Mesquite ISD bus driver attempted to solicit child for sex, police say

DALLAS, TX  –  A bus driver for Mesquite ISD was arrested Tuesday after police say he attempted to solicit a child for sex.

Ruben Castillo, 63, faces one count of criminal solicitation of a minor to commit sexual assault of a child, Mesquite police said.

Police did not release any additional details about the case but said that any other students who believe Castillo contacted them inappropriately should call the police department at 972-285-6336.

Castillo has worked as a bus driver for the district for 11 years, police said.

A Mesquite ISD spokeswoman said the district moved quickly to remove Castillo from his position and fire him after learning of his arrest.

“These charges are very troubling, and we are sickened that a trusted employee attempted to victimize one of our students,” the district said in a written statement. “While we are unaware of any other students who may have been impacted by Mr. Castillo’s actions, the district is cooperating fully with the police investigation.”

Castillo was being held in the Mesquite jail Tuesday evening, with bail set at $25,000, jail records showed.
