A Wake County man found guilty of assaulting a bus driver will get his job back.

In January, a jury found Derry Schmidt guilty of assault in an incident last year outside Cary Elementary School.

Bus driver Jametta Farrar says Schmidt hit her with his car, used a racial slur and pushed her to the ground.

He was fired but has now been reinstated as an engineer with the State Department of Transportation.
