Sec. 1030. (1) Upon receipt of the written report, the court shall cause the defendant to appear
in court and shall hold a hearing within 5 days or upon the conclusion of the case,
proceeding, or other matter then before it, whichever is sooner, unless the defense
or prosecution for good cause requests a delay for a reasonable time.
(2) On the basis of the evidence admitted at the hearing, the court shall determine
the issue of the incompetence of the defendant to stand trial. If the defendant is determined incompetent to stand trial, the court shall also
determine whether there is a substantial probability that the defendant, if provided
a course of treatment, will attain competence to stand trial within the time limit
established by section 1034. 1
(3) The written report shall be admissible as competent evidence in the hearing, unless
the defense or prosecution objects, but not for any other purpose in the pending criminal
proceeding. The defense, prosecution, and the court on its own motion may present additional
evidence relevant to the issues to be determined at the hearing.
(4) If the defendant is receiving medication and is not determined incompetent to
stand trial, the court may, in order to maintain the competence of the defendant to
stand trial, make such orders as it deems appropriate for the continued administration
of such medication pending and during trial.
