Bus driver gets probation for hurting child with disability
EMMETT, Idaho (AP) — The former Emmett school bus driver accused of dragging a 9-year-old boy on the bus pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and will serve probation.
The Idaho Statesman reports Anna Brown was sentenced this week in Gem County after being accused of physically grabbing and verbally confronting the boy last year.
The judge sentenced Brown to 10 days in jail, but suspended nine of the days. Brown was credited for the one day she served.
She must serve six months of unsupervised probation and do community service.
The child’s mother told the Statesman she thought her child was assaulted and reported the incident to police after seeing the video of the driver.
The boy was a third grader at Shadow Butte Elementary and has some disabilities, including sensory perception disorder.
