A former carl junction school bus driver is arrested for sex crimes against a student

I'm jordan aubey.

A former carl junction school bus driver is arrested for sex crimes against a student.

67-year-old dennis frakes is charged with one count of sodomy and one count of sexual contact with a former female student.

Police say she was assaulted over a number of years, beginning in her early teens.

Koam's kate kelley tells us the arrest comes as a shock to the community.

"i mean i couldn't believe it whenever i heard about it and i was like, 'oh my god, that's carl junction.'

It was shocking as a parent to find out."

Words from a mother of two, still trying to process the thought of a former c-j bus driver sexually assaulting a former student.

"it is scary.

It's scary to think that something like that could happen."

According to court records, dennis frakes was a school bus driver for the c-j school district at the time of the abuse.

He was hired for the district in 20-12.

"he came in, was an okay employee, and did his job and i think was a friendly person to everyone, got along."

On october 25-th, though, the school received a report from a former female student, now an adult, speaking out about her experience with frakes.

"we brought him in to inform him of that, gave him due process.

During that process, we heard enough that his employment was terminated at that time.

We called law enforcement and it was hotlined to the missouri children's division, and at that point they've handled it."

"the school district did their job.

The subject passed a background check, had worked for several years, preyed upon a child victim and the only person at fault in this is him."

Carl junction schools sent a message to parents regarding the arrest---a comfort to glenda starkey.

"as soon as they found out something at all, we got emails and phone calls and it was on facebook so i don't feel less safe with my kids because i know that they're doing such a good job to keep them safe."

In carl junction, kate kelley, koam news.

Jordan: dennis frakes is still in jail.

His bond is set at 50-thousand dollars.

Authorities are now asking any other possible victims to come forward.
