Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Civil commitment of sexually violent predators.  Makes numerous changes authorizing the release of various information concerning the offender to the Attorney General, mental health examiners and the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services. The bill provides that the Office of the Attorney General is a criminal justice agency. The bill increases the number of prisoners eligible for commitment by providing that someone who is serving concurrent or consecutive time for a non-sexually violent offense in addition to his time for a sexually violent offense will be assessed for possible commitment. The bill redefines "sexually violent offense" to include the commission of aggravated sexual battery against a person younger than 13 and assures that a committed person who commits a jailable offense will be returned to the custody of the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services.
