Sex Wedgie School Bus Aide Gets 3 Years
Darnell Washington, a school bus aide formerly serving P.S. 183 in Rockaway for Philippe and Elmer Transportation, has received a three year-sentence for molesting students. His M.O. was to give young boys "wedgies," then proceed to feel around. He also showed one of his victims a picture of a suspiciously young nude girl on his cell phone, which led investigators to discover Washington's cache of child porn. Washington tried to buy the children's silence with money and lollipops, but two came forward, prompting the investigation.
