People v. Enriquez, C055896

Revocation of defendant's Proposition 36 probation and a resultant prison sentence is reversed where the trial court erred here in revoking defendant' Proposition 36 probation and sentencing him to two years in prison on what had to be treated as only the first petition to revoke his probation. Under the circumstances, defendant's Proposition 36 probation cannot not be revoked, no matter how many violations of probation may be involved, unless the state proves the defendant poses a danger to others.
