DEER ISLE, Maine (AP) - A school bus driver from Deer Isle has been charged with sexually assaulting a girl over a four-year period.
Larry Bunt was arrested Dec. 5 on two charges of gross sexual assault. The 52-year-old Bunt was held on $25,000 cash bail.
Authorities say Bunt did not meet the alleged victim through his job as a school bus driver.
Maine State Police said in court documents that the girl, now a teenager, said Bunt had sexually assaulted her "about every other week" while she was between 4 and 8 years old.
The Bangor Daily News reports that the alleged assaults took place between 2000 and 2004. The girl told police Bunt touched her genitals and made her touch his genitals.
