You should confine your questions to your public defender. You are represented by counsel and we will not say or do anything to second guess that lawyer. If she said you had a good chance then you probably do.
Speak to your public defender. BTW -- in my experience school is given a great deal more weight than work in these matters, so don't let work interfer with school and the GPA.
The response above is not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
The chances are more accurately provided to you by your current attorney than by any of us strangers on the internet.
