Guys!!! calm down!!! Seriously. Criminal Law 101: Let's be honest here: a DUI is as bad as a DWI period. Depending on the state or the circumstances, a DUI could be in your records as either a felony or misdemeanor.
So, I don't know what are the circumstances around it, but, if I were an employer, I am afraid I wouldn't risk my company nor my team by hiring someone who has a DUI (which most likely was arrested for it) plus, already has record of driving with an open container (not sure if the person had to do some probation or any classes due that was driving with an open container/alcoholic drink) - This is a CLASS A MISDEMEANOR. To me, if I were responsible looking for the top notch, I would definitely pass on this candidate.
I am not trying to sound rude, I am just trying to be honest. Depending on the state where you are at, determines the chances of you of getting a job with that record.
The thing of second chances, I respect your opinion on that one, however, business is business, you know when you do something wrong, thus you need to be responsible and accountable for those acts, and unfortunately, companies measures candidates based on their past (obviously), education and background (records).
I would highly recommend you to seek for legal advice about this. Also, you can contact the AICPA confidentially and ask for advice, but if you are not conf. with this, then, option 1, legal advice.
I have met so many brilliant people ruining their lives for stupid decisions. A misdemeanor and/or felonies are considered discreditable acts:
The AICPA can suspend or terminate membership for failure to meet continuing professional education requirements, felony criminal convictions, conviction for any part in fraudulent filing of a tax return, or conviction relating to willful failure to file a tax return."
