Dodge Bus Driver Charged With Molestation
Crime, Schools

A Dodge County school bus driver, who is also a former teacher and coach, is in jail charged with child molestation.

54-year-old Jimmy Frost of Eastman was arrested Monday and faces a single count of aggravated child molestation. That's according to Todd Lowery, special-agent in charge of the GBI's Eastman office.

Lowery says the single charge is not connected to Frost's school duties. But GBI is investigating whether there were other victims.

He said anyone with information on Frost can call the Dodge County Sheriff's Office at  (478) 374-8131 or the GBI at (478) 374-6988.

Lowery would not discuss any details of the alleged molestation, including when or where it may have taken place.

"A lot of people are involved in this, a lot of people have been interviewed," he said.

Dodge County school Supt. Melinda Dennis said Frost resigned earlier this school year as a teacher at the district's alternative learning center. She said Frost cited "health-related" reasons.

But she said Frost started working as a bus driver after resigning.

Dennis said Frost was an assistant softball coach during this school year and previously coached track and football.

But she said the GBI has assured her that "none of his actions had anything to do with school and school-related activities."
