Man Gets State Prison For Assaulting Bus Driver
A man has been given jail time for putting a bag over a tour bus driver’s head, groping her and exposing himself while the bus was going 55 miles per hour.
37-year-old Carlos Rodriguez of Reading pleaded guilty to risking a catastrophe, recklessly endangering other persons and indecent assault in the incident, which happened in March of 2011 on Route 422 in Upper Providence Township.
In sentencing him to four to twelve years in state prison, Montgomery County President Judge William Furber called him a very dangerous person. He said people could have been killed by the defendant’s reckless actions.
The victim gave the judge a statement saying she has lost income because she can no longer drive on Route 422, and she is fearful of people who board the bus on her new route.
