Update: Oklahoma school bus driver arrested for lewd acts involving a child, police say
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma County Sheriff’s deputies arrested an Edmond school bus driver on multiple charges, including lewd acts with a child under 16.
Police say an 8-year-old boy says Scott Keith Jepson, 32, touched him inappropriately 2 different times on the same day.
Police say it happened in Luther, Okla. at the victim’s home in the summer of 2013.
Deputies say when they searched Jepson’s Logan County home, they found pornographic pictures of children on his cell phone and email account.
Jepson was arrested on 8 counts involving lewd acts with a child, possessing child pornography and distributing child pornography.
The suspect was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
Jepson has been employed as a bus driver with Edmond Public Schools since 2006.
Edmond Public Schools administrators say for all but the first year of his employment, Jepson drove Bus #82 and transported students to and from these Edmond schools:
- North High School
- Cheyenne Middle School
- Summit Middle School
- Sunset Elementary School
- Ida Freeman Elementary School
- John Ross Elementary School
The Edmond School District says there have been no complaints about Jepson’s behavior in the past.
School administrators say the allegations are disturbing.
However, Jepson is still employed with the school district.
