Polk school bus attendant abused special needs students, deputies say

A Polk County school bus attendant was arrested Thursday on charges that she abused six special needs students — including three children.

Juanita Tappin, 43, of Lakeland, faces three counts of child abuse and three counts of abusing a disabled adult. The Polk County School District placed her on administrative leave after her arrest.

The abuse was “intentional, malicious, and unprovoked,” according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
