LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas bus driver is now the 13th school district employee this school year to face charges of sexual abuse involving a student.

Officials said Joiner was hired as a bus driver for the fifth-largest school system in the country in October 2015 but is now suspended without pay.

Police said they acted on a tip from a parent and that they discovered the relationship was fueled by electronic communications and social media.

Police said Joiner is not available for media interviews.
