Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963 concerning unfit defendants. Provides that if the report to the court, the State, and the defense indicates that the defendant is not fit to stand trial or to plead because of a disability, the report shall include an opinion as to the likelihood of the defendant attaining fitness within a period of time from the date of the finding of unfitness (rather than one year) if provided with a course of treatment. Provides that for a defendant charged with a felony, the period of time shall be one year. Provides that for a defendant charged with a misdemeanor, the period of time shall be no longer than the maximum term of imprisonment for the most serious offense. Provides that not more than 30 days after admission and every 90 (rather than 60) days thereafter so long as the initial order remains in effect, the facility director shall file a treatment plan report in writing with the court and forward a copy of the treatment plan report to the clerk of the court, the State's Attorney, and the defendant's attorney, if the defendant is represented by counsel, or to a person authorized by the defendant under the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Confidentiality Act to be sent a copy of the report. Effective January 1, 2018.
