Transient to be sentenced for third offense DUI

YORK – Scott Weller, 39, who is listed in court documents as being a transient in York County, has pleaded no contest to third offense driving under the influence. A second charge of second offense driving under revocation due to prior DUIs has been dismissed.

He changed his plea this week in York County District Court.

According to court documents, a deputy with the York County Sheriff’s Department was on regular patrol when he saw a vehicle without license plates which failed to stop at a stop sign. A traffic stop was initiated.

The deputy says in his affidavit Weller got out of the vehicle, despite being commanded to stay inside. And the deputy said he could smell alcohol on Weller. The deputy soon found Weller’s driver’s license had been revoked.

Initial testing, according to court documents, indicated his blood alcohol level was .269, which is more than three times the legal limit.

It was noted in court documents, he had prior convictions of driving under the influence in Douglas and Platte Counties, as well as a prior conviction of driving under revocation in Platte county.

Now that he has pleaded no contest, he will be sentenced on April 29 for a Class 3A felony.
