NC: Teen charged with committing sex offenses on bus with girl, 7

NOTE: Our office was previously notified that there was a single bus in this District that would pick up muli-aged children with a variety of disabilities and drop the children off at their respective schools. It was also reported that some of these children were on this bus for close to two hours one way, to and from school, every day. We do not know if this is the same bus that was reported to us, but are trying to confirm. Regardless, our hearts go out to the little girl and her family, to the 18 year old boy and his family, and to all the families with children who were transported on this bus...
