Harrison County BOE Addresses Future of Bus Driver Arrested on Sex Charges
By Lauren Talotta, General Assignment Reporter - email
Harrison County Superintendent Susan Collins plans to meet with school bus driver Stanley J. Coleman, 50, to discuss Coleman's arrest last week on sex charges, according to the Harrison County Board of Education.
Last Friday, Coleman was arrested after authorities said Coleman sent a 13-year-old female a photograph of obscene matter via text message and text messages that contained sexually explicit content.
Board President Mike Queen said July 16 the school board is taking the accusations very seriously, but Coleman is entitled to a state-mandated meeting with Collins to determine his fate with the district, since he has not been found guilty by state court.
Queen said the issue must be resolved by the beginning of the school year.
