A Gaston County bus driver was placed in jail Tuesday for inappropriately touching a young girl, police said.
A Cherryville Police statement said Cherryville resident Laurence Oscar Lee Huss, 50, was driving the childâ€™s school bus at the time.
After the girlâ€™s parent notified the principal at W.B. Beam Intermediate School, which she attends, school officials contacted police on Dec.Â 16.
Huss was arrested following a police investigation and talks with the countyâ€™s District Attorneyâ€™s Office.
He faces three counts each of indecent liberties and child and sexual battery and is currently being held in the Gaston County jail under a $100,000 secured bond.
Huss is expected to make his first court appearance on Thursday.
