Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

27A-10-7Results of examination--Person released upon failure of examination to meet criteria--Continued detention if criteria met.

If the examination required in § 27A-10-6 does not support a finding that the person meets the criteria for involuntary commitment in § 27A-1-2, the person shall be released. Following such release, the referring county shall provide the person with transportation to the county where the person was taken into custody if the person so chooses. These costs are subject to reimbursement by the county ultimately proven to be the county of residence. No lien may be placed against the person for the transportation expenses. If the chair of the county board finds, as a result of the examination required in § 27A-10-6 and an investigation of the petition for emergency intervention that the person meets the criteria in § 27A-1-2, the chair may order that the person continue to be detained in an appropriate regional facility including, if necessary, the center, pending the hearing required in § 27A-10-8. No lien may be placed against the person for the costs associated with detainment pending the hearing.
