PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Police say a local school bus driver showed lewd photographs to female students.
Several high school students say former Moon Area School District bus driver, 50-year-old Robert Lee Williams Jr. of Coraopolis, showed them photos of naked women and cursed.
Police were called to the high school and talked to several students.
“We have the cell phone; we have the nude photographs,” said Chief Leo McCarthy, of Moon Township Police.
Moon Township Police say the kids, ages 14 to 17, described the driver overhearing one boy’s comments about his girlfriend. Then, authorities say Williams took out his cell phone
“He showed the boys, the girls a nude photo of someone he had taken a photograph of, and said, ‘This is what I did last night,’” said Chief McCarthy.
According to investigators, Williams told police that the photo was snapped at the Villa, a nightclub on the South Side, where he works weekends.
“He admitted to this,” Chief McCarthy said.
But from his front door, Williams denied every accusation.
KDKA’s Mary Robb Jackson: “Did you show the kids pictures of naked women?”
Jackson: “You did not? They have your cell phone and it has pictures of naked women on it.”
Williams: “I didn’t show no kid no naked picture.”
The school district indicates that the parents of all students involved were contacted by administrators.
The superintendent immediately notified local police and the bus company requesting that the driver be suspended.
A bus company manager for Student Transportation of America told KDKA that Williams was immediately pulled off the run and after an investigation was terminated.
Williams is also accused of offering cigarettes to female students, as well as propositioning them.
He is charged on nine counts, including corruption of minors, unlawful contact with minors and dissemination to minors.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.
