Summary

For purposes of eligibility for treatment under Proposition 36 (Pen. Code, sec. 1210.1) findings under the juvenile delinquency proceedings are not “convictions” of a serious or violent felony. Thus, the fact that appellant had been found to have committed a robbery in a delinquency proceeding did not render him ineligible for treatment under Prop 36 when he was later convicted of cocaine possession as a adult.
