B.V., Respondent and Appellant
- Case Type
- CIVIL APPEAL : CIVIL COMMIT OF SEXUAL PREDATOR
- Appeal From
Case No. 04-R-00461
South Central Judicial District, Burleigh County
Bruce B. Haskell
An order committing a sexually dangerous individual will be affirmed unless it is induced by an erroneous view of the law or it is not supported by clear and convincing evidence.
In a commitment proceeding, an indigent respondent entitled to appointment of an independent examiner does not have the right to choose a specific examiner.
When the commitment proceeding is not held within the statutorily required sixty days, the case will not be dismissed if the delay was caused by the respondent's actions.
A competent party in a civil commitment proceeding who wishes to represent himself cannot be coerced into accepting appointed counsel where there is a clear request for self-representation.
