People v. Dean, E041513

Trial court judgment and order committing defendant to the State Department of Mental Health as a sexually violent predator is affirmed where: 1) the court did not abuse its discretion in allowing plaintiff's experts to testify to inadmissible hearsay; and 2) the sexually violent predator law that provides the district attorney with a minimum of two expert witnesses and only provides defendant with one did not violate his due process rights.
