Finally, the court directs defense counsel to make arrangements for the examination as soon as possible.
Dr. Shields is directed to provide copies of his completed confidential report to the court and to Officer Moore; Officer Moore will transmit confidential copies of the report to counsel prior to hearing. Dr. Shields may submit a bill for his services directly to the Clerk of the Court.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a courtesy copy of this order on Dr. Shields.
