  • CPCS SDP SORB
    Welcome to the Committee for Public Counsel Services’ SDP/SORB Counsel egroup - a meeting place for defense counsel in "sexually dangerous person" commitment and SORB proceedings. We encourage you to actively participate in the group by sharing documents and practice suggestions with your colleagues.  Please note that we make every effort to restrict membership to defense counsel but, as with any exchange of information online, *we cannot guarantee the security of your postings*.  Also, in order to provide a useful service to our membership, we require postings to be professional and relevant to these practice areas.  We look forward to sharing ideas with you and welcome your participation.
