Procedure for state to obtain mental examination of youth
  • limitations

Upon the filing of a written notice of intent or the introduction of evidence by the youth as provided in ORS 419C.524 (Notice and filing report prerequisite to defense), the state may have at least one psychiatrist certified, or eligible to be certified, by the Oregon Medical Board in child psychiatry or licensed psychologist with expertise in child psychology of its selection examine the youth. Unless the court finds good cause to extend the time, the state must obtain an examination under this section no later than 60 days after the notice of intent was filed or the evidence was introduced. The state shall file notice with the court of its intention to have the youth examined. Upon filing of the notice, the court shall order the youth to participate in an examination. If the youth objects to the examiner chosen by the state, the court for good cause shown may direct the state to select a different examiner. The examiner shall provide a copy of the report generated from the examination to the state. A report generated from an examination under this section is a report relating to the youth’s history and prognosis under ORS 419A.255 (Maintenance) (2). [2005 c.843 §6]
