§ 3317.1. Documenting Rules Violations in an Alternate Manner for Inmates in the Mental Health Services Delivery System or the Developmental Disability Program.
(a) If the inmate's behavior was so strongly influenced by symptoms of mental illness or developmental disability/cognitive or adaptive functioning deficits at the time the rules violation occurred, mental health staff may recommend via the CDCR Form 115-MH-A that the inmate would be better served by having the behavior documented in an alternate manner. The Captain shall review the Rules Violation Report (RVR) and all other documents and information relevant to the charge, as well as the recommendation offered by the clinician on the CDCR Form 115-MH-A.
(b) Based on his or her review, the Captain shall do one of the following:
(1) If the Captain does not agree with the clinician's recommendation, the Captain shall document his or her reasoning for proceeding with the disciplinary hearing on a CDC Form 128-B. The hearing officer shall proceed with hearing the Rules Violation Report as serious or administrative based on the nature of the specific charge(s). A copy of the CDC Form 128-B shall be attached to the RVR and forwarded to the hearing officer for adjudication. A copy of the CDC Form 128-B shall be issued to the inmate no less than 24 hours prior to a hearing.
(2) If the Captain agrees with the clinician's recommendation, the Captain shall either; reduce the level of the RVR on a Counseling Only Rules Violation Report for minor misconduct, or void the RVR and document the behavior via a CDC Form 128-B.
(c) If the Captain elects to void the RVR the hearing officer shall document the decision via a memorandum and attach a copy to the CDCR Form 1154 (Rev. 03/08), Disciplinary Action Log, which is incorporated by reference.
(d) The Captain shall provide his or her decision and return the RVR and supporting documentation to the hearing officer as soon as possible, but no later than five calendar days from the date of receipt.
