CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A former school bus driver accused of impregnating a 14-year-old student is now facing more charges, Charleston police spokesperson Charles Francis says.
Kevin Michael Wesley Jr. is now being charged with first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and criminal solicitation of a minor.
The Charleston Police Computer Crime Unit believes Wesley purchased a cell phone for the teen and continued to solicit her into sending him nude photos.
Police say when the girl was no longer on Wesley's bus route, between September 2015 and December 2015, he continued to keep in contact with her.
After several months of correspondence via text and phone, Wesley persuaded the victim to sneak out of her residence to meet him, investigators say.
The juvenile eventually told her mother about the improper relationship, according to a police report.
Wesley was charged with second and third-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor after the victim gave birth.
The former bus driver was served at the Charleston County Detention Center on Monday, Francis said.
