DUI in New York by a Japanese citizen + average time of recovery/likely injuries for driver

Setting (time and place): Modern New Jersey/New York area in Heroes canon, post S1, likely AU.

Search engine and keywords: 1: Google with the searches "drunk driving by foreign nationals," and "DUI in New York." I've read the very informative page on dui.com, and I've searched Wiki for "drunk driving." I also checked this tag http://community.livejournal.com/little_details/tag/usa:+law/government+%28modern%29

2: "car hits tree," "driver hits tree," "tree-vehicle accident" on Google and  http://community.livejournal.com/little_details/tag/medicine:+injuries:+broken+bones .

Nutcracker ballet casting and closing Faerie portals

Two questions of utterly diverging subjects.

1) How likely is it that a (highly talented, aspiring to go pro) 15/16-year-old would be cast as the Sugar Plum Fairy in a production of the Nutcracker? The company is a medium-sized school company. If it's highly unlikely, what parts would she be more likely to get?

2) Regarding "portals" to the land of Faerie- the places like fairy rings and similar areas where a mortal could enter into the otherworld: Is there any folklore prescription on how to close or block them so nobody from either end can go through?
