The bus driver who allegedly got behind the wheel drunk has pleaded no contest. Kenny Mire entered the plea today in Lafayette City Court. Mire was sentenced to a suspended six-month prison sentence and 12 months of supervised probation.
Mire was arrested in September 2009 on the DWI charge. He allegedly drove his own vehicle drunk before getting behind the wheel of his bus. He has been on paid leave since the incident.
