People v. McKee, No. S162823

By FindLaw Staff on February 01, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In defendant's constitutional challenge to voter-passed Proposition 83, which modified the terms by which sexually violent predators (SVP) can be released from civil commitment under the Sexually Violent Predators Act, trial court's judgment is affirmed in part and reversed and remanded in part where: 1) defendant's due process and ex post facto challenges were without merit; but 2) with respect to an equal protection claim, the state has not yet carried its burden of demonstrating why SVP's, but not any other ex-felons subject to civil commitment, such as mentally retarded disordered offenders, are subject to indefinite commitment.
