Louisiana school bus driver arrested for child porn



A Louisiana high school bus driver has been arrested for child pornography.


Rufus Addison, 62, of Loranger, was arrested and booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on Tuesday, November 15.


Addison was accused of being “inappropriately involved with a high school student,” according to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office. “They discovered Addison had been communicating inappropriately with a female student."


Addison was a bus driver for St. Thomas Aquinas High School. The high school sent this message to parents of students before Addison was arrested:

"Dear Parents, This email is to inform you that yesterday we were made aware of a potential violation of the Code of Ethics by a contract employee. Please know this matter was referred to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office and is being handled in accordance with local and state laws. The individual in question is no longer affiliated with St. Thomas Aquinas and any information regarding this matter will be issued by a TPSO representative."

The investigation began after the Principal of St. Thomas Aquinas High School alerted the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office Juvenile Division about a recent discovery.
