Sanford, FL (AP) - A Florida father who stormed onto a school
bus and threatened children because his 13-year-old disabled
daughter had been bullied is planning to speak at a national school
The National Association for Pupil Transportation announced
Thursday that James Willie Jones will participate in a panel
discussion of the school bus industry at its annual conference in
Portland, Oregon. The conference begins October 30th.
Jones was charged last week with disorderly conduct and
disturbing a school function for the September 3rd incident in
Sanford, just north of Orlando. He later posted $2,000 bail and was
ordered to stay away from the driver and county school buses.
Jones has apologized for his actions and says he will work to
advocate against bullying.
