What's up, /adv/

Several months ago I got pulled over for expired plates and I happened to have weed on me. I got fucked over and the cop charged me for a DUI, possession, and paraphernalia. I blew a 0.000 but stupidly gave up my urine which obviously had weed in it. I have a good lawyer and we're fighting it, but the prosecutor is a fuck and won't cut a deal for reckless driving or something. I'm prepared and braced to take the full punishment and I take full responsibility for my dumb actions.

Anyways, I'm over the "woe is me" stage about this and I'm 100% focused on moving ahead with my life and being successful. I'm entering my last year of graduate school for a social science.

Anyone have experience of getting a white collar job or a job in academia with a record with non-violent misdemeanors on it? My initial plan was to go straight through and do a PhD now, since (from what I can tell) most PhD programs DO NOT do background checks.

At the same time, I would like to make some damn money, which being a career student doesn't really bring. Now I'm looking at academic advising positions and it seems many of those do not directly require a background check.....

Just looking for advice from anyone who has possibly been in a similar position and what career routes/options I have going forward.

I spent the summer working in a building that was under renovation and I worked in close proximity to the construction workers. What they were doing definitely didn't seem "backbreaking", it was mostly just loud if they were using tools. But I'm sure they were making pretty damn good wages, and the higher up guys never did any labor, they just talked on the phone and walked around with clipboards. They were all cool dudes too it seemed like.
