Fairfax school bus driver and aide accused of assaulting autistic 11-year-old

Added on 25 November 2017 - 22:23 'Viewed 28 views times.

A school bus driver and aide in Fairfax County are accused of assaulting an 11-year-old boy with autism twice in one week. The incidents are alleged to have happened on a bus.

The aide, Edmund Bailey, 35, and the driver, James Duffy III, 62, both of Lorton, were charged with one count each of assault and battery, according to a news release from the Fairfax County Police Department.

The first incident allegedly happened Oct. 11 and the second allegedly occurred two days later, the release stated. A school district employee reported the second alleged incident after witnessing it, prompting a review of surveillance footage from the bus and resulting in a police investigation.

Warrants were issued Friday, and Bailey and Duffy have turned themselves in, according to police. Bailey resigned as an aide, and Duffy was placed on administrative leave, the release stated.

Attorneys for the driver and aide could not be immediately located.

John Torre, a Fairfax school district spokesman, declined to identify the school where Bailey and Duffy worked, citing student privacy. Torre also didn ’t respond to questions asking for a description of the incident.

“Student safety is our number one priority and we commend the FCPS employee who intervened on behalf of the student that prompted the investigation and subsequent arrests,” Torre said in an emailed statement. “The actions of those charged do not reflect the expectations of FCPS, nor do they represent the dedication of FCPS employees who care deeply about the well-being of all students, especially those who are most vulnerable.”
