Chesterfield school bus driver convicted in sex crime case

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield school bus driver pled guilty today to having a sexual relationship with a boy who was 15 at the time.

44-year-old Tracy Allanson was convicted of taking indecent liberties with a child in a custodial role. Allanson could be back home as early as tonight to wait out her fate.

The prosecutor told the judge she had a sexual relationship with a boy she met when he was in middle school and contacted him even after she was told not to.

Allanson's husband and parents left court without a word.

Allanson could get up to five years for having sex with a boy who she claimed wanted to know what sex felt like after hearing about it in school. The two met when she was his school bus driver.

On May 6th, 2009, the prosecutor said Allanson brought the boy to a wooded area where she performed oral sex on him and she allowed him to perform a sex act on her.

Allanson had been a free woman while awaiting trial. But during that time, the prosecutor said she reached out to the young man on Facebook

Her defense attorney said her client acknowledged she was "stupid".

Tara Morgan: "Did you know it continued even after she was arrested, she spoke to him on Facebook, you don't want to say anything on her behalf?" However her husband had nothing to say.

The prosecutor said his parents found out about Allanson's relationship with their son after coming across pictures of Allanson on a thumb drive file titled "The love of my life."

They later discovered text messages and emails between the two. His parents also found three pairs of women's underwear their son dumped in the trash.

The prosecutor said Allanson claimed the boy was infatuated with her and wanted her to leave her husband. She claimed she was not in love with him.

Allanson, who is receiving counseling according to her attorney, was ordered to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation.

Allanson's $25,000 bond was reinstated today on the condition she has no more contact with the young man. Her sentencing is scheduled for June.

A Chesterfield schools spokesman said Allanson had been suspended without pay that the district does not employ convicted felons so it will now proceed with appropriate personnel action.
