St. Martin bus driver facing assault charges
A former bus driver in St. Martin is facing a year-and-a-half behind bars after being found guilty of child abuse and assault.
After two days of trial and only 30 minutes of deliberation, a Jackson County jury found 58-year-old Antoinette Raymond guilty for contributing to neglect, delinquency, or abuse of a child, and simple assault.
A former St. Martin bus driver claimed she was not in the right ‘frame of mind’ at the time of the crime.
Following that testimony, sentencing was delayed until a report can be done on Raymond’s background and medical condition.
Raymond faces a total sentence of 18 months on the misdemeanor charges.
