OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

Court documents obtained by WLOX News reveal new details about the disturbing allegations facing a former Ocean Springs bus driver.

Sergio Sandoval, 64, is charged with 32 counts of touching a child for lustful purposes.

A police report taken on Oct. 7, alleges between early September and the time of the report, Sandoval touched a female child outside and inside her pants on several occasions.

The child told police Sandoval said it was "their secret" and for her not to tell anyone. According to the report, there were other children on the bus when these incidents took place.

Sandoval was fired a day after the report was filed and school officials reviewed bus surveillance video.

The day after losing his job, Sandoval was arrested at his home. Sandoval spent four days in jail and bonded out on a $350,000 bond.

WLOX News went to Sandoval's Labranche Avenue home in Ocean Springs to ask him about the allegations, but no one answered the door.

An Ocean Springs police detective said the investigation is still ongoing, and detectives are currently reviewing more than 100 hours of bus surveillance video.

While the detective said it is possible there are more victims, no others have come forward since Sandoval's arrest.

The case has been handed over to the Jackson County District Attorney's Office, but a police department spokesman tells us a grand jury has not heard the evidence Ocean Springs detectives have against the school bus driver.

If Sandoval is indicted by a grand jury and his case goes to court, he faces up to 480 years in prison.
