Drug Crimes and Penalties

Michigan Drug Cases and 7411 Status

You may have heard about "7411 status" if you are charged with a drug crime. This refers to MCL 333.7411, which states that a person charged with a first-time drug offense for possession or use of a controlled substance may have that charge taken under a deferral status. If you successfully complete and comply with the terms and conditions of probation, the charge is dismissed. A non-public record is maintained by the Michigan State Police for purposes of ensuring that a person does not use the protections extended by 333.7411 more than one time. 

License Sanctions for Drug Crime Conviction

If you are charged and convicted of a drug crime, you face mandatory licensing sanctions. You do not need to be operating a motor vehicle for this sanction to apply in your case. I have a client who was convicted of simple possession of marijuana when he was 12 years old. While the drug crime was expunged from his juvenile record, a review of his driving record reveals that he was convicted of this offense. The Michigan Secretary of State issued him a driver's license four years before he eligible for a driver's license.
