Fargo bus aide gets 4 years for flashing student

A 67-year-old accused of exposing his genitals on a school bus to a student at Fargo's Discovery Middle School is heading to prison on a four-year sentence.

Darreld Olander pleaded guilty in Cass County District Court on Monday to charges of indecent exposure and gross sexual imposition, both felonies.

Olander flashed a student on a bus in the Discovery parking lot on Nov.3, police said. He was a bus aide for Valley Bus, a private firm contracted to provide bus service to Fargo schools.

Reid Brady, an assistant Cass County state's attorney, said Olander will also serve five years of supervised probation after his release from prison.
