SVP – Pre-Commitment Return to DOC Custody
Issues (Composed by On Point):
- Whether the State may bring a Wis. Stat. ch. 980 commitment petition to judgment when the respondent is in the exclusive custody of the Department of Corrections, such that the mandate of the commitment judgment—assumption of respondent’s custody by the Department of Health Services for control, care and treatment until no longer sexually violent, Wis. Stat. § 980.06—cannot be effectuated.
- Whether such a scheme, which countenances incarceration of a DOC prisoner under a civil “commitment” outside DHS auspices, violates state and federal rights to due process.
