The abuse reportedly occurred both on the bus and at the defendant’s apartment in Queens. School bus drivers are entrusted with the responsibility of transporting and safeguarding our children, making these allegations particularly disturbing.

The suspect was responsible for transporting the victim from January to July.
Campos, according to the police, was arrested in September. If found guilty, he could be sentenced to a maximum of 25 years in prison.
