A Palm Beach County, Florida school bus driver was quite insistent that lying kids can’t be trusted when they accused him of making crude sexual remarks, but his argument was unable to stand up to the overwhelming evidence against him.
When Oral Pryce told a 15-year-old student that he wanted to drive off with her and rape her, the girl recorded his remarks. Pryce had spent some time attempting to groom the girl, sharing his McDonald’s breakfast, texting her, and even altering his route so he could pick her up in front of her home.
On Monday, however, things went from creepy to WHAT THE [email protected]#$! The girl says she was sitting in a seat near Pryce while the two were alone. In fact, to ensure they were alone, Pryce bypassed a student waiting for the bus. He then turned off the engine and began telling the child that he wanted her instead of his wife.
“I like you because you’re secretive. I’ll give you my bank card. Remember, you’re the last person that rides my bus. I’ll drive away with you and rape you,” the bus driver told the girl, according to a school district police arrest report.
The girl says Pryce told her he would kill her if she ever told anyone. In a panic, she began texting a friend and her stepfather to keep them apprised of the situation. Finally, when the girl told the driver she was going to be late for school, he turned on the engine and resumed his route.
As soon as she was dropped off at school, she informed the staff of what had happened and arranged for her mother to pick her up immediately.
At about 5 p.m. on Monday, Pryce called and texted the girl, asking why she had not taken the bus home after school — and she recorded the conversation.
She told Pryce she was sick, and the school bus driver began making lewd remarks and asking for nude photographs.
When confronted, Pryce denied making any sexual remarks. “Pryce explained that all the time in the past children would make accusations, but there was never any proof,” a detective wrote in the report. “He went on to state that you cannot trust anyone.”
The driver was removed from any contact with children as soon as the school was notified and, after a swift investigation, was arrested on Thursday.
