OMAHA, Nebraska — A former driver has been fined $250 for leaving a 5-year-old on a bus in the Omaha school district bus barn.
Omaha television station KETV (http://bit.ly/1Sfcb5d ) reports that 68-year-old Thomas Naimie was convicted on Monday. Online court records say Naimie had changed his plea to guilty on a misdemeanor count of negligent care of a minor. Naimie told the judge that he'd had a "senior moment" on Aug. 31, the day the girl was found on the bus after her father called police and the district transportation department when she didn't return home.
Puol Nuor says his daughter has cerebral palsy and a feeding tube. Nuor says she also has selective mutism, so she speaks only when she's comfortable.
The district says Naimie left its employ on Sept. 1.
