Looking at all the hazing assaults that have occurred on school buses made me do a little research into whether or not bus drivers have a duty to step in should their “routine” mirror inspections uncover an attack. This article makes me think a driver could face charges one day in a hazing assault.
VALPARAISO â€” The driver of a Portage High School bus where three juveniles allegedly terrorized and sexually assaulted other students has been charged in the incident.
Terry Burch, 68, of Portage faces felony charges of neglect of dependent, and could serve up to three years in prison if convicted.
According to court records, the parents of one of the girls, who had her head forced to one boyâ€™s exposed genitals, confronted the bus driver at the bus stop.
Burch allegedly said he allowed such behavior because it was taking place after school and he had no authority
