A school bus driver is charged with statutory rape after allegedly having sex with one of the students he drove to school.
Brandon Baker was a bus driver for the Houston School District when he met the girl, which court documents detail is less than 14-years-old.
Court records show Baker, who was born in 1988, started talking with the girl on the phone and eventually went to her house and visiting.
They said Baker took her to an abandoned trailer on his grandfather's land in Texas County and had sexual intercourse with her.
Court documents indicate to keep their relationship a secret from the girl's dad, Baker bought her a cell phone.
While her dad didn't know about the relationship, Baker would visit the girl with her mom's consent.
If convicted Baker could be sentenced ten-years to a life term in prison.
