(D)  Immediate State Rehabilitative Relief.  For example, obtaining a sentence to a very short period of probation may enable the client in some states immediately to qualify for state rehabilitative relief which will be effective in the Ninth Circuit in eliminating a conviction of first-offense simple possession of a controlled substance for immigration purposes.  See § § 11.17, ff., infra.
