Rebecca Hansell, 33, drink-driving primary school teacher, avoids jail despite giving ‘frighteningly high’ breath test more than four times the limit after she left work and necked alcohol in her car

Scandalous leniency, because woman. An extract:

Giving her a 12-week prison sentence suspended for 18 months, District Judge Paul Currer said: ‘You could have been responsible for another family’s experience of bad news as a result of a collision or loss of life. It’s an exceptionally serious offence. [J4MB: he could have continued, “… but you’re a woman so you won’t be punished.”]

‘The reading is an extremely high one – it’s frighteningly high. I’m staggered you were able to control the vehicle at all. 

‘You left your place of work and started drinking in the car and then went to the shop to buy some more alcohol and continued drinking. It’s clear to me that the custody threshold has been passed.’
