Bus driver gets jail time for molesting passenger

BOWLING GREEN A former TARTA bus driver was sentenced yesterday to 15 days jail and five years community control for molesting a developmentally disabled passenger on a bus last year in Perrysburg.

Deon Davis, 30, of 1469 Fernwood Ave., also was ordered by Wood County Common Pleas Court Judge Reeve Kelsey to have a mental health assessment and complete any recommended treatment.

Judge Kelsey also said he could not ride TARTA buses during his probation.

Mr. Davis pleaded no contest and was found guilty last month on a sexual imposition charge.

He also was found to be a sexually oriented offender, meaning he will have to register with the sheriff in the county where he lives for the next 10 years.
