Defendant was found incompetent to proceed on charged violations of the conditions of his supervised release. Defendant appealed his civil commitment by the district court, challenging the sufficiency of the evidence justifying his commitment.
Where mental health experts who assessed defendant and an independent psychological examiner all concluded defendant suffered from a serious mental illness qualifying him for §4246 commitment due to his delusions and paranoia, aggressive behavior and failure to remain medication-compliant, the district court did not err by ordering defendant’s commitment.
Judgment is affirmed.
