Bus driver sentenced to three years of probation for placing duct tape over the mouth of a seven-year-old disabled girl
A former upstate New York school bus driver has been sentenced to three years of probation for placing duct tape over the mouth of a seven-year-old disabled girl.
Marjorie Jones also will have to perform 100 hours of community service under a sentence handed down Monday by a town justice in Queensbury, on the southern edge of the Adirondacks.
The 63-year-old woman could have spent up to a year in jail for the 2010 incident involving Angelina Kio.
Jones was convicted in May for misdemeanor child endangerment. At the time of the incident, seven-year-old Angelina was heading to the Prospect Child and Family Center from her home in Corinth.
Angelina is unable to speak and has the cognitive abilities of a toddler.
