LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (WAVE) – A former Louisville, Kentucky public school bus driver is accused of allowing a 17-year-old boy to have sex with a younger girl on the school bus.
According to an arrest warrant, Kristy Lawrence, 31, “did not make substantial effort to prevent the sexual misconduct and/or sexual abuse of a 12-year-old female.”
The warrant further states that the alleged Aug. 22, 2014 incident happened in the seat directly behind Lawrence’s and that Lawrence knew of the 17-year-old’s intention of obtaining oral sex on the bus.
Police said the 17-year-old had the girl perform oral sex on him, that the incident lasted approximately eight minutes and was captured on surveillance video.
Lawrence was arrested on Saturday charged with third degree sexual abuse and sexual misconduct. She was released on her own recognizance that same day. She is expected in court on Wednesday.
