School Bus Aide Kiarra Jones Accused of Abusing Children with Autism

April 15, 2024

LITTLETON, Colo. — Outraged parents gathered at the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education meeting, demanding accountability and change following disturbing revelations of alleged abuse on a school bus. The focus of their ire was Kiarra Jones, a paraprofessional, accused of assaulting nonverbal students with autism.

Jones, 28, faces charges of assault against at-risk juveniles after a video surfaced, depicting her striking a 10-year-old boy multiple times. The incident came to light after concerned parents noticed injuries on their children and reported them to authorities.

The victims, including the boy in the viral video, suffered severe injuries, including fractured bones and a knocked-out tooth. Their families, represented by the Rathod Mohamedbhai law firm, are pursuing legal action against Littleton Public Schools for allegedly neglecting earlier warnings about Jones’ behavior.

Despite mounting concerns raised as early as September 2023, Littleton Public Schools reportedly failed to act decisively. Even after repeated complaints and evidence presented by parents, the district allegedly conducted a superficial investigation, allowing the abuse to persist unchecked.

In response to the public outcry, Superintendent Todd Lambert expressed disgust and pledged to strengthen safety protocols. However, parents, including Blake McBride and Jessica Vestel, remain adamant about holding the district accountable, calling for resignations and advocating for proactive measures to safeguard students.

The victims and their families are encouraged to seek legal recourse. The Rathod Mohamedbhai law firm stands ready to provide support and representation for those affected by this distressing ordeal.
