Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Have you shared his mental health history with the prosecutor and with his probation officer? What is your question with regard to this situation?
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
I'm assuming you believe he's a danger to himself or others. You can call the police, who would have the authority to commit him for psychiatric evaluation under those circumstances. If the evaluation confirms that he is indeed a danger, they will keep him and treat him.
If he's incarcerated, then you'd have to inform his lawyer, the prosecutor and probation of his mental history. Any of them they can get the judge to order the commitment if they believe it's necessary.
