Former school bus driver seeks diversion

Posted:

JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (AP) - A former school bus driver charged after crashing with students aboard last fall will seek judicial diversion in the case.

The Johnson City Press (http://bit.ly/ZO6uAC) reports the attorney for 54-year-old Brenda Gray said on Friday that he plans to file a request with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for an in-depth background search in order to get a diversion certificate.

Gray is charged with 39 counts of reckless aggravated assault after crashing the bus full of high school students in Washington County last September. Tennessee Highway Patrol investigators determined Gray was speeding when the crash occurred.

She entered a not guilty plea to the charges on Friday during her arraignment.

If she is granted diversion, her record would be wiped clean after a period of time on probation.
