Hi. It will be my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Under Michigan law MCL 750.448 and 451, soliciting is a misdemeanor
punishable by imprisonment for not more than 93 days or a fine of not more than $500.00, or both, for a first offense.
If your concern is avoiding a criminal record, then Pre-Trial
Diversion (PTD) may be an option you want to look into. Michigan offers PTD on a regular basis in cases where a criminal
defendant has little or no prior criminal history.
A pretrial diversion (PTD) or pretrial intervention (PTI) is an agreement with the prosecutor to delay action on a criminal case for a specified time period, usually six months to a year, during which the defendant agrees to stay out of trouble and possibly complete additional requirements, such as completion of drug or alcohol counseling or rehabilitation, where appropriate. At the end of that time, the charge is dismissed. This may be what the officer was referring to.
Please feel free to ask any follow-up questions.
