If you have been charged with a crime in Metro-Detroit and are a first offender, meaning this is the first offense you have committed (not including non-misdemeanor traffic tickets), you could qualify for a Michigan First Offender Program.
Upon successful completion of a First Offender Program, your case will be dismissed.
If you were under 21 at the time the crime was committed, you may qualify to have your case dismissed under the Michigan’s Holmes Youthful Trainee Act (HYTA) program.
It is important to remember that it is ultimately the judge’s role to determine sentencing an thus it is always the judges decision regarding whether or not you can enter the First Offender Program and get your case dismissed.
If you do not qualify for any First Offender Programs, you may be interested in Expungement
