SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT SORRY ABOUT DUI- Unintended Consequences

Unintended consequences... it is one of the most appropriate terms for a San Diego DUI. Does someone's decision making need to be scrutinized by their employer if someone gets a San Diego DUI?

A San Diego DUI comes with so many penalties. Some of which happen while the individual walks into court.

Screen Shot 2015-08-25 at 6.47.56 AM.png

I have written in previous articles about DMV license suspensions, San Diego DUI fines, and DUI education courses.

However, today we focus on an individual's job. There are some professions (Nurses, teachers, police) who have to go through a process when receiving a San Diego DUI. Some jobs take it on a case-by-case basis. Should they?

On one hand people would say that individual's decision making is in question and it needs to be determined they should continue with their job. On the other hand, who here has not gone out and had a fun time? Could it be a borderline blood alcohol level and just a drive into checkpoint a few miles from home? Were they even impaired? Has the individual shown any signs of alcohol abuse or bad decision making before? The facts should be taken into consideration and not act with a knee-jerk reaction.

It is a valid argument and a case can be made for both sides. I as an employer would ensure that any criminal charge would be brought to my attention. We then would look over the facts to see if there are any flags.

In any event, the unintended consequences of a San Diego DUI go far beyond the DMV and the courts. It can stretch all the way to your livelihood.

Below is an article on the issue. Have a great day.

The superintendent in charge of schools on the California side of south Lake Tahoe is apologizing for his recent conviction of driving under the influence.

El Dorado County Superintendent Jeremy Meyers was booked into the county jail in Placerville over the weekend after pleading not guilty to charges stemming from the June 9 incident.

David Stevenson of the district attorney's office told Lake Tahoe News he was sentenced to five days in jail.

Meyers said in a statement issued through his attorney that he has accepted responsibility and is personally dealing with his error in judgment.

Meyers was first appointed by the school board to fill the vacant position in 2013. He was re-elected last year when he ran unopposed for a four-year term.
