A former Kings County resident, had been working as a bus driver for a school in Brooklyn, NY. He had driven his route that day and dropped the children off at Stanley S. Lamm Preschool on Prince Street in downtown Brooklyn. He and the bus matron did not check the bus to see if the were any children still on board. Unfortunately, a young disabled boy was left on the bus. The driver and matron took the bus into a shopping center where passer-bys noticed the unattended child and called police. The boy was taken to a nearby hospital and was found with no injuries. The driver was suspended from the job and arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a minor. He was sentenced this week. He received a misdemeanor of endangering the welfare of a child, time served and mandatory completion of 20 days of community service. Although there didn’t seem to be any intentional desire to do harm, this still is a criminal case based on the negligence involved.
