Universal Citation: LA Rev Stat § 15:560.5 (2018)

§560.5. Appeal of decision

A sex offender determined to be a sexually violent predator or a child sexual predator pursuant to the provisions of this Chapter may petition the sentencing court for a review of this determination not more than once every three years, provided that the sex offender is currently receiving treatment from a court, or a treatment provider approved by the Department of Public Safety and Corrections, and good cause for such reconsideration is shown by the sex offender. If the court grants the petition for review, the court shall refer the case to the panel for review in accordance with the provisions of R.S. 15:560.2, and a recommendation to the court for a judicial determination as to whether or not the sex offender continues to be a sexually violent predator or a child sexual predator. After receiving the recommendation of the panel, the court shall schedule a hearing and provide notice of the hearing in accordance with the provisions of R.S. 15:560.2(I). If, after a contradictory hearing, the court finds by clear and convincing evidence, that the offender is a sexually violent predator or a child sexual predator, the offender shall be ordered to comply with the provisions of R.S. 15:560.3 et seq.
