School bus driver pleads guilty to DUI in New Jersey

A southern New Jersey forty-eight-year-old school bus driver has pleaded guilty for driving drunk with 25 students on board. She has also pleaded guilty for child endangerment. On 28th October, Burlington County prosecutors said the plea agreement calls for defendant to receive a 3-year prison term when she was sentenced in January.

New Jersey DUI defense attorney Joel Silberman1 says, “New Jersey has extremely tough laws for Driving Under the Influence (“DUI”), Driving While Intoxicated (“DWI”) and Refusing to take a Breathalyzer Test.  By Statute, even first time offenders are subject to a mandatory loss of license and potential jail sentences. These consequences can have a devastating effect on a person’s career and family responsibilities.” (Ref: The Law Office of Joel Silberman, LLC,

She was working for a private transportation company when she was arrested in November 2011 while driving students home from Westampton Middle School.

That time many students texted or called their parents to report that she was driving erratically. Then, several parents called school officials, who called the police.
