School bus driver cited for DUI

A public school bus driver is facing the end of his career after being accused of driving under the influence while transporting children. The 64-year-old man is being held in a local county jail pending court proceedings. No trial date has been scheduled yet. If he is found guilty of DUI, he could lose his job and face considerable jail time, fines and/or the loss of his license. 

According to the report, the driver was seen behaving erratically when he arrived at Clara B. Worth Elementary School in  New Jersey on Oct. 17. The school officials apparently investigated, though it is unclear what they did other than remove the man from the bus. Some 30 children were also taken off the bus and moved to another. 

The man reportedly refused to take a breath test, though police suspected he might be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A warrant was issued for a blood sample, the results of which have not yet been made public. The man now faces charges of refusal to provide a breath sample, child endangerment, reckless driving and DUI in a school zone. 

DUI charges are taken very seriously in New Jersey, and even more so when children could be put at risk by an adult's conduct. This driver stands to lose his career as well as his freedom if he is convicted. This is why he will be represented in court by an experienced defense attorney who will work to understand the facts of the case and build a compelling defense against the formal accusations.
