She needs a good criminal defense attorney to negotiate her case with the prosecutor. She certainly is a good candidate for probation, but hopefully she can keep this off her record. Perhaps the prosecutor would agree to a reduction to a misdemeanor Use/Possession of a Controlled Substance Charge with sentencing under MCL 333.7411 (would allow her to keep off her record if she completes probation successfully). Again, she should hire a good attorney to help her. Best wishes.
