There is no time frame for a person in custody to be held in a hospital for evaluation. For a non-inmate, 3 days is the most they can be held for evaluation. So the "some one" who said something to you is not likely an attorney or more importantly a psychologist/psychiatrist who knows what they are actually talking about.

These evaluations actually can be done and are done many times in a several hour evaluation by a mental health professional.

This is why the CRS has no provision for minimum or maximum stay.

Thank you for your reply.
I am sorry for your confusion, but you have not paid anything but a deposit and as such the expert has not gotten any credit for time spent with you.

Also, there really is nowhere to go to "find the info" because it is nothing even written in the law about it. So because there is nothing in the law written putting a time period on these matters, this information is developed through actual practicing law and actually handling cases of this nature.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
