People v. McKey, D050554

An order involuntarily committing defendant after jury found him to be a sexually violate predator (SVP) within the meaning of Sexually Violent Predators Act is affirmed over claims that the order should be reversed because: 1) his indeterminate commitment pursuant to the Act violated his federal constitutional rights to due process of law, against ex post facto laws, and to equal protection under the law; 2) the evidence was insufficient to support the finding he is an SVP; and 3) the trial court erred by refusing his proposed modification of a jury instruction.
