Are there ways around jail time in a second DUI case?
I received my 2nd DUI in 2015 and the case has been pending since. I was trying to negotiate a plea to avoid the mandatory 90 days incarceration, since I have a well paying job, independent living and significantly improved my life since the DUI incident. I cannot afford an attorney and i believe my court appointed attorney is not representing me to the best of her abilities. How likely is a judge to agree to a sentence like house arrest in place of the incarceration?

Can a University withdraw an offer of employment because of a past misdemeanor DUI conviction?
I received a misdemeanor DUI conviction in NY state 2 years ago. NY does not expunge records. I pled guilty, completed all that was asked of me, attended classes, paid all fines. It was a horrible, life-changing experience. I'm still mortified. I now live in Pennsylvania, and recently interviewed for a job at a college. While on campus, I met with a HR representative who went over benefits and I saw that a post-offer background check would be conducted. I did not disclose my conviction at that time. I've recently been offered the position. I don't feel comfortable resigning from my current job if the college will withdraw the offer of employment. Before accepting should I verbally disclose my conviction?
This question is really more about employment law. You should contact an attorney familiar with that area of law. Good luck!
