WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A Winston-Salem school bus driver has been arrested and charged after a student said she was inappropriately touching him.

Aundra Lynn France, 50, a bus driver at R.J. Reynolds High School is charged with sexual battery and simple assault.

France was arrested after a 15-year-old male student at the school told officials he had been inappropriately touched by his bus driver.

France was placed in the Forsyth County Detention Center under a $1,000 secured bond. Her court date is set for June 25.

There were no other victims identified during the course of this investigation.

According to a release from Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, France has been suspended without pay since the district learned of the allegation.

France remains suspended without pay as Superintendent Beverly Emory considers the charges against her.

France began working for WS/FCS as a substitute bus driver in April 2011. She has been a part-time driver for the district since October 2011.

“All of our employees are expected to act professionally and ethically in every situation,” Emory said. “I’m deeply disappointed when we do not meet that standard.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Winston-Salem Police Department at 336-773-7700 or Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.

    Sorry, but I don’t believe it. Probably some kid got made at her cause she told him to do something. I was a driver for 30 years and I know how they can be.

      That was my reaction too. I don’t buy it either. I wonder if there were any witnesses to this. Normally when a bond is set so low for something like that, there are questions about the story. It sounds like the school system is ready to sail her down the river without a paddle.

    she looks like a sad clown. if that would have been a man the bond would have been 100,000 dollars. when a man is arrested for something of this nature, replies are always negative. liars are born everyday. mothers also coach theire daughter to lie.

      What about the Carver teacher (MALE) who was suspended (WITH PAY) for supposedly touching two MALE students? He didn’t have a $100,000 bond. All kids in these stories are boys, did their mommies coach them to lie, too? Just saying, don’t be bias when deciding guilt or innocence. This is the 21st century.

      or maybe someone who just spent hours on a bus with 60+ arrogant disrespecting teenagers who remind the peon drivers that their parents pay their salaries…. You couldn’t pay me enough to have this job!
