LAS VEGAS, NV – A judge has sentenced a former school bus driver to life behind bars after he was convicted of molesting special needs children on his school bus.

Michael Banco, 58, was a Clark County School District special education bus driver who was responsible for 20 students on his route throughout the Las Vegas Valley.

In 2015 he was arrested after a 3-year-old girl told her family that Banco had been sexually molesting her on the bus.

Surveillance footage from inside the bus was reviewed and revealed Banco molesting and assaulting children in the back of a bus before dropping them off at school. The victims were only 3- and 4-years-old.

Prosecutors called it the most horrific case they’ve ever seen. And they work in Vegas, so you know it must have been bad.

Initially facing 41 counts, Banco pleaded guilty last month to one count each of sexual assault with a minor under 16 and lewdness with a child under 14.

On Wednesday, Judge Elisa Cadish called Banco’s crimes “incomprehensible” while sentencing him to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 35 years.

According to the grandmother of one of the victims, Banco isn’t the only one punished for life.

“This man has destroyed my granddaughter,” she said. “How do we get past that? I don’t know what else to do but hug her. That’s all I have.”
