Summary

Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 and the Unified Code of Corrections concerning defendants found unfit to stand trial and found not guilty by reason of insanity. Provides that if the court orders the defendant placed in the custody of the Department of Human Services, the Department shall evaluate the defendant to determine to which secure facility the defendant shall be transported and, within 7 days of the entry of the placement order, notify the sheriff of the designated facility. Upon receipt of that notice, the sheriff shall promptly transport the defendant to the designated facility. Provides that if, within 7 days of the entry of the placement order, the Department fails to notify the sheriff of the identity of the facility to which the defendant shall be transported, the sheriff shall notify the Department that the defendant will be transported to the nearest secure mental health facility operated by the Department unless, within 24 hours of receiving the notice, the Department notifies the sheriff that the defendant should be transported to another facility. Provides that if, during this 24-hour period the Department notifies the sheriff of another facility, the sheriff shall transport the defendant to that facility. If the notice is not received, the sheriff shall transport the defendant to the nearest secure mental health facility operated by the Department.
