A 24-year-old Pinellas County school bus driver was arrested after deputies said he had sexual relations with a 16-year-old girl he met while driving a school bus, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Dondre M. Davis, of St. Petersburg, faces a charge of unlawful sexual activity with certain minors. The 16-year-old victim was not identified by deputies because of her age and the nature of the allegations. Deputies did not say what high school the student attended or where the allegations took place.
Davis was a relief bus driver, according to the Sheriff's Office, when he made contact with the 16-year-old last week. He gave her his Facebook chat ID, deputies said, they started communicating and Davis "flirted" with the teen. Then on Thursday morning, deputies said Davis drove the victim in a Pinellas County School District bus to an undisclosed location where they engaged in sexual relations.
A Lealman Intermediate School first reported the allegations to school staff. The 16-year-old also told sheriff's detectives about the incident. Davis was arrested and the Sheriff's Office said he admitted to the allegations when detectives spoke to him at the Pinellas County jail on Friday.
Davis was being held Saturday in jail in lieu of $10,000 bail. Records show he is also awaiting trial on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery.
