Bus driver, monitor charged after boy left in wrong spot


The child’s mother said it’s not the incident, but the response of the driver and monitor and transportation director, that led to her complaints to police.

She no longer allows her son to ride the school bus, she said.

Cloyd’s attorney said yesterday that his client was forced to resign as a result of the incident.

“At worst, it’s a mistake,” said Pregent, who believes the loss of Cloyd’s job ought to be punishment enough. “For her to be charged, it’s outrageous.”

Pregent said Cloyd has cried over what happened. “She feels awful,” he said.

Judge Robert Brennan decided to delay the arraignment because Cloyd was never sent a notice of her right to a clerk magistrate’s hearing. The case was postponed until March 6.
