B-W Bus Driver Accused of Sex with Boy

The 73-year-old is a Brentwood Borough resident.

William Scherz, a Baldwin-Whitehall School District bus driver, is accused of driving to Elizabeth Township to have sex with a 15-year-old boy, according to a WPXI report.

Scherz, 73, of Brentwood Borough, was taken to the Allegheny County Jail on charges of corruption of minors, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and statutory sexual assault, among others. He eventually made bail, was released and is scheduled to appear at District Magistrate Beth Scagline Mills' Route 51 office on Jan. 28 (UPDATE: continued to Feb. 25 and then to March 18).

WPXI's report states, "According to police, Scherz was off duty on Jan. 22 when he drove to Elizabeth Township and had sex with the 10th-grade boy."

Police found Scherz's false teeth on the boy's couch. Scherz has maintained that the relationship was consensual and that he did not know that the boy was a minor.

The article says the driver was terminated by the disctrict. The news also reported that the dirver was suspended the day the allegations were made.
