Summary as introduced:
Competency and sanity evaluations; location of evaluation. Requires that evaluations to determine whether a person is competent to stand trial or to determine a person's sanity at the time of the commission of a criminal offense be conducted on an outpatient basis at a mental health facility or in jail. Currently, such evaluations are to be conducted on an outpatient basis, but a court may order that a person be hospitalized instead if the court finds the services necessary to conduct an outpatient evaluation are not available or if the results of the outpatient evaluation indicate that it is necessary to hospitalize the person for further evaluation.
