Case Synopsis

A first or second conviction for a category E felony possession of a schedule I or schedule II narcotic under fourteen grams requires the district court to defer conviction when the defendant consents to a drug treatment plan under NRS 176.211(3)(a)(1). When that statute applies, the courts have no discretion; it must defer to a drug rehabilitation program if the defendant consents.
