ORANGEBURG, South Carolina — A former special education bus monitor is free on bond after being charged with assaulting a 6-year-old student in Orangeburg County.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell tells The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg (http://bit.ly/1LIMBUA) that 54-year-old Samuel Green of Rowesville was charged Friday with second-degree assault and battery. The charge carries a sentence of up to three years.

Ravenell says a camera on a Consolidated District 4 school bus recorded the assault.

School district officials contacted the sheriff's office Oct. 22 after a student reported seeing a special education student assaulted.

Superintendent Dr. Tim Newman says Green has been fired.

A report on the assault describes the child as a "low-level special needs student" who has had no discipline problems this year.

It wasn't clear Saturday if Green has an attorney.
