Vinton School Bus Driver Arrested


VINTON, La. (AP) – Authorities say a 38-year-old Vinton school bus driver who admitted having sex with a teenage boy has been arrested.

Kim Myers, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, tells the American Press Jessica Hudson was booked Tuesday with 20 counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile.

In a separate case, the district attorney’s office say Hudson completed a pretrial diversion program in February to avoid a misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

Myers said deputies began investigating Tuesday after receiving an anonymous tip. She says Hudson knew the boy outside of a school setting.

Hudson is being held on $500,000 bond set.

It was unclear whether she has an attorney.
