A school bus monitor, who admitted to sexually abusing a student on his bus, learned his sentence Tuesday.
Robert Hoff will spend six months in jail after pleading guilty to a charge of first-degree sex abuse.
Officials say the victim is a nine-year-old girl who is severely autistic and unable ti speak. Investigators say the bus driver saw Hoff grope the child while he was sitting next to her on the bus.
Hoff's attorney had requested a lower sex offender registry level, but a judge denied that request, registering Hoff as a level two offender.
