The New Jersey State Police have arrested Franck Lafortune, 64, of Burlington Township, for allegedly watching explicit images in front of elementary age students on a school bus.
According to authorities, Monday staff members from the Indian Mills Elementary School were notified that two minors informed their parents that they saw their school bus driver, Franck Lafortune, watching explicit images on his cell phone prior to exiting the bus at 8:30 a.m.
The bus was reportedly parked at the time.
Officials say the parents of the minors later notified troopers after they learned of the incident. As a result of the investigation by troopers from the New Jersey State Police Red Lion Station and detectives from the Troop “C” Criminal Investigation Office, Franck Lafortune was charged with obscenity to minors under the age of 18 and released pending a court appearance.
Charges are mere accusations, and the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty.
