FULTON COUNTY, Ind. – The woman behind the wheel when three children were hit and killed at their bus stop in Rochester has been found guilty, FOX59 reports.

Alyssa Shepherd, 24, was found guilty of three felony counts of reckless homicide, a count of criminal recklessness and passing a school bus causing injury.

She faces more than 20 years in prison.

Alivia Stahl, 9, and her 6-year-old twin brothers Xzavier and Mason Ingle were hit and killed as they were getting on their school bus in October 2018. A fourth child was also injured.

The family of the three victims pushed hard for a bill that increases penalties for a driver who disregard flashing red lights and stop arms on school buses.

It became state law on July 1. People can now face up to a year in jail and up to a $5,000 fine for passing a school bus with a stop arm out.
