A New York bus driver is facing serious charges after a grand jury indicted them for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a female student passenger.

Giovanny Campos, also known as Giovanny Guzman, is accused of subjecting a student from Valley Stream to repeated sexual assaults between January and July. 

Prosecutors in New York assert that these attacks took place at Campos’s Queens home as well as on his bus, painting a graphic picture of the abuse.

The grand jury’s indictment outlines charges including second-degree kidnapping, third-degree rape, two counts of a third-degree criminal sex act, and reckless endangerment, highlighting the gravity of the alleged offenses.

Upon his plea of not guilty, Campos was remanded with bail set at $150,000 cash, $300,000 bond, and a $1.25 million partially secured bond as prosecutors aim for a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison if he is convicted.

District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly expressed deep concern, stating, “School bus drivers are trusted to transport and protect our children, but this defendant allegedly preyed on a teenage student and sexually abused her both on his bus and at his apartment in Queens.”

Representatives from the Legal Aid Society of Nassau County, Campos’s legal representatives according to court documents, were unavailable for comment on this distressing case.

A New York bus driver is facing serious charges after a grand jury indicted them for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a female student passenger.

The arrest of Campos by Nassau County police’s Special Victims Squad on September 28 uncovered horrifying details of repeated abuse inflicted upon the victim, who was a student traveling between Central High School and North High School in Valley Stream, a mere 3-mile distance.

The disturbing details were revealed by New York Prosecutors, who said that the adolescent was taken by Campos to his home in Jamaica, Queens, for additional sex acts, and that the attacks took place inside the bus, even in parking lots.

The Cheese Bus company, Campos’s employer, promptly terminated his employment upon learning of the allegations. 

In a statement, Cheese Bus, Inc. reiterated its commitment to community safety, affirming swift action to ensure the individual in question was removed from all routes and barred from any contact with passengers.

The business emphasized that it is fully cooperating with New York law enforcement and prepared to offer additional support as needed in this upsetting and extremely worrying circumstance.
