Highlight

Absent a petition for discharge, a committed sexually dangerous individual does not have a right to a discharge hearing.
A district court's decision to hold a hearing following its review of the annual reevaluation reports regarding a committed sexually dangerous individual's mental condition is a matter of discretion and is therefore subject to an abuse of discretion standard of review.
