TORRINGTON, Conn. (AP) - A Torrington school bus driver has been charged with felony sexual assault for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy.
Thirty-9-year-old Tina Scapin of Torrington was arraigned Monday in Bantam Superior Court. She posted $10,000 bail after her arrest earlier this month.
Police say no incidents involving Scapin and the teen occurred on a school bus or when she was on the job for Torrington's school bus contractor, All Star Transportation. Officials say she is no longer driving school buses for the company.
The bus company declined to comment, and police released few details because the criminal case has been sealed from public view.
Scapin declined to comment Monday.
She's charged with second-degree sexual assault and is due back in court on March 26.

The cleanup has begun in some parts of Long Island while others continue to deal with flooding from heavy rain fall that began late Tuesday and intensified on Wednesday. Cars remain stranded after rain pounded the area. More than 13 inches of rain fell in Islip. The National Weather Service said the rain was the largest event on record for New York State in a 24-hour period.
