STOCKTON (AP) ― A former Lodi school bus driver is accused of molesting an 8-year-old special-needs girl, and authorities are trying to determine if there were more victims.
Richard Evans initially was charged for one alleged incident on Nov. 3, but prosecutors added more charges Monday after learning about a second. He now faces six felony counts, including sex on a child 10 or younger and kidnapping.
The 59-year-old is a former full-time driver for Lodi Unified School District who returned as a substitute driver in 2008.
Prosecutors say Evans picked up the girl from home and molested her before picking up other students. She later told her parents.
Evans has not yet entered a plea, and his attorney has requested a gag order in the case.
He’s being held on $2.4 million bail.
