A former Ashland City Schools bus driver convicted of endangering children will spend 30 days in jail.

Cathy Goetz, 44, was sentenced Wednesday in Ashland County Juvenile Court to 180 days in the county jail with 150 days suspended. She was also fined $500 and placed on one-year probation.

The incident occurred on Jan. 17, when Goetz tried to stop the 8-year-old boy from screaming. According to the police report, Goetz did not know the child had autism.

Goetz struck the boy on his cheek and grabbed the front of his jacket. The entire incident was caught on the on-board bus camera.
