(KFVS) - A school bus driver convicted of reckless homicide was sentenced to one year behind bars.
Anita Roach drove the bus that left the road and rolled over, killing a six-year old Logan Simpson back in May of 2011.
Twenty other children and adults were injured in the crash.
The defense says Roach followed her training and steered toward a deer running along the road, rather than swerve away from it.
Prosecutors say narcotics in Roach's system impaired her and she should not have been driving.
A jury found Roach not guilty of manslaughter and guilty of reckless homicide, according to the Carlisle County courthouse.
