UPDATED Tuesday, July 8, 2014 --- 10:57 a.m.

Dane Co. deputies say a DeForest woman was stopped Tuesday morning and cited for operating while suspended for the 30th time.

Authorities say 24-year-old Leanna Norton passed a traffic team deputy in the Town of Burke around 8:30. The deputy made the stop and learned her driver's license was suspended.

Officials say Norton has paid all of her past fines and is eligible to get her driver's license reinstated on July 17th after paying a reinstatement fee.

The fine for operating while suspended is $200.50 and 3 points.

Officials say all 29 of her prior operating while suspended convictions have occurred since 2011.

Norton was also cited Tuesday morning for no insurance.

Dane Co. deputies say a 23-year-old woman has received her 28th citation for driving with a suspended license.

Leanna Norton was stopped on Stoughotn Road this week. Along with receiving her 28th operating with a suspended license citation, deputies say she was also not wearing a seat belt and did not have active registration.

All 28 of Norton's traffic stops, which have been since June of 2009, add up to more than $5,000.

Officials with the Sheriff's Department say that according to state law, operating while suspended is a forfeiture, and there's no mandatory court appearance. It is not considered a criminal act.

Sheriff's Department officials are checking with the District Attorney to see if there is a way they can charge Norton
