WENTWORTH — A judge has sentenced a 60-year-old North Carolina woman to three years of probation for passing a stopped school bus and striking a 16-year-old boy, killing him.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported Judy Stilwell pleaded guilty Tuesday in Rockingham County. Her six- to eight-month jail sentenced was suspended as long as she completes probation. Her driver’s license was suspended for a year and she was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.

Prosecutors say Stilwell had a clean record before passing the school bus which had its lights on and stop sign out on state Highway 770 and striking Nicholas Adkins as he crossed the street in January.

Stilwell cried in court and her attorney called the incident a lapse in attention.
