Another hearing is scheduled for March 6, according to the court’s case calendar. Levy said the judge will “consider the issue of permanent supervision” at the hearing.

They said he suffered from bipolar disorder, was recently homeless and had a large amount of money that could lead to access to potentially life-threatening drugs.
