School Bus Driver Sentenced with DUI Charge

gumuzA school bus driver from Burlington County has been sentenced after she drove drunk while school children were on board.  Carole Crockett of Shamong will now serve three years in state prison.

According to investigators connected with the case, Crockett’s blood alcohol level at the time of her arrest was three times that of the legal limit of .08.

After Crockett completes her prison term, her license will remain suspended for a period of seven months.

An experienced DUI lawyer will take every step necessary in order to defend clients against the DUI or DUI-related charges that have been filed by the prosecution. For instance, a skilled DUI defense attorney often will file pretrial motions to suppress evidence. Motions to suppress may be based on mistakes and inaccuracies in the gathering of evidence by officers. These motions, when argued successfully, may result in the DUI case being dismissed or the charges substantially reduced.
