Case No. 22-1521

In Re Detention of Stewart Franklin Schuman

The State appeals a district court order placing respondent, previously committed as a sexually violent predator, in a transitional release program pursuant to Iowa Code section 229A.8A. The State contends the court erred in ordering transitional release because respondent does not have a relapse prevention plan approved by his treatment provider as required by section 229A.8A(2)(d).
