9the Department of Human Services for an evaluation as to
10whether he is in need of mental health services. The order
11shall specify whether the evaluation shall be conducted on an
12inpatient or outpatient basis. If the evaluation is to be

14in a secure setting. With the court order for evaluation shall
15be sent a copy of the arrest report, criminal charges, arrest
16record, jail record, any report prepared under Section 115-6 of
17the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963, and any victim impact
18statement prepared under Section 6 of the Rights of Crime
19Victims and Witnesses Act. If the court orders that the
20evaluation be done on an inpatient basis, the Department shall
21evaluate the defendant to determine to which secure facility
22the defendant shall be transported and, within 7 days of the

14notice is not received, the sheriff shall transport the
15defendant to the nearest secure mental health facility operated
16by the Department. Individualized placement evaluations by the

21Upon completion of the placement process the sheriff shall be

3basis; (b) in need of mental health services on an outpatient
4basis; (c) a person not in need of mental health services. The
5Court shall enter its findings.

17Department of Human Services, shall be placed in security
18devices or otherwise secured during the period of
19transportation to assure secure transport of the defendant and
20the safety of Department of Human Services personnel and

23Code. If the defendant is found to be in need of mental health
24services, but not on an inpatient care basis, the Court shall
25conditionally release the defendant, under such conditions as

18defendant would have been required to serve, less credit for
19good behavior as provided in Section 5-4-1 of the Unified Code
20of Corrections, before becoming eligible for release had he
21been convicted of and received the maximum sentence for the

3 (i) If within the period of the defendant's conditional
4release the State's Attorney determines that the defendant has
5not fulfilled the conditions of his or her release, the State's
6Attorney may petition the Court to revoke or modify the
7conditional release of the defendant. Upon the filing of such
8petition the defendant may be remanded to the custody of the
9Department, or to any other mental health facility designated
10by the Department, pending the resolution of the petition.
11Nothing in this Section shall prevent the emergency admission
12of a defendant pursuant to Article VI of Chapter III of the
13Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code or the
14voluntary admission of the defendant pursuant to Article IV of
15Chapter III of the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities
16Code. If the Court determines, after hearing evidence, that the
17defendant has not fulfilled the conditions of release, the
18Court shall order a hearing to be held consistent with the
19provisions of paragraph (f) and (g) of this Section. At such
20hearing, if the Court finds that the defendant is in need of
21mental health services on an inpatient basis, it shall enter an
22order remanding him or her to the Department of Human Services
23or other facility. If the defendant is remanded to the
24Department of Human Services, he or she shall be placed in a
25secure setting unless the Court determines that there are
26compelling reasons that such placement is not necessary. If the

HB0649- 19 -LRB100 06743 RLC 16784 b
1Court finds that the defendant continues to be in need of
2mental health services but not on an inpatient basis, it may
3modify the conditions of the original release in order to
4reasonably assure the defendant's satisfactory progress in
5treatment and his or her safety and the safety of others in
6accordance with the standards established in paragraph (D) of
7subsection (a-1). Nothing in this Section shall limit a Court's
8contempt powers or any other powers of a Court.
9 (j) An order of admission under this Section does not
10affect the remedy of habeas corpus.
11 (k) In the event of a conflict between this Section and the
12Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code or the Mental
13Health and Developmental Disabilities Confidentiality Act, the
14provisions of this Section shall govern.
15 (l) This amendatory Act shall apply to all persons who have
16been found not guilty by reason of insanity and who are
17presently committed to the Department of Mental Health and
18Developmental Disabilities (now the Department of Human
19Services).
20 (m) The Clerk of the Court shall transmit a certified copy
21of the order of discharge or conditional release to the
22Department of Human Services, to the sheriff of the county from
23which the defendant was admitted, to the Illinois Department of
24State Police, to the proper law enforcement agency for the
25municipality where the offense took place, and to the sheriff
26of the county into which the defendant is conditionally

HB0649- 20 -LRB100 06743 RLC 16784 b
1discharged. The Illinois Department of State Police shall
2maintain a centralized record of discharged or conditionally
3released defendants while they are under court supervision for
4access and use of appropriate law enforcement agencies.
