LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Clark County School District is being sued by the parents of a child sexually assaulted by a school bus driver in 2015.

New court documents say on three different occasions Michael Blanco, a bus driver for the district, assaulted a girl on his bus.

The lawsuit says surveillance video from the bus Blanco drove resulted in sexual assault charges against him.

In 2018, Blanco pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison.

The suit says district employees failed to notice the abuse or take action.
