Interesting on how the UK handles the mentally ill who commit crimes: they stay in the state hospital until they are sane enough to serve their sentence.
quote: After Selleneit pleaded guilty but mentally ill to attempted manslaughter and use of a firearm by a restricted person in January, he was sentenced to two one to 15-year prison terms, to be served consecutively. Currently he is being held at a state hospital until he is assessed to be sane enough to be sent to prison.
Isn't the practice here that they stay in the hospital and are released if they become "sane?"
