FAYETTEVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - A former Fayette County school bus driver has been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison for having sex with a 14-year-old student who rode on his bus.

Media outlets report Steven “Rick” Malay was sentenced Thursday in Fayette County Circuit Court. Malay was convicted of sexual abuse by a person of trust.

According to court filings, the encounters occurred at the girl’s home while her parents were sleeping.

A judge last year dismissed six of the eight counts against Malay, ruling the juvenile wasn’t under Malay’s care when the encounters happened. The Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that decision should be left to a jury.
