Pearland school bus driver charged for alleged inappropriate contact with student

PEARLAND, TX

Diana Almanza is charged with Sexual Assault of a Child. Police say they were alerted by the district back on November 29 about possible inappropriate contact between Almanza and the student. Investigators say Almanza was picking up her bus and starting her route unusually early and that there was a student with her.

Police interviewed the student, whose family was living with Almanza. They say during that interview, they learned about the alleged inappropriate interaction.

Almanza was arrested yesterday. She's currently in the Pearland City Jail on a $60,000 bond.
