Former Idaho school bus driver sentenced for injuring student

April 5, 2019

EMMETT — A former Emmett school bus driver who assaulted a 9-year-old special needs student was sentenced Thursday.

Anna Brown, who was charged in August following a three-month investigation of the incident, was sentenced to 10 days in jail. Nine of those days are suspended though, according to the Idaho online courts repository.

Brown assaulted the student while attempting to get the student to comply with a seating request, according to a previous Emmett Messenger Index report. The police investigation was spurred by a complaint filed by the student’s parent after having viewed a video of the incident taken by an on-bus camera. Brown resigned from her position before complaints were filed with the Emmett Police Department.

She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor injury to a child. Brown will be on unsupervised probation for six months and has to complete community service by Sept. 25, according to the repository.
