From local Patch:
JOLIET, IL — A driver’s education teacher police said was found passed out drunk behind the wheel of a driver’s ed car parked outside the main entrance of Joliet Central High School stepped down from his job.
Nestor Nowak, 46, resigned Monday night, said Joliet high school district spokeswoman Kristine Schlismann. Nowak had been on leave.
A Joliet Central employee found Nowak slumped over the steering wheel of a white Ford driver’s ed car the morning of April 6, police said. Fearing that Nowak was suffering from some medical issue, police said, the employee called for an ambulance.
Nowak was taken to Presence St. Joseph Medical Center. A blood draw showed his alcohol content was more than three times the .08 percent legal limit for driving, police said…
Nowak was able to work as a Joliet high school district driver’s ed teacher in spite of pleading guilty to drunken driving in July 2014. He was sentenced in that case to a year of court supervision.
