Woman Arrested for Driving With 65 License Suspensions

Janelda Camille, a 23-year-old woman from Medford, Oregon, was adamant about being glued to the driver’s seat despite 65 license suspensions. The Suffolk County Police have now busted the repeat offender who was caught driving along eastbound Sunrise Highway in Patchogue early morning.

According to police reports, officers stopped Camille’s vehicle after she was found speeding about 95 miles an hour near Exit 52. When cops pulled over the 2000 Honda Accord that she was driving, they uncovered her lengthy list of suspensions. They found out the woman had 65 suspensions on 12 dates, including a crash in 2021.

“Officers pulled her over. They ask her for her license. She doesn’t have it,” said Suffolk County Police Commissioner Rodney Harrison. “I’m just glad we were able to stop this individual before she ended up hurting somebody of hurting herself.”

Camille ignored the old summonses and she was forced to give up her license in February. Even though she has more suspensions than people would gather in a lifetime, she still refused to get a lift or use public transit. She had the audacity to get back on the road, which was short-lived with cops catching her for speeding.

Camille has been arrested and charged with “aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree and was also issued a summons for speeding.”

Defense Attorney John Powers represents suspended drivers but he hasn’t got a clue about Camille’s absence. He is curious why she never stepped foot into the courtroom to resolve the outstanding tickets.

“Of course, it could be that they want to thumb their nose at the system, but there also may be an underlying issue with that person,” said Powers.

She has a compulsive urge to warm up the driver’s seat and her 66th suspension might be around the corner.
