POUGHKEEPSIEK, N.Y. (AP) A former school bus monitor for a Hudson Valley school district has pleaded guilty to charges that he forced a mentally disabled teenager to perform a sex act on him.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports (http://pojonews.co/1bqq50Z ) that 57-year-old Charles Kane III of Hopewell Junction pleaded guilty Wednesday in Dutchess County Court to criminal sexual act.

State police said Kane forced the 18-year-old woman to perform oral sex on him on a Wappingers Central School District bus last November.

Kane faces eight years in state prison when he's sentenced in August. He must register as a sex offender and can no longer live or work near a school.

School officials said Kane worked for the district for 10 years.
