NRS 178.463 Conditional release of incompetent defendant committed to custody of Administrator: When eligible; annual review of eligibility for discharge from conditional release; maximum duration.

1. The Division or a person who is committed to the custody of the Administrator pursuant to NRS 178.461 may petition the court which committed the person for conditional release.

2. A person who is committed to the custody of the Administrator pursuant to NRS 178.461 is eligible for conditional release only after:

(a) The Division has completed a comprehensive risk assessment concerning the person;

(b) A decision to release the person from commitment with conditions imposed by the court in consultation with the Division has been made based on input from the person's treatment team, the prosecuting attorney, the counsel for the person and the team that will supervise the person in the community; and

(c) The court which committed the person has approved the conditional release.

3. If a person is serving a period of conditional release pursuant to this section, the court must, at least once every 12 months, review the eligibility of the defendant for discharge from conditional release. If, at the conclusion of the review required by this subsection, the court finds by clear and convincing evidence that the person no longer has a mental disorder and that the person is not a danger to himself or herself or others, the court must discharge the person from conditional release.

4. The length of the period of conditional release must not exceed 10 years, including any time that the person has been committed to the custody of the Administrator pursuant to NRS 178.461 and 178.464.
