A former Lodi Unified School District bus driver will spend more than 20 years in prison for molesting an 8-year-old special-needs student.

Richard Dale Evans, 59, pleaded guilty in Stockton Superior Court on Wednesday to multiple charges of committing lewd acts on a minor by use of force or fear. He also plead guilty to one count of kidnapping a victim younger than 14, and to two special allegations of sex crimes.

    K LEE, the ironic thing is that as a bus driver he knew there was surveillance cameras recording his every move. This guy is not only a creepy sex offender, he isn't too bright either.

    Enrique Gianunzio: The truth is that the world has come to use technology to catch these creeps. Before the technology, and video surveillance on the buses, this guy would have indeed gotten off scott free. These horrible crimes have always been committed, but now we can catch the creeps!

    I cant believe what this world is coming to. I give credit to the school district for having video survelliance on the buses, without cameras this guy could have gotten off scott free. Props to the Stockton PD for catching this guy.

    This dude better better pray that inmates don't discover why he is incarcerated. Even evil, vile criminals can't stand a child molester and the fact that the child was a special needs girl makes it even worse. He will be in protective custody during his entire imprisonment. But even PC doesn't mean he is out of harms way,
