California PC 1026.2, if defendant is released to CONREP before

This answer was rated:

California PC 1026.2, if defendant is released to CONREP before maximum commitment date, can the DA still force defendant to serve remaining time?
Hello,



My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am one of JustAnswer's attorneys. I'll be helping you resolve your matter today.



The DA can't make the defendant do more time - the prison can. Early release in CA is under administrative parole hearings, as defined in 1026.2. If the defendant is released to CONREP early, it is up to the state's correctional organization to determine if he should serve all time, or less of it. Makes sense?

Best of luck in your matter. I'm here if you need any more clarification or follow up info.

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.

The DA can bring the charges up IF the defendant is no longer insane, correct, but in practice, they rarely do. And yes, the DEFENDANT can request a private assessment via Motion in front of the Judge. :)
