Fashion Designer Tala Alamuddin Le Tallec, the older sister of human rights lawyer Amal Clooney (wife of George Clooney) is about to serve jail time for drunk driving. She pleaded guilty to charges that included drunk driving and driving without insurance. She has received three weeks of jail time for her offenses.
A resident of Singapore Tala Alamuddin Le Tallec has also be fined $6.400 and her license has been revoked for four years. She had three times the legal amount of alcohol in her system upon arrest. The test found that she had 95 micrograms (mcg) of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath–almost triple the prescribed limit of 35mcg of alcohol in 100ml of breath. The arrest happened at a police roadblock at around 2:30 a.m. When stopped, the 47 years old lady had trouble locating the car’s handbrake and momentarily stepped on the gas pedal as she searched for her driver’s license.
Shashi Nathan, Le Tallec’s lawyer has said she is genuinely remorseful and knows she has made a terrible mistake. This is not the first time Le Tellec has been caught drunk driving. According to sources she has a history of driving offenses. She was barred from driving for two years following a drunk driving conviction in 2013. Also in 2010 she has been charged with careless driving and in 2004 for inconsiderate driving.
Le Tallec has worked as an events partner before starting Totally Tala, a fashion line.
