Maybe it’s in there, I don’t know – I don’t have the time to check (bla bla bla Maxapalooza and all) but when you finish reading this definition, you should be adding, audibly, AS DETERMINED BY….????
Here are some of the terms related to people with mental illnesses that Ohio will strike from state law and the phrases that will replace them:
Lunatic: Replaced with “incompetent person”
Idiot: Replaced with “incompetent person”
Mental derangement: Removed
Habitual drunkard: Removed
Insane: Replaced variously with “incompetent,” “unable to testify,” “dangerous to the community due to a mental illness,” and “a person with a mental illness that causes the person to be dangerous to the community.”
Insanity: Replaced with “grounds for incompetency” or “mental illness”
The law defines “incompetent person,” where it is used, as someone who is so mentally impaired as a result of mental or physical illness or disability, mental retardation, or chronic substance abuse that they are incapable of taking care of themselves, their property or their family.
The PD lists the source of the above info as the Ohio Legislative Service Commission. Again, they need to add one line – either the OLSC does or the PD – that indicates who is the individual or entity responsible for submitting this determination that someone is an incompetent person for the purposes of the laws that now refer to such people and say that such people who’ve been to be so determined can or cannot do whatever it is the law says.
