Inmates of penal institutions shall not be considered as charged with a
felony within the meaning of this Chapter. Court proceedings under Article

within 90 days prior to discharge of such inmate by expiration of sentence
or otherwise, and if such inmate is found to be subject to involuntary admission,
the order of the court ordering hospitalization or other disposition shall
