LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1650, as introduced, Cooper. Sexually violent predators.
Existing law provides for the civil commitment of criminal offenders who have been determined to be sexually violent predators, as defined, for treatment in a secure state hospital facility and the judicial processes necessary for that civil commitment, as specified. Among other requirements, existing law requires a judge of the superior court to review a petition filed for that purpose and determine whether the petition states or contains sufficient facts that, if true, would constitute probable cause to believe that the individual named in the petition is likely to engage in sexually violent predatory criminal behavior upon their release from prison. Existing law authorizes a person who has been committed as a sexually violent predator to petition the court for conditional release, as specified, and if the conditional release is granted, requires the person to be placed in the person’s county of domicile prior to the incarceration, except as specified.
This bill would declare the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation relating to sexually violent predators.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
