General Sessions and Family Court Mental Health Evaluation Orders – Coversheet
The Competency to Stand Trial Evaluation orders (SCCA 221 and SCCA 487) and the Criminal Responsibility (McNaughten) Evaluation order (SCCA 222) now include a coversheet stating the form orders should not be altered. It is important for purposes of compliance with the statutes as well as timeliness, efficiency and quality control in conducting evaluations that the applicable form order be used exactly as published. The coversheet also includes a reminder for users to submit additional records as required by the relevant evaluation. These form orders, with the new coversheet, are now available on the South Carolina Judicial Department website.
