Who will watch the terminally crazy?

State says developmentally disabled violent offender is too difficult to house:

The motion for amending the conditions of Sumner’s release was prompted by the fact that DAIL, the state agency that supervises developmentally disabled offenders found incompetent to stand trial, recently told the court it will no longer provide services for Sumner.Sumner has twice been committed under Act 248, which provides that developmentally disabled individuals who have been charged with violent crimes, who likely committed those crimes and have been found incompetent to stand trial, be held in the custody of the commissioner of DAIL indefinitely, even though they have not been convicted.
