York transient sentenced to probation for third offense, aggravated DUI

YORK – Scott Weller, 39, who is listed in court documents as being a transient in York County, has been sentenced to probation for third offense/aggravated DUI.

He was sentenced 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 The deputy soon found Weller’s driver’s license had been revoked.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. While this was initially a fourth DUI offense, that was amended as part of a plea agreement.

This week, in York County District Court, he was sentenced for a Class 3A felony. He was sentenced to three years of probation. He was also sentenced to 60 days of immediate jail, but was given credit for 60 days already served. He was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and his driver’s license was revoked for 15 years.

The court also ordered he must be on continuous alcohol monitoring throughout the duration of his probation period.
