People v. Castagne, A120694

In a conviction for unlawfully possessing methamphetamine, sentence finding defendant ineligible for probation is reversed where: 1) record does not establish that defendant's acts and omissions evinced a complete refusal to undergo treatment; and 2) facts in the present case are subject to conflicting inferences and the lower court never considered the question whether defendant demonstrated a complete refusal to undergo drug treatment.
