Bryan Bus Driver Fined After Seeing Charges Reduced

Victoria Rummel, 49, of West Unity had originally been charged with endangering children in relation to the December, 2016 in which a child was left on her bus at the bus garage due to a failure to complete procedural checks at the conclusion of her route.

Rummel had originally pleaded not guilty to those charges on January 10 and saw those charges reduced on February 7, 2017 during a pre-trial conference. Rummel’s sentence for the reduced charge included a $250 fine, 50 hours of community service, and probation. A 30 day jail sentence was suspended pending compliance with probation and other aspects of the sentencing.

Rummel was released from her duties by the Bryan Board of Education in January. The administrative assistant and bus aide who worked with Rummel were not charged during the investigation. However, both were temporarily suspended by the school district.
