School Bus Driver Arrested for Driving Under the Influence

Last Friday in South Carolina, Margaret Means was driving an international school bus when she lost control and crashed. Though she was near a school at the time of the accident, there were no students physically in her bus. In the state of South Carolina the legal limit for drinking and getting behind the wheel is 0.08% and when she was arrested and given a breath test on the scene her blood alcohol concentration levels came to to .17%, twice the legal limit.

Police reports state that at the time of the crash she did not have any students in her car because she had just dropped them off at the local elementary school. She told the arresting officers that she had wine the night before and did not consume any alcoholic substances the morning of the accident. Despite what she said, the police claim that along with her high BAC levels, her eyes were blood shot, her speech was slurred, and the police could smell of the alcohol.

Not only is she facing charges for a DUI, but because there were children in her bus at all that day she now faces charges of child endangerment as well. If convicted this woman could be facing time in jail as well as license suspension and possible fines. If you or someone you know has been accused of driving under the influence, it is imperative that you contact a DUI defense attorney as soon as possible.

Driving under the influence is something that the government takes very seriously, and they are ready to punish the accused to the full extents of the law if convicted. Mistakes happen, and at The Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry we believe that every person deserves a chance to be adequately defended before the court when accused of a crime. If this is you, contact our offices today to discuss your situation and to start taking steps towards fighting your charges.
