Name: People v. A.C.
Case #: C097078
Opinion Date: 11/15/2023
Attorney: Conness Thompson

The trial court found appellant incompetent to stand trial and committed him to the Department of State Hospitals for a maximum term of three years. The Court of Appeal agreed with appellant’s argument that Penal Code section 1370 only permits a maximum commitment of two years for competency restoration, and reduced his maximum commitment accordingly.
