OSWEGO, NY – The former Hannibal bus driver who was accused of having sexual intercourse with a teenager has been sentenced to prison time.
Jeanine M. Buske, 33, of 30 Hamilton Homes, Oswego, was originally arrested May 14 and charged with two counts of third-degree rape, a class-E felony, and three counts of endangering the welfare, a class A misdemeanor.
Police said an investigation revealed that Buske had sexual intercourse with a 16-year-old boy on multiple occasions and at multiple locations within the city of Oswego. On at least one occasion, Buske reportedly allowed a 15-year-old boy to witness the act.
She was also charged with one misdemeanor count each of third-degree forgery; second-degree criminal impersonation; and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly portraying herself as the mother of a 16-year-old boy to authorize a business in the city of Oswego to pierce the tongue of the child.
Buske was arrested again June 21 and charged with second-degree criminal contempt after she reportedly drove by the occupants of a residence and shouted to an individual, in violation of a stay away order of protection.
By way of Superior Court Information, Buske pleaded guilty to third-degree rape in satisfaction of the contempt and endangering charges against her in the city of Oswego, according to Assistant District Attorney Gregory Oakes. She was sentenced Oct. 3 in Oswego County Court to 1-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â½ to 3 years in state prison.
Oakes said Buske was also sentenced to three years post-release supervision and will be required to register as a sex offender. A stay away order of protection for the victim will be valid for 12-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â½ years from the date of BuskeÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s sentencing.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œThe legislation was modified in felony cases,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â Oakes said. He explained that orders of protection in felony cases are valid for eight years, plus the amount of time a person receives for a prison sentence and probation.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œThe victimÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s parents were satisfied by the disposition and outcome,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â Oakes noted.
According to a spokesperson for the sheriffÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s office, Buske is presently in custody at the Oswego County Correctional Facility, awaiting transfer to a state facility.
