People v. Galvan, B192308

Revocation of defendant's probation stemming from his conviction for burglary and possession of a controlled substance is reversed where there was insufficient evidence to sustain revocation based on defendant's reentry into the U.S., and his failure to report to the probation department did not constitute a willful probation violation because the federal government deported defendant to Mexico immediately upon his release from county jail.
