A former janitor and bus driver for the Greene County Technical Education Center now must register as a sex offender after an incident involving a student.
David Snow, 56, of Stanardsville, pleaded guilty this morning in Greene Circuit Court to taking indecent liberties with a minor by a person in a custodial relationship over the child. As part of a plea agreement, Judge Daniel R. Bouton sentenced Snow to an entirely suspended three-year prison sentence, 10 years of good behavior and a year of supervised probation.
Ron Morris, commonwealth’s attorney, said in court that Snow drove a then-16-year-old student to his home on Nov. 10 so the boy could try on a shirt that he would need for a club meeting. The prosecutor said in court that Snow obtained the teen’s parent’s permission before taking the boy to his home.
On the way back, Morris said in court, Snow stopped his truck to urinate on the side of the road. After returning from the side of the road, the prosecutor said in court, Snow returned to the truck and put his hand on the boy’s clothed crotch. Morris said in court that Snow said he thought that is what the boy wanted, but the boy pulled away and said no.
Snow apologized to the victim after the incident, the prosecutor said in court, and he drove the boy home afterwards. The incident came to light after the victim told his friend’s parent about what happened.
