A court has heard how a maths teacher drove his vehicle at almost twice the drink drive limit.
Falconer Dunn, was on his way home from a retirement party when police stopped him and his wife. A breath test revealed Dunn had 69 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.
Dunn, had previously been disqualified for 17 months in 2010 for drink driving as well as being fined £650 and the offer of a drink drive awareness course.
Maidstone Magistrates’ Court heard how Dunn feared the conviction would damage his reputation as a teacher and as a fundraiser. However, he was told that the lengthy three year disqualification would be reduced by a quarter if Dunn agreed to under a further drink driving awareness course.
As well as receiving a three year ban, he was fined £700 and ordered to pay £100 in court costs.
