The party filing the motion under this subsection shall have the burden of showing by a preponderance of the evidence that the subject no longer poses a threat of harm to others. If it is shown that the subject no longer poses a threat of harm to others, the court shall enter an order dismissing the case and immediately release the subject.

(3) Upon the filing of a motion for a review hearing pursuant to this section, the department shall immediately provide notice to the Attorney General and the county attorney who filed a petition under section 71-1117 if the proceeding by which the subject is placed in court-ordered custody included evidence of a sex offense as defined in section 83-174.01 or if any prior proceedings resulting in a civil commitment or court-ordered custody included evidence of a sex offense as defined in section 83-174.01.
