Mentally Ill Misdemeanants: An Evaluation of Change in Public Safety Policy

Open Publication PDF

Polly Phipps - January 2004

The 1998 Legislature significantly revised public safety and treatment policies regarding mentally ill offenders charged with misdemeanors by extending the criminal competency restoration process to misdemeanant defendants, broadening the involuntary civil commitment process for both misdemeanor and felony offenders, and strengthening information sharing provisions of the law. The Legislature directed the Institute to evaluate the outcomes of competency restoration and involuntary civil commitment treatment under the new law. This study addresses whether the legislation influenced the process of competency evaluation and whether the main legislative objectives have been met.
