Mother gets year of probation in attack on school bus driver

MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A mother accused of pushing and yelling at a 73-year-old Mandan school bus driver after her son assaulted him has been sentenced to a year of probation.

Thirty-six-year-old Megan Hernandez, of Bismarck, recently pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of harassment and disorderly conduct, and prosecutors dropped a criminal trespass count. Her record will be cleared if she successfully completes probation.

The boy was charged in juvenile court with simple assault and other counts after the incident last October. The driver was not seriously injured.
