DUI hearing set for former elementary school principal

SELINSGROVE — A preliminary hearing for the former Oaklyn Elementary principal charged with driving with a blood-alcohol level four times the legal limit has been scheduled for Sept. 3.

Holly Ann Judge, 36, of Northumberland, is set to appear before District Judge John H. Reed at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3 in the Selinsgrove office along Route 522.

Judge’s resignation from her $93,244 position was unanimously approved 9-0 without any comments at a June 26 Shikellamy School Board meeting. She had been principal of Oaklyn Elementary School since 2011.

She was charged June 19 with two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence and six summary counts of failure to drive on the right side of the road, failure to drive on roadways laned for traffic, careless driving, reckless driving, failure to have required financial insurance and failure to use proper turn signals.

Judge allegedly had a blood-alcohol of 0.332 percent when stopped on Market Street in Selinsgrove at 11:29 p.m. May 30 when she was observed driving on the wrong side of the rod, according to Trooper Craig Magnuson, of the state police at Selinsgrove.

A driver is considered legally intoxicated in Pennsylvania with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent.

She allegedly begged Magnuson to let her go because she would lose her job and initially refused to submit to a breathalyzer or blood test, according to court documents filed with her arrest.
