People v. Sudar, A115464

Order extending defendant's commitment to a state hospital under Penal Code section 1026.5(b) is affirmed over defendant's claims that: 1) his constitutional right to due process was violated by the trial court's failure to instruct the jury that the prosecution was required to prove he had "serious difficulty controlling his dangerous behavior"; and 2) the petition should have been dismissed because it was not filed within the time specified by statute.
