A former Mount Prospect school bus driver who admitted she drove a bus full of children while drunk will not serve prison time.

Betty Burden entered a guilty plea earlier this month.

Burden admitted drinking vodka and orange juice before driving 45 children home from Lions Park Elementary School last March.

Wednesday, a judge sentenced Burden to 30 months probation and community service.
