White River Junction, VT – Valley News

The Butler’s Bus Service driver who has been charged with operating a bus full of schoolchildren while having a blood alcohol level above the legal limit had a prior DUI conviction in 2006, and Butler’s knew about it when he was hired.

Carl H. Lupton, 57, of Bethel, pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Windsor Superior Court to a charge of driving under the influence and a misdemeanor charge of child cruelty — placing children under the age of 10 in danger.

Both charges carry a maximum penalty of two years in prison. Lupton did not have to post bail. It’s the second such charge against one of the company’s drivers in the past five months.
