A former school bus driver who was behind the wheel during a 2016 wreck that killed six children in Tennessee was indicted Monday on multiple charges of statutory rape. Johnthony Walker, 26, was indicted by a Davidson County grand jury on eight counts of aggravated statutory rape and one count of exploitation of a minor, according to WSMV-TV. Walker admitted having sex with the teen, WSMV-TV reported, citing both an affidavit and a Nashville police sergeant's testimony. The sergeant reportedly testified that Walker had concerns over the girl’s age and that he found it “repulsive” that it happened. In March 2018, Walker was found guilty after the bus he was driving on Nov. 21, 2016, carrying 37 kids from Woodmore Elementary School, crashed on a winding road.
