People v. Lowe, D060048

Trial court's order committing defendant to the California Department of Mental Health for treatment and confinement in a secured facility for an indeterminate term under the Sexually Violent Predators Act, is affirmed where the expert testimony did not invade the jury's province as the experts properly utilized statutory criteria to frame their opinions and they did not cross the line from testifying about the bases for their opinion to advocating for a particular outcome.
