DUI / 3rd DUI / School Bus / School Bus Driver / Drink Driving / Driving Under the Influence / Driver History / Records / Michael A. Haber, Esq. **ARRESTED / **305DUI

A:  Apparently s/he puts in for work in Massachusetts, with the Hopkinton High School, like 59 y/o Robert E. Murphy.

It is unknown whether 'ole Bobby was boozing, doping or both, but, as he was driving the Hopkinton High School cross country team back from a meet at approximately 10:30 p.m. Saturday one of the on board / passenger coaches called 911 stating that the driver was intoxicated.  The local coppers met the bus as it was turning into the school parking lot, and after the 25 team members got off the bus, they conducted a FST's, which they claim Bobby failed.
Not withstanding reading 3 stories online it is unknown how far the bus drove, what relative time during the ride the coach called 911, what the driving pattern was, whether Bobby provided breath, blood or urine and whether he was legally, as opposed to presumably, intoxicated.
What is known is that Bobby had 2 documented prior DUI's, a history of driving loaded, and that still, he was apparently hired and permitted to drive a school bus loaded with kids.  
Memo to the Hopkinton High School District:  I am sure that Bobby is a great guy (certainly someone you'd shoot the breeze with over a few Sam Adams'), but hiring a guy (or a gal) with not 1 but 2 prior DUI's to drive school buses is just plain stupid, not to fail to mention begging for trouble.  
One of the dual edges of technology is the lack of historical privacy.  Although DMV records (especially when it comes to DUI) have always been preserved (in FL anyhow, here in the Sunshine State DUI convictions are not subject to either being sealed or expunged for 75 years, and therefore effectively exist as a permanent entry on your driving forever), 20 years ago you - the School District - may have been able to claim ignorance, but not in today's "internet era", and, even if you could, then you should know that "ignorance is not a legal excuse".  

When it comes to the subject of drinking and driving, the best advice that you are ever going to hear is:  "Don't do it!  ESPECIALLY IF YOU DRIVE A SCHOOL BUS, AND MOST ESPECIALLY IF ITS FULL OF KIDS!  Get a DD (Designated Driver), not a DUI".

Be smart{er than Robert E, Murphy}: Don't drink and drive, but, if you do, just say "NO{thing}", don't blow (in FL your 2nd subsequent refusal is a crime) and call me stat at 305-381-8686, 305-798-2220, **ARRESTED, **305DUI, **MIAMIDUI, **MIAMILAW or **HABERLAW.
