People v. Hernandez, F060971

In an appeal from an order for recommitment on the basis of Penal Code sections 2970 and 2972, judgment is affirmed because the district attorney's statutory authority to file a petition under section 2970 is not conditioned on a finding by the medical director that the prisoner is dangerous or on a recommendation by the medical director for recommitment.
