Chapter 5: MENTAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR CRIMINAL CONDUCT
§103-A. Commitment affected by certain sentences
1.Interruption of commitment.
When a person while in the custody of the Commissioner of Health and Human Services pursuant to a commitment order under
section 103 is found by a court to be in violation of the person's conditional release for a Maine conviction and new institutional
confinement is ordered, or a person commits a Maine crime for which the person is subsequently convicted and the sentence
imposed includes a straight term of imprisonment or a split sentence, the person must be placed in execution of that punishment,
and custody pursuant to the commitment order under section 103 must automatically be interrupted thereby. In the event execution
of that punishment is stayed pending appeal, the commitment under section 103 continues for the stay's duration. The person
must be returned to the custody of the Commissioner of Health and Human Services pursuant to the commitment order under section
103 when the new institutional confinement ordered or the straight term of imprisonment or the unsuspended portion of the
split sentence imposed has been fully served.
