UPDATE ON BUS DRIVER PAMELA LESLIE WILLIE DUI ARREST
On Nov. 5, 2015, Pamela Leslie Willie was operating a school bus while intoxicated. She was arrested and charged with 19 counts of negligent driving, driving a school vehicle without appropriate medical certificates, failing to use warning lights, consuming alcohol in passenger area of a motor vehicle, DWI, driving impaired in a commercial vehicle, and related charges in Baltimore County Circuit Court. With a taxpayer-provided a free
attorney, Donald Zaremba, she went to trial on Jan. 20, 2016. Willie was found guilty of DWI and operating a commercial vehicle while impaired. She was fined $200 and sentenced to one year in jail with eleven months and ten days suspended. The States Attorney agreed to home detention for the twenty days of incarceration.
Court records also reflect the following conditions: Defendant not to drive a commercial vehicle while on probation. Defendant to submit to mental health treatment at New Vision Center. Submit to drug and alcohol testing, treatment and evaluation as recommended. Attend Shock Trauma Tour and attend one MADD Victim Impact Panel. Submit to random urinalysis and abstain from drugs and alcohol and abuse of prescription drugs. Court costs and supervision fees are waived.
All of the remaining charges were dropped by the prosecutor. Court records show that on March 25, 2016, the case was reopened due to a violation of the terms of the probation.
Thus, the Baltimore County States Attorney Scott Shellenberger bent over backward to allow a bus driver who had not a care in the world about driving a bus full of children while snookered – to avoid jail instead of cooling her jets in a cell for at least a month.
