FELIXSTOWE businessman Peter Whalley who was more than twice the drink-drive limit when his car ploughed into a teenage girl, pinning her against a wall, has been warned that he could be jailed when he is sentenced next month.

FELIXSTOWE businessman Peter Whalley who was more than twice the drink-drive limit when his car ploughed into a teenage girl, pinning her against a wall, has been warned that he could be jailed when he is sentenced next month.

A jury at Ipswich Crown Court took two hours today to find Whalley, 35, guilty of dangerous driving. He had denied the charge.

Adjourning sentence until the middle of October for a pre-sentence report, Recorder Neil Garnham QC told Whalley, "I would make it clear that imprisonment is a very real possibility in the light of what has happened."

Whalley, of Princes Gardens, Felixstowe, admitted drink-driving on the night of the accident in December last year and Recorder Garnham imposed an interim driving ban on him.
