You always want to seek a lower charge in exchange for a plea. In your situation, that would mean anything less than a Level 4 Possession felony. You should sj\hoot for the very lowest felony, if not a high misdemeanor, in exchange for a plea.
Next, sometimes even more important than what you plea guilty to is the type of sentence that you receive.
1. A straight conviction is exactly that. It will show on your criminal information record forever.
2. A deferred sentence is where you plea guilty, but the court does not sentence you at all. A deferred does appear on your record but not as a conviction, (if you successfully complete all probation terms).
3. A conditional discharge is where the court does not even accept a guilty plea. The court merely takes the matter under advisement, and if you satisfy probation, the entire matter is dismissed. In this one, you never have a entry on your criminal information.
So, you have two essential considerations: (1) the charge you end up entering a plea, and (2) the type of sentence or disposition.
Since you do not have any priors, you will almost certainly receive probation. The trick is to find the right attorney who will either get the casedismissed or work upon a lesser charge and favorable disposition.
Does that clear up my answer?
