WASHINGTON (AP) - A school bus aide has been charged with child cruelty after she allegedly left a 3-year-old autistic boy on a bus.
Media reports that 35-year-old Quiana Greene was arrested this week in connection with the Nov. 27 incident. Greene entered a plea of not guilty Saturday in court.
In November, the 3-year-old boy was picked up and strapped into his seat at 7:30 a.m. for a trip to Walker Jones Elementary School in Washington. But authorities say the child was left on the bus when it arrived at the school, and he was left on the bus when it was parked at a bus yard.
According to court documents, the boy was not discovered until 2 p.m. He was still strapped into his car seat.
