    In Michigan it may not matter. But you want to get an attorney and see about getting into a diversion program so that you end up with no record. A record for drugs will cause you lots of problems in the future.

    Courts have discretion about how much of the possible penalty to impose, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor is a separate crime in and of itself. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.
