Outgoing Governor Bob McDonnell has released a set of recommendations following a review of a recent tragedy that involved an area lawmaker’s family. The Governor (pictured) favors extending the time limit for an emergency commitment order beyond the current six hours. That would happen if someone meets the criteria for a temporary detention order. State Senator Creigh Deeds was stabbed by his 24-year-old son during a November 19th fight at their Bath County home. It happened after no psychiatric beds could be found in a nearby private facility. Gus Deeds took his own life a short time later. Senator Deeds has publicly held the Rockbridge County Community Services Board responsible for his son’s death.
