Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence

Friends daughter was arrested for being under the influence (drunk driving), carrying a concealed weapon (a switchblade, I assume lockable in its open position), brandishing the weapon, and then threatening the guys who were apparently harassing her.Have read on the internet that her emotional reasons for at least two of these allegations matter to a jury.But we'd like to know what happens at the "pre-trial" and what are her options? Also is there any chance she will be let go with a warning? Somehow, we doubt this, but are the charges likely to be limited to misdemeanors?Any other advice besides hire an attorney sooner rather than latter so that there's time to talk things over with the prosecutor to hopefully reach some sort of an agreement prior to trial?

My step son has a youthful offender record when he was 16, that is supposedly sealed. He applied and took the test for Suffolk County Corrections job, and they are calling him in for orientation as he scored high on the test. He's worried that his youthful offender record can be used against him. Is that likely to come up or is it sealed and not relevant? He's 24 years old now with a clean record since he was 16.
