609.1055 OFFENDERS WITH SERIOUS AND PERSISTENT MENTAL ILLNESS;
ALTERNATIVE PLACEMENT.
When a court intends to commit an offender with a serious and persistent mental illness, as
defined in section 245.462, subdivision 20, paragraph (c), to the custody of the commissioner of
corrections for imprisonment at a state correctional facility, either when initially pronouncing a
sentence or when revoking an offender's probation, the court, when consistent with public safety,
may instead place the offender on probation or continue the offender's probation and require as
a condition of the probation that the offender successfully complete an appropriate supervised
alternative living program having a mental health treatment component. This section applies only
to offenders who would have a remaining term of imprisonment after adjusting for credit for prior
imprisonment, if any, of more than one year.
