The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety forwarded the case to the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor's Office with the recommendation that the driver face a misdemeanor of leaving a child alone in a vehicle.

The driver no longer works for Kalamazoo Public Schools.

The charge is punishable by up to 93 days behind bars.

The child's mother, Jacqueline King, filed a police report after her daughter, Mya, returned from her first day of kindergarten Sept. 3. Mya said the driver left her alone on the bus while the driver went into a fast-food restaurant at the end of the bus run.


Tri-cities realist

I wonder where this bus driver works now.


Sitting on a bar stool down at Sporty's, collecting unemployment, food stamps, and welfare, and generally not giving a damn. Oh, and probably babysitting for several trusting parents. The kids are either taking a nap at the trailer or out in the truck.
