Ex-Ga. bus driver sentenced on child porn charges

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) U.S. Attorney's officials say a metro Atlanta school bus driver has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on child pornography charges.

Authorities said Monday that 57-year-old Stanley Keith Johnson of Mableton ordered about 180 DVDs from a foreign company between November 2010 and April 2011 featuring nude boys between 8 and 14 years old.

Investigators say a forensic examination of Johnson's computer revealed the former Cobb County school bus driver and supervisor produced child pornography since at least 2004. Officials say Johnson also used a work computer to check the delivery status of the DVD orders.

Prosecutors say the pornography Johnson produced featured an 8-year-old boy he befriended at church.

Authorities say Johnson volunteered with the church's youth group and took interest in boys who didn't have father figures.
