People v. Castillo, D063266

Defendant's convictions of possessing methamphetamine for sale and being a felon in possession of a firearm are affirmed, where the trial court did not err when: 1) it denied defendant's pretrial request to enforce a negotiated disposition because there was no agreement for the court to enforce and even assuming defense counsel's representation was deficient, the defendant could not establish prejudice; and 2) it denied defendant's motion to suppress evidence of statements he made to police as having been taken in violation of Miranda v. Arizona (1966) 384 U.S. 436 because the defendant was not in custody when, prior to the execution of a search warrant on a residence, a police officer asked defendant two questions while the defendant and two others sat handcuffed in the residence.
