That would all depend the charge that you are convicted. The FBI has a strict compliance of what crimes make you excluded from employment, however a physical control is a traffic offense and not a criminal offense. You may want to inquire with the FBI about what traffic offenses exclude you from employment.
Always keep in mind that any voluntary statements that you make will be used to investigate and prosecute you. I agree with the two previous responses in that you should seek the advise of an attorney and invoke your Miranda rights.
That's correct, its usually 10% to a bondsman who then posts the bond to get the offender released. If your concerned that the bond is to low, then I would suggest that you contact the prosecuting attorney and state your concerns.
The burden of proof is on the State to demonstrate that you had possession, either constructive or actual possession. The fact that there is evidence of drugs near your window (maybe constructive depending where the window is, house, apt, ect.) and/or DNA evidence (actual possession) may be a tough case to defend. I would definitely seek an experienced criminal defense attorney.
I am assuming that you have a lawyer representing your or your were appointed a lawyer by the court. At the pre-trial conference your lawyer will be able to obtain a copy of the police report (if he/she hasn't done so already) and have a discussion with the prosecutor to see if there can be a resolution of the case before a trial.

If you have any doubts about how to answer the application questions, then I would suggest that you have an attorney look at, especially if you are trying to get into the healthcare field.
Its hard to determine without additional information. We would need to know what your prior criminal history is, what charges you actually plea guilty. It would be best for you to contact an attorney or at the very least ask the court to appoint you a lawyer if you cannot afford one. I think if would be in your best interest and own peace of mind if a criminal defense lawyer talked to the prosecutor and judge to find out if anyone is looking for any jail upon a guilty plea to disorderly conduct.
If you can be properly identified then there is probable cause to arrest and charge you with a crime. However, a conviction has to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. I would need to review the discovery packet to determine if there is enough to sustain a conviction. However, with a jury, anything can happen and a jury could find you guilty if they reasonably find that the loss prevention officer testified truthfully and made a credible identification.
I would agree with the answer above. We would need additional information to determine the right course of action, i.e. motion to vacate plea vs. appeal. Both have specific requirements and time frames.
I would encourage that you contact an attorney to discuss in detail.
