TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say a former northern Michigan school bus driver has been charged with inappropriately touching a student on his bus.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports 66-year-old Larry Beutler of Buckley was arraigned Wednesday by video on three counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct. He told the court that he understood the charges against him and is jailed on $200,000 bond.

Court records didn’t list a lawyer for Beutler.

Beutler worked for Dean Transportation, which provides bus services for Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District, until he was accused in the case. Investigators say he inappropriately touched a 14-year-old girl while the school bus was parked.

The transportation company’s CEO Kellie Dean says it could soon add more security cameras and randomly monitor them to ensure proper conduct from bus drivers.
