ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A former bus driver who was charged with the statutory rape of a St. Louis Public Schools student has pleaded guilty.

The incident occurred in 2014, but the school district was never made aware of it until News 4 contacted them. SLPS was also unaware of which of the district's schools the victim attends.

Charles Laden Jr. is a 39-year-old man formerly employed as a bus driver by First Student Bus Company. Laden was 38-years-old when he had sex with the 15-year-old student at a University City home in April 2014.

A month after the alleged incident, Laden left his position on an unrelated matter.

Laden was sentenced to one year in prison.
