    You will have an opportunity to speak at trial if you are called to the witness stand. Further, you will have an opportunity to speak at sentencing. The assumption is the facts you have to share have already been provided to investigators and the Attorney will then be able to share this on your behalf.

    It is very likely the new company had an affirmative duty to report. Like the previous poster I don't see significant enough damages for a claim to result.

    First take the bar. I am sure you will be able to get over the moral issues more easily then you may think. Secondly, I believe it is going to be much more difficult for you to get a job outside of the legal profession then some others believe. Personally, I found this to be the case. I went to a solid ABA accredited law school in the Midwest. The ability to point to my law school degree was nice bc it gave me a stamp of approval of being intelligent. However, it did not give me the...

    It depends on the employer. It is much better to be upfront and be honest with your future employer then it is to attempt to hide it. My experience has shown me it is much more damaging to not provide disclosure.

    My experience has shown me the courts are actually very reasonable. They may or may not lower the charges but they are definitely more likely to work with. Further, often you can get jail credit for the amount of days you spent in rehab.
