 In Jackson v Indiana, 406 U.S. 715 (1972), the U.S. Supreme Court held that the person “cannot be held more than the reasonable period of time necessary to determine whether there is a substantial probability that he will attain that capacity in the foreseeable future.” The Court did not dictate what amount of time would be reasonable, leaving that determination to the states. The legislatively authorized time frames are quite variable, ranging from a few months to multiple years. Reference to case decided by the U.S. Supreme court.
