Part 1- Patton State Hospital grounds, CA. On Friday I went on a trip to the Patton State Hospital where a Vietnam combat veteran has been housed for 38 years. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity in 1978. He is 100% disabled and $2,300 of his monthly disability payment goes to the State of California to pay for the cost of his hospitalization. We are going to have a jury trial pursuant to section 1026.5 of the California Penal Code and try to get him released.
