A former Albert Gallatin Senior High School bus driver accused of engaging in sexual acts with a 15-year-old girl has entered into a plea bargain that calls for him to be imprisoned for one to two years, District Attorney Jack Heneks said.

Michael William Edgar, 52, of Fairchance is charged by state police at Uniontown with statutory sexual assault and corruption of minors.

The girl told police the incidents occurred in October and November, police said.

Video surveillance taken from the school showed that on the morning of Nov. 1, the sexual contact happened after other students exited the bus in the main driveway area, according to police.

Edgar had worked as a bus driver for 25 years with the district, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The girl told police she had “a crush” on her bus driver and she approached him several times on the bus and left him letters describing the sex acts, police said.

Heneks said Edgar entered into the plea bargain on Tuesday. A sentencing date has not been set.
