Ex-Lincoln teacher pleads no contest to drunk driving charge

Posted:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- A former Lincoln high school math teacher has pleaded no contest to driving drunk for the third time.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports 42-year-old Terry Harms, of Cortland, entered the plea Tuesday. The charge stemmed from a December traffic stop, during which Lincoln police smelled alcohol on Harms.

Police say his blood alcohol level registered at 0.165 percent -- more than twice the legal limit to drive in Nebraska.

Court records show Harms was convicted of drunken driving in 2007 and 2011.

He worked as a substitute teacher for Lincoln Public Schools and as a part-time teacher at Lincoln North Star. School district officials say Harms has resigned.

He will be sentenced July 1.
