School bus driver faces sex charges

File Photo

A Chautauqua County man has been arrested, facing charges in the sexual abuse of a minor. Sixty-six year old John Hitchcock, a bus driver for the Randolph Central School District, is believed to have had a series of sexual encounters with a 13-year-old boy in the fall of 2012. Allegations against Hitchcock were only recently reported. He is facing seven counts of first-degree sexual abuse and a single count of endangering the welfare of a child.

An arraignment in the case is scheduled for Monday morning.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
