Update III: In addition to yanking Shena Hardin's license for 30 days and forking over a $250, the judge sentenced everyone's favorite a-hole driver to some public shaming. Next Tuesday and Wednesday you can find Hardin at the corner of E. 38th and Payne wearing a sign that reads: "Only an idiot would drive around a school bus." Let's all go keep her company, yeah?

Update II: Shena Hardin's charges stemming from her round-about avoidance of a pesky schoolbus have been reduced to a third-degree felony. She is still an a-hole and prosecutors are still working on sentencing. (19 Action News)
Update: Shena Hardin, the woman who was videotaped driving on a sidewalk to get around that pesky law that says you have to stop for a school bus, was in court yesterday and pleaded not guilty to a citation of not stopping for a school bus. Which there is video evidence of her doing. On the internet. Everywhere. Not guilty.
She's due back in court next month, at which time she's probably hoping the judge will be gone and someone from the NFL's replacement ref crew will be behind the bench. (WOIO)
Driving on a sidewalk to get around the pesky law that says if a school bus is stopped on a two-lane street you have to stop? Yeah, that'll qualify you for A-Hole of the Week. Especially since it's just breaking another law to avoid the first.
Thankfully, the bus driver captured the woman's creative evasive driving techniques on video and got it into the hands of the proper authorities and 19 Action News.
