People v. Ochoa, C059868

Conviction for drug crimes is reversed and remanded where the trial court erred in its determination that defendant's more than two-year-old marijuana possession conviction rendered him ineligible for Penal Code sec. 1000 deferred entry of judgment, as the record of defendant's earlier conviction should have been destroyed after two years and thus not been taken into consideration.
