The defendant has petitioned the court and is granted a hearing to determine CONREP release. It's my understanding that would first require that the defendant be determined no longer insane and not a danger. I noticed on the state hospital doctor's assessment of the defendant the DA was cc'd. If defendant is determined no longer insane the DA cannot bring those charges back up? Because I know CONREP time does not count towards time served. Also, does the judge have to grant outside (private sector) doctor's assessment if the defendant requests it? Cause we all know those good doctors in the state hospital just want the best for THEIR patients.
