ROCKLIN (CBS13) — Rocklin Unified School District officials chose not to tell parents when a school bus driver was arrested on suspicion of molesting a child.
Eric Deason, 50, was arrested earlier this month for allegedly violently sexually assaulting a young child, with charges of lewd acts with a child and sodomy pending.
But most parents didn’t have any idea that before he was placed behind bars, Deason drove children as a bus driver for the school district.
While Deason was fired when the district learned about his arrest, district officials declined to notify officials. This information only came to light because of a tip to CBS13 about his arrest.
“Every indication that we know right now is that the situation does not involve any Rocklin Unified School District students,” Assistant Superintendent Mike Garrison said.
And while deputies confirm they do not believe the alleged victim had any connection to Deason’s job chauffeuring children, parents are still wondering why they weren’t notified.
Garrison says Deason passed all the district’s background checks, but wouldn’t offer any more specifics, citing it as a personnel issue.
