Some Cedar Rapids parents are upset their school district kept a convicted sex offender on the job as a school bus driver. In 1992, Jerry Neef pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of indecent contact with a ten-year-old girl. Administrators claim Neef is -no- risk to children but parent Deb Lewis disagrees. She says administrators should put themselves in the position of parents. Lewis says anyone covicted of such a crime should not have any involvement with the district’s children.Superintendent Lew Finch says he’s looked at the evidence in the case which he says shows the incident may never have happened. He says that’s the unfortunate part of the whole story. Finch says Neef was hired before the district began doing background checks. Neef resigned from his bus driving job on Tuesday.
