A Mercer County bus driver is charged with the rape of a 64-year-old woman with intellectual disabilities.

66-year-old Rodney Sealand is charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a person with a mental disability, a first-degree felony; aggravated indecent assault with a person with a mental disability, a second-degree felony; indecent assault of a person with mental disability, a first-degree misdemeanor. 

According to the Pennsylvania State Police report, on Aug. 22, the police were notified of the alleged rape after the parent of the woman with disabilities said her daughter was approximately 45 minutes late getting dropped off from the McAR program which provides services for adults with disabilities in the county.

The report states that the alleged victim told her mother she was 'up the road at the airport parking lot kissing.'

According to the report, McAR program director Darin Vadala confronted Sealand about the accusations. Vadala told police that Sealand stated that sometimes the alleged victim gave him kisses before getting off the bus. Vadala said that Sealand told the program director that he was resigning. 

On Aug. 29, a forensic interview was conducted with the alleged victim at Mercer County Children's Advocacy, and Sealand was interviewed by Pennsylvania State Police on Sept. 5.  

The criminal complaint was filed in Judge Brian Arthur's court in Mercer County on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Bail for Sealand was set at $25,000. He is due back in Judge Arthur's courtroom on Sept. 28 at 3 p.m.

The company that contracts bus drivers for school and other programs in Mercer County said Sealand is no longer employed.
