Chesterfield school bus driver charged with child sex crime

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -  A Chesterfield County school bus driver is accused of a having a sexual relationship with a student, that went on for years.

44 year old Tracy Allanson is in jail tonight charged with taking indecent liberties with a minor while in a custodial role.

The boy's parents want to remain anonymous to protect their son's identity.

 They said the relationship between Allanson and their son started in May 2009 when he was just 14.

They said they confronted him last night when his step-father uncovered pictures of Allanson at their home.

The teen's step-father said he's never met Allanson. 

But the boy's mom said she was his school bus driver for two years.

The boy's parents became suspicious when they say they found pictures of Allanson on a flash drive and later checked their son's computer where they uncovered emails between the two.

"He just basically told us they text back and forth they were friends and my wife got suspicious about it," said the teen's stepfather.

But police said Allanson had been having a sexual relationship with the Chesterfield student.

 "That is kind of upsetting it's sick," said the teen's stepfather.

The teen's mom said the relationship started on the school bus that the two would exchange notes and she would bring him homemade treats but it didn't stop there.  The mom said Allanson would take her son into the woods with a beach towel and at least on one occasion had oral sex.

No one answered the Allanson home on Laurel Oak Road.

Allanson was arrested Friday morning.

Police said she acknowledged the relationship to investigators.

The boy's computer is now in evidence.

"There was some evidence of internet activity and computer activity that occurred," said Chesterfield Police Captain Dave Pritchard.

Allanson has been a bus driver for Chesterfield Schools since March 2007. 

Chesterfield Schools spokesman, Shawn Smith, released this statement about the sex crime case: "These are very serious charges and the employee will not be working for the school division pending the disposition of the charges and the administrative process."

"Of course we're going to have to engage in some type of counseling to make him realize that what happened was nothing he did wrong but he was basically preyed upon," said the teen's stepfather.

The teen's parents tell me the two had planned to run away together when he turned 18.

His birthday is in two weeks.

Allanson remains in jail on a $25,000 bond.  She could face a judge next Tuesday.
