Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Sexually Dangerous Persons Act. Provides that the examination to determine whether a person is sexually dangerous shall be conducted by 2 qualified evaluators (rather than 2 qualified psychiatrists). Defines "qualified evaluator" and "examination". Provides that "criminal propensities to the commission of sex offenses" means that it is substantially probable that the person subject to the commitment proceeding will engage in the commission of sex offenses in the future if not confined. Provides that the cost of representation by counsel for an indigent respondent shall be paid by the county in which the proceeding is brought. Provides that the socio-psychiatric report shall be prepared by an evaluator approved by the Sex Offender Management Board (rather than by a social worker and psychologist under the supervision of a licensed psychiatrist assigned to the institution where the applicant is confined). Provides that if a person has previously filed an application in writing showing that the sexually dangerous person or criminal sexual psychopathic person has recovered and the court determined at a hearing or following a jury trial that the applicant is still a sexually dangerous person, or if the application is withdrawn, no additional application may be filed for 2 years (rather than one year) after a finding that the person is still sexually dangerous or after the application is withdrawn, except if the application is accompanied by a statement from the treatment provider that the applicant has made exceptional progress and the application contains facts upon which a court could find that the condition of the person had so changed that a hearing is warranted. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces requirement that an evaluator be approved by the Sex Offender Management Board with the requirement that the evaluator be licensed under the Sex Offender Evaluation and Treatment Provider Act.
