Three Strikes He’s Out?

By Mary Ann

Carnegie Mellon Professor Jeffrey Hunker was charged with three DUIs within an eight-day period between Sunday, August 17 and Sunday, August 24.

According to police, Hunker drove into his neighbor’s yard and hit their house in the first DUI.  His blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit.

Although police officers asked that Hunker be place in jail, the judge felt that the 28-day treatment program the professor entered into on Wednesday, August 27 was sufficient for the time being.

The University hasn’t announced any disciplinary action it will take at the moment.  Hunker’s court date is scheduled for September.
