1 fired after sex offender poses as staff, drives bus
D.C. Public Schools officials say that a convicted sex offender posed as an employee and drove a school bus full of children for a week before anybody caught on.
WJLA-TV reported that a human resources staffer allowed the man to drive bus routes between March 15 and March 21, transporting children from D.C. public and charter schools in the area.
A statement issued by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education says that when officials learned that the man didn’t have proper credentials, he was removed.
The man had been convicted of attempted misdemeanor sexual assault.
