Huzzah!  The judge accepted the state hospital‘s recommendation that Brandon is incompetent.  I wonder how often the judge rejects an incompetency recommendation.  If anyone knows, I’d be interested to hear.

Now we wait until a bed opens at the state hospital.  This will be Brandon’s 4th state hospitalization.  I’m hoping things will be different since they’ve had major changes in administration since he was last a patient.  However, since he has multiple criminal charges pending, their only task is to make him competent to stand trial.

They need mental health courts located at the state hospital at his location.  The criminal/incompetency system doesn’t take into account the whole person.  This is partly why they have the revolving door problem.
