Federal Attorney Pays Fine, Avoids Trial For Passing Bus

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – A senior federal prosecutor in Connecticut who had asked for a trial after being ticketed for passing a school bus has paid the $465 fine.
The Connecticut Post reports the trial was set to begin Tuesday, but Jacabed Rodriguez-Coss paid the ticket in Bridgeport Superior Court. She declined to comment.
Rodriguez-Coss is an assistant U.S. attorney. She had asked for another trial after a state magistrate on June 9 found her guilty of speeding past a school bus on November 13, 2015, while it was stopped in front of a daycare center in Monroe.
A police report said Rodriguez-Coss sped by the bus even though the vehicle’s lights were activated and its side stop sign was displayed.
Online public records didn’t list a phone number for Rodriguez-Coss.
