Teacher arrested on DUI charge while driving to school

Teachers can be impacted by a San Diego DUI.   I have several clients who not only take the punishment from the court and DMV that comes with a San Diego DUI.  Teachers have the potential of the punishment reach their jobs.

There is obvious issues beyond the decision to head to work with an .27% blood alcohol level.  

San Diego DUIs are so unique to me.  It is legal to drink and drive.   DUIs is not like most crimes, which is black and white.  It is a line….that with every sip you come closer to the limit. The result of stepping over the line can be extreme….from someone driving into a checkpoint with a .08% to a .21% BAC and causing major damage.  

Passing this limit has happened long before me.  It will happen long after I am gone from this earth.  Will there ever be a solution?

A high school teacher was arrested and charged with driving under the influence while on her way to school on a Monday morning.

Nancy Vaughn, a 57-year-old reading teacher at a high school in Estero, Fla., was pulled over shortly before 7 a.m. after the Lee County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a car driving erratically near the school, swerving in and out of lanes. Vaughn denied being under the influence of any substances and stated that she was on her way to work.

However, when Vaughn failed a field sobriety test, the officer arrested her on suspicion of DUI. She ended up having Breathalyzer test readings of 0.26 and 0.27, more than three times the legal limit, when she was tested about two hours later, reported the Naples Daily News.

Vaughn is on probation related to a May 2013 DUI to which she pleaded no contest. She received one year county probation and a one-year license revocation as part of her plea agreement, though she was allowed to drive to and from work.
