Assignment 2: Competency Restoration

If criminal defendants are deemed incompetent to face a trial, they have the right to have their competency  restored since they cannot be released without having a trial and they  cannot be held indefinitely without being given the opportunity to  become competent. Accordingly, it is important to state how they will be  restored to competency.
