felony offense
specified in Section 290 or a pending Section 1368 proceeding arising
out of a charge of a Section 290 offense.
   (4) When the defendant is committed to a residential 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
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 a finding of
mental incompetence pursuant to this chapter arising out of a charge
of a Section 290 offense.
   (5) (A) If the defendant is committed or transferred to a state
hospital or developmental center pursuant to this section, the court
may, upon receiving the written recommendation of the executive
director of the state hospital or developmental center and the

regional center director, the court may, upon receiving the written
recommendation of the regional center director, transfer the
defendant to a state hospital or developmental center or to another
residential facility approved by the regional center director.

(commencing with Section 5000) of Division 5 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code) or to commitment or detention pursuant to a
petition filed pursuant to Section 6502 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code.
   The defendant or prosecuting attorney may contest either kind of
order of transfer by filing a petition with 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 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 regional center director
or designee.
   (B) If the defendant is 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 another
facility, copies of the documents specified in paragraph (3) shall be
taken with the defendant to the new facility. 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 admission of a person committed pursuant
to subdivision (a), the executive director or designee of the state
hospital, developmental center, or other facility to which the
defendant is committed, or the outpatient supervisor where the
defendant is placed on outpatient status, shall make a written report
to the committing court and the regional center director or a
designee concerning the defendant's progress toward becoming mentally
competent. If the defendant has not become mentally competent, but
the report discloses a substantial likelihood the defendant will
become mentally competent within the next 90 days, the court may
order that the defendant shall remain in the state hospital,
developmental center, or other facility or on outpatient status for
that period of time. Within 150 days of an admission made pursuant to
subdivision (a) or if the defendant becomes mentally competent, the
executive director or designee of the hospital or developmental
center or person in charge of the facility or the outpatient
supervisor shall report to the court and the regional center director
or his or her designee regarding the defendant's progress toward
becoming mentally competent. The court shall provide to the
prosecutor and defense counsel copies of all reports under this
section. If the report indicates that there is no substantial
likelihood that the defendant has become mentally competent, 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 regional center
director or designee and to the executive director of the
developmental center.
   (2) A defendant who has been committed or has been on outpatient

shall be held pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 1369.
The court shall transmit a copy of its order to the regional center
director or designee and the executive director of the developmental
center.
   (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. A copy of this order shall be
sent to the regional center director or designee and to the executive
director of the developmental center.
   (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) (A) 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 become mentally competent shall be
returned to the committing court.
   (B) The court shall notify the regional center director or
designee and the executive director of the developmental center of
that return and of any resulting court orders.
   (2) In the event of dismissal of the criminal charges before the
defendant becomes mentally competent, the defendant 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), or to commitment and detention pursuant to a
petition filed pursuant to Section 6502 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code. If it is found that the person is not subject to
commitment or detention pursuant to the applicable provision of the
Lanterman-Petris-Short Act (Part 1 (commencing with Section 5000) of
Division 5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code) or to commitment or
detention pursuant to a petition filed pursuant to Section 6502 of
                                              the Welfare and
Institutions Code, the individual shall not be subject to further
confinement pursuant to this article and the criminal action remains
subject to dismissal pursuant to Section 1385. The court shall notify
the regional center director and the executive director of the
developmental center of any dismissal.
   (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, the
criminal action remains subject to dismissal pursuant to Section
1385. If at any time prior to the maximum period of time allowed for
proceedings under this article, the regional center director
concludes that the behavior of the defendant related to the defendant'
s criminal offense has been eliminated during time spent in
court-ordered programs, the court may, upon recommendation of the
regional center director, dismiss the criminal charges. The court
shall transmit a copy of any order of dismissal to the regional
center director and to the executive director of the developmental
center.
   (e) For the purpose of this section, "secure treatment facility"
shall not include, except for state mental hospitals, state
developmental centers, and correctional treatment facilities, a
facility licensed pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing with Section
1250) of, Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 1500) of, or Chapter 3.2

  SEC. 42.  Section 1376 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
   1376.  (a) As used in this section, "intellectual disability"
means the condition of significantly subaverage general intellectual
functioning existing concurrently with deficits in adaptive behavior
and manifested before 18 years of age.
   (b) (1) In any case in which the prosecution seeks the death
penalty, the defendant may, at a reasonable time prior to the
commencement of trial, apply for an order directing that a hearing to
determine intellectual disability be conducted. Upon the submission
of a declaration by a qualified expert stating his or her opinion
that the defendant is a person with an intellectual disability, the
court shall order a hearing to determine whether the defendant is a
person with an intellectual disability. At the request of the
defendant, the court shall conduct the hearing without a jury prior
to the commencement of the trial. The defendant's request for a court
hearing prior to trial shall constitute a waiver of a jury hearing
on the issue of intellectual disability. If the defendant does not
request a court hearing, the court shall order a jury hearing to
determine if the defendant is a person with an intellectual
disability. The jury hearing on intellectual disability shall occur
at the conclusion of the phase of the trial in which the jury has
found the defendant guilty with a finding that one or more of the
special circumstances enumerated in Section 190.2 are true. Except as
provided in paragraph (3), the same jury shall make a finding that
the defendant is a person with an intellectual disability or that the
defendant does not have an intellectual disability.
   (2) For the purposes of the procedures set forth in this section,
the court or jury shall decide only the question of the defendant's
intellectual disability. The defendant shall present evidence in
support of the claim that he or she is a person with an intellectual
disability. The prosecution shall present its case regarding the
issue of whether the defendant is a person with an intellectual
disability. Each party may offer rebuttal evidence. The court, for
good cause in furtherance of justice, may permit either party to
reopen its case to present evidence in support of or opposition to
the claim of intellectual disability. Nothing in this section shall
prohibit the court from making orders reasonably necessary to ensure
the production of evidence sufficient to determine whether or not the
defendant is a person with an intellectual disability, including,
but not limited to, the appointment of, and examination of the
defendant by, qualified experts. A statement made by the defendant
during an examination ordered by the court shall not be admissible in
the trial on the defendant's guilt.
   (3) At the close of evidence, the prosecution shall make its final
argument, and the defendant shall conclude with his or her final
argument. The burden of proof shall be on the defense to prove by a
preponderance of the evidence that the defendant is a person with an
intellectual disability. The jury shall return a verdict that either
the defendant is a person with an intellectual disability or the
defendant does not have an intellectual disability. The verdict of
the jury shall be unanimous. In any case in which the jury has been
unable to reach a unanimous verdict that the defendant is a person
with an intellectual disability, and does not reach a unanimous
verdict that the defendant does not have an intellectual disability,
the court shall dismiss the jury and order a new jury impaneled to
try the issue of intellectual disability. The issue of guilt shall
not be tried by the new jury.
   (c) In the event the hearing is conducted before the court prior
to the commencement of the trial, the following shall apply:
   (1) If the court finds that the defendant is a person with an
intellectual disability, the court shall preclude the death penalty
and the criminal trial thereafter shall proceed as in any other case
in which a sentence of death is not sought by the prosecution. If the
defendant is found guilty of murder in the first degree, with a
finding that one or more of the special circumstances enumerated in
Section 190.2 are true, the court shall sentence the defendant to
confinement in the state prison for life without the possibility of
parole. The jury shall not be informed of the prior proceedings or
the findings concerning the defendant's claim of intellectual
disability.
   (2) If the court finds that the defendant does not have an
intellectual disability, the trial court shall proceed as in any
other case in which a sentence of death is sought by the prosecution.
The jury shall not be informed of the prior proceedings or the
findings concerning the defendant's claim of intellectual disability.

   (d) In the event the hearing is conducted before the jury after
the defendant is found guilty with a finding that one or more of the
special circumstances enumerated in Section 190.2 are true, the
following shall apply:
   (1) If the jury finds that the defendant is a person with an
intellectual disability, the court shall preclude the death penalty
and shall sentence the defendant to confinement in the state prison
for life without the possibility of parole.
   (2) If the jury finds that the defendant does not have an
intellectual disability, the trial shall proceed as in any other case
in which a sentence of death is sought by the prosecution.
   (e) In any case in which the defendant has not requested a court
hearing as provided in subdivision (b), and has entered a plea of not
guilty by reason of insanity under Sections 190.4 and 1026, the
hearing on intellectual disability shall occur at the conclusion of
the sanity trial if the defendant is found sane.
  SEC. 43.  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, intellectual disability or other developmental disability,
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 14 years of age 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 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.

committed pursuant to Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 1367) of
Title 10 of Part 2 of the Penal Code, judicial review shall be in the
superior court of the county that determined the question
                                 of the mental competence of the

his or her right to counsel by a member of the staff of the state
hospital, developmental center, community care facility, or health
facility and by the court; and if he or she does not have an attorney
for the proceedings, the court shall immediately appoint the public
defender or other attorney to assist him or her in the preparation of
a petition for the writ of habeas corpus and to represent him or her
in the proceedings. The person shall pay the costs of those legal
services if he or she is able.
   (b) At the time the petition for the writ of habeas corpus is
filed with the court, the clerk of the court shall transmit a copy of
the petition, together with notification as to the time and place of
an evidentiary hearing in the matter, to the parent or conservator
of the person seeking release or for whom release is sought and to

not developmentally disabled, or (B) that he or she is
developmentally disabled and that he or she is able to provide safely
for his or her basic personal needs for food, shelter, and clothing,
he or she shall be released within 72 hours. If the court finds that
he or she is developmentally disabled and that he or she is unable
to provide safely for his or her basic personal needs for food,
shelter, or clothing, but that a responsible person or a regional
center or other public or private agency is willing and able to
provide therefor, the court shall release the developmentally

public or private agency, as the case may be, subject to any
conditions that the court deems proper for the welfare of the
developmentally disabled adult and that are consistent with the
purposes of this division.

person with a developmental or intellectual disability, or (B) that
he or she is able to provide safely for his or her basic personal
needs for food, shelter, and clothing, the court shall, before
releasing the person, determine that the release will not pose a
danger to the health or safety of others due to the person's known
behavior. If the court finds there is no danger pursuant to the
finding required by subparagraph (D) of paragraph (1) of subdivision
(a) of Section 1370.1 of the Penal Code, the person shall be released
within 72 hours. If the person's release poses a danger to the
health or safety of others, the court may grant or deny the request,
taking into account the danger to the health or safety of others
posed by the person. If the court finds that release of the person
can be made subject to conditions that the court deems proper for the
preservation of public health and safety and the welfare of the
person, the person shall be released subject to those conditions.
   (d) If in a proceeding under this section, the court finds that
the adult is developmentally disabled and has no parent or
conservator, and is in need of a conservator, the court shall order
the appropriate regional center or the state department to initiate,
or cause to be initiated, proceedings for the appointment of a
conservator for the developmentally disabled adult.
