MCL 333.7411

 A 7411 deferral allows a person who has no prior drug crimes on their record to plead guilty to a Drug Possession charge, and then have that “guilty” plea and charge dismissed after a certain period of time (called a probation).  Once you satisfactorily complete the probation period your entire case will be dismissed and there will be no public record of it.  The length and term of any probation period are decided by the Judge at your sentencing hearing; and, can range from non-reporting probation to monthly reporting probation with mandatory drug and alcohol testing.  A typical probation term lasts for one year, but Attorney Barton W. Morris, Jr., has had success in negotiating a smaller term.

Benefits of a 7411 deferral include:

-Your entire case will be dismissed.

-There will be no public record of your case.

-You can avoid the mandatory one year license suspension that comes with all drug possession convictions.

-Since the charge never goes on your record, you won’t have to go through an expensive and tedious expungement process to try and get it removed later.

It is important to know that a 7411 deferral cannot be used in delivery, manufacturing, or intent to sell drug convictions.  If you have been charged with a drug crime in the Oakland, Wayne or Macomb County communities of Royal Oak, Bloomfield Hills, Detroit, Warren, Troy, or any surrounding area and want the best defense, call Michigan Criminal Attorney Barton W. Morris Jr., at (248) 541-2600.
