ORWELL, Vt. -

A former school bus driver is charged with sexually assaulting a child.

Rein Kolts, 68, pleaded not guilty to the aggravated sexual assault of a 13-year-old from New Hampshire. The girl told police she was assaulted several times over the last two years. Up until recently the Orwell man was a bus driver and coach at the Shoreham School.

School officials and prosecutors are now reaching out to families whose children may have interacted with Kolts, but detectives say whether you know the accused or not, now's the time to talk to your kid about adults who might make them feel uncomfortable.

"Have a conversation with your child, it does not have to be a scary conversation but use this opportunity to talk with your children about anybody, not just Mr. Kolts,” said Detective Sgt. Ruth Whitney of the Addison County Unit for Special Investigators.

Kolts was released to his wife on bail. He is due back in court in June.
