VANSVILLE, IN - Lisa Fuller, the EVSC contract bus driver that allegedly allowed a teenager to drive her bus, was sentenced in court on Wednesday.

Fuller pled guilty to a Class 3 misdemeanor charge of allowing a minor to go into a prohibited area only occupied by a driver.

She was fined $50 but she had to cover court costs which brought her total to $214.

Previously, a Class A misdemeanor charge of criminal recklessness had been filled against her but prosecutors dismissed that charge due to lack of evidence that she put someone's life in danger.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Leanne Garbers says that she may have used poor judgment but she doesn't appear to be a threat in the future. If she had been convicted on that charge, she couldn't get a commercial drivers license in the future.

Fuller apologized to the sheriff's office and showed remorse.

According to court documents, since the incident, Fuller has lost her contract with the EVSC and sold her bus.
