BARTOW, Fla. - A central Florida judge is sending a school bus driver to prison for driving 30 students to her house and letting two girls fight in the front yard.
Patrice Sanders accepted a plea deal Wednesday before Circuit Judge Roger Alcott sentenced her to 21 months in prison for the May 9 incident in Polk County.
The Ledger of Lakeland reports the Polk County Sheriff's Office investigated after the mother of a 13-year-old girl complained about the incident. Her daughter was involved in a fight with a 16-year-old girl.
According to the sheriff's office, 30-year-old Sanders drove to her house after the girls began fighting and ordered everyone off the bus. The girls finished their fight and Sanders completed her bus route.
