FORM SUMMARY Name of Form: Form Number: Statutory Reference: Benchbook Reference: Purpose of Form: Order for Competency Examination by DHFS CR-205 §§971.14, Wisconsin Statutes CR 12 To order forensic examination of defendant in criminal case by Department of Health Services (DHS) to determine if defendant is competent to proceed and assist counsel. Circuit Court Judge or Court Commissioner Original to court file, copies to district attorney, defendant/counsel, examiner/examining facility, and sheriff. None. Modification; last update 06/02. Changed Department of Health and Family Services to Department of Health Services (DHS). DHS is funding the competency evaluation program. In the event a person is unable to be examined on an outpatient basis, DHS will continue conducting inpatient examinations at the mental health institutions on a limited basis. This change will shift the focus from DHS routinely conducting exams on an inpatient basis to routinely conducting exams on an outpatient basis. This process will expedite the cases for persons who are incompetent to proceed, and it will also significantly reduce the transport costs to the counties. Each county should develop a procedure to effectuate this change. Questions regarding DHS examinations should be directed to Linda Harris at (608) 267-7909 or Lynne Adolphson at (608) 267-7705. This form is the product of the Wisconsin Records Management Committee, a committee of the Director of State Court's Office and a mandate of the Wisconsin Judicial Conference.
