Florida bus driver turns himself in and admits to having relations with student
WINTER GARDEN, Fla. -- In Winter Garden, a 35 year old Florida bus driver has turned himself in and admitted to having relations with student.
Javier Mendez turned himself last week and told authorities that he wanted to register as a sex offender.
Authorities say the relationship began in November starting with text messages and leading to the sharing of explicit photos through Facebook.
The two eventually met in person at a church parking lot.
He has since been charged with both lewd and lascivious molestation.
Mendez was also previously investigated by authorities when he fell asleep at the wheel and crashed on Interstate 4 with 13 children on board.
