(This amendment provides $253,125 the first year and $506,250 the second year from the general fund for clinical evaluations ($433,500 in FY 2008) and court testimony ($72,750 in FY 2008) related to the civil commitment of sexually violent predators (SVPs). Clinical evaluations are required under § 37.2-904 of the Code of Virginia for sexually violent predators. It is estimated that 289 SVP eligible offenders will be referred to the Clinical Review Committee for psycho-sexual evaluations prior to the state seeking civil commitment; 67% (194) will require an evaluation prior to the state initiating civil commitment proceedings. Each evaluation costs approximately $3,000 and evaluators are paid $750 per day for court testimony.)
