It varies by state and providence, but in many places, DUI's start out as misdemeanors, not felony charges. This changes if you are driving on a suspended license, if you have kids in the car with you (equals child abuse/endangerment), if you hit something or someone (assault/vehicular manslaughter/criminal damage), or if you are more than twice the legal limit of your BAC. So if she was drinking and driving but nothing beyond that, she may not have been convicted of a felony yet. Many people hire people with misdemeanors. Or she could still have charges pending.
