Florida High School Teacher Arrested for DUI While Driving to School

Monday, April 14, a Florida teacher as booked for DUI while on her way to work. It was nearly 7:00 a.m. when reports started coming in of someone driving at unsafe speeds while veering in and out of lanes. An officer arrived and could confirm these reports, and so pulled the driver over. Behind the wheel was a 56-year-old female who denied drinking or using any medication. The officer reported that her eyes looked glazed, and that as she got out of her car, she was imbalanced. She failed field sobriety tests, at which point the officer made a DUI arrest. More than two hours after being pulled over, her breath alcohol level was measured at .258 and .273 in breathalyzer tests.

Any DUI charge is a serious matter, one that threatens a person's whole future. Even a first-time DUI charge could mean months in jail, hundreds of dollars in fines, probation, a lost driver's license, and more. If someone's BAC is said to have been over 0.20, then this could mean:

  • 9 months in jail
  • $1,000 in fines
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device
  • 1 year of driver's license suspension

While other penalties such as probation and community service could be included, the most severe penalty of all is often the criminal record. This threatens a person's current livelihood, their future job prospects, and even their ability to find good housing.
