Top Drug Crimes Defense Law Firm
If you are charged in Michigan with a misdemeanor or felony drug charge, felony or misdemeanor, you may be eligible to have your case taken under advisement and dismissed. Under limited circumstances for possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, drug paraphernalia, prescription drugs and other similar offenses, a person charged may request that his or her case be taken under advisement and dismissed upon completion of probation. If a drug charge is taken under advisement, Michigan driver license sanctions and suspension can be completely avoided.
Deferral, Dismissal and Advisement
Michigan Complied Law Section 333.7411 provides that when an individual who has not previously been convicted of an offense relating to narcotic drugs, coca leaves, marihuana, or stimulant, depressant, or hallucinogenic drugs, pleads guilty to or is found guilty of possession of a controlled substance under section 7403(2)(a)(v
), 7403(2)(b), (c), or (d), or of use of a controlled substance under section 7404, or possession or use of an imitation controlled substance under section 7341 for a second time, the court, without entering a judgment of guilt with the consent of the accused, may defer further proceedings and place the individual on probation upon terms and conditions that are provided for in the law.
