MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — A former southern New Jersey school bus driver who sexually assaulted a young student last year has been sentenced to 10 years in state prison.
Hugo Sandoval of Hammonton must serve 8½ years of the term imposed Friday before becoming eligible for parole.
The 59-year-old Sandoval had pleaded guilty last December to sexually assaulting the then 8-year-old girl in April 2012. Atlantic County prosecutors say the girl and her 5-year-old brother were the only students remaining on the bus when Sandoval stopped the vehicle and told the boy to go to the back of the bus.
