Current Bill Summary

CCS/HCS/SB 435 - The Department of Mental Health is authorized to enter into a contract agreement with one or more county jails for the confinement of sexually violent predators. Such persons confined in a county jail shall be housed separately from other offenders.

This act also allows the Department of Mental Health to detain persons, after a probable cause hearing, at a county jail prior to their commitment to the Department of Mental Health as sexually violent predators.

This act allows the Division of Developmental Disabilities to contract directly with providers of targeted case management services for clients of the division in a defined region that has not established a Senate Bill 40 board.

This act is similar to HB 826 (2009) & SB 460 (2009).
