The detention was given for repetitive misbehaviour rather than the <latest one>.

Dear all,

I want to explain that the detention was given for repetitive misbevaiour rather than only for the last time the student misbehaved.

For example, a detention was given because the students talked more than three times in class, not only for his latest misbehaviour.

Is the sentence correct and express this meaning? If not, how can I express this idea?

Thank you!
