Tilley v. United States, No. 15- CO-38 (D.C. Ct. App. 2020)
Nature of Case: Appellant was indefinitely civilly committed under the District of Columbia’s first-generation ‘sexual psychopath’ statute. Appellant appealled his civil commitment, arguing that the statute could not comport with Due Process and was unconstitutional both as-applied and facially.
Holding: The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia held that, both as applied and facially, the District’s ‘sexual psychopath’ statute violated Due Process.
