Obey the sign: A prosecutor has discretion in filing charges, but the new law does allow a prosecutor to charge a person with a class A misdemeanor for recklessly passing a school bus with its stop arm extended. A Class A misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
