If the inmate alleges in the petition that he or she has an extraordinary health condition, the inmate shall attach to the petition affidavits from 2 physicians setting forth a diagnosis that the inmate has an extraordinary health condition.
(cm) If, after receiving the petition under par. (c), the program review committee determines that the public interest would be served by a modification of the inmate's bifurcated sentence in the manner provided under par. (f), the committee shall approve the petition for referral to the sentencing court and notify the department of its approval. The department shall then refer the inmate's petition to the sentencing court and request the court to conduct a hearing on the petition. If the program review committee determines that the public interest would not be served by a modification of the inmate's bifurcated sentence in the manner specified in par. (f), the committee shall deny the inmate's petition.
(d) When a court is notified by the department that it is referring to the court an inmate's petition for modification of the inmate's bifurcated sentence, the court shall schedule a hearing to determine whether the public interest would be served by a modification of the inmate's bifurcated sentence in the manner specified in par. (f). The inmate and the district attorney have the right to be present at the hearing, and any victim of the inmate's crime has the right to be present at the hearing and to provide a statement concerning the modification of the inmate's bifurcated sentence. The court shall order such notice of the hearing date as it considers adequate to be given to the department, the inmate, the attorney representing the inmate, if applicable, and the district attorney. Victim notification shall be provided as specified under par. (g).
(e) At a hearing scheduled under par.

(f) would serve the public interest. If the inmate proves that a modification of the bifurcated sentence in the manner specified in par. (f) would serve the public interest, the court shall modify the inmate's bifurcated sentence in that manner. If the inmate does not prove that a modification of the bifurcated sentence in the manner specified in par. (f) would serve the public interest, the court shall deny the inmate's petition for modification of the bifurcated sentence.
(f) A court may modify an inmate's bifurcated sentence under this section only as follows:

The director of state courts shall provide the cards, without charge, to clerks of circuit court. Clerks of circuit court shall provide the cards, without charge, to victims. Victims may send completed cards to the clerk of the circuit court for the county in which the inmate was convicted and sentenced. All court records or portions of records that relate to mailing addresses of victims are not subject to inspection or copying under s. 19.35 (1).
(h) An inmate may appeal a court's decision to deny the inmate's petition for modification of his or her bifurcated sentence. The state may appeal a court's decision to grant an inmate's petition for a modification of the inmate's bifurcated sentence. In an appeal under this paragraph, the appellate court may reverse a decision granting or denying a petition for modification of a bifurcated sentence only if it determines that the sentencing court erroneously exercised its discretion in granting or denying the petition.
(i) If the program review committee denies an inmate's petition under par. (cm), the inmate may not file another petition within one year after the date of the program review committee's denial. If the program review committee approves an inmate's petition for referral to the sentencing court under par. (cm) but the sentencing court denies the petition, the inmate may not file another petition under par. (cm) within one year after the date of the court's decision.
(j) An inmate eligible to seek modification of his or her bifurcated sentence under this subsection has a right to be represented by counsel in proceedings under this subsection.
