BLUE EARTH, Minn. (KNSI) A former Minnesota school bus driver accused of slapping a 6-year-old passenger has agreed to a deal with the prosecutor.
Under the agreement, the prosecutor will dismiss the complaint against 72-year-old Jane Brooks if Brooks has no assault or disorderly conduction violations for a year. If Brooks fails, the prosecutor could reinstate criminal proceedings.
Prosecutor Troy Timmerman says Brooks does not have to enter a plea or admit to any wrongdoing.
Brooks was charged with fifth-degree assault after she allegedly slapped a boy across the face after he hit and spit at other children in September.
Brooks resigned as a Blue Earth Area Schools bus driver in October.
