Burlington Driver Examiner Charged With Sexual Assault

A Ministry of Transportation driver examiner faces a sexual assault charge following an alleged encounter with a Toronto woman taking her school bus operator's test.

Halton Regional Police say the 45-year-old alleged victim was taking her exam in Burlington on the afternoon of March 3. She was told by the instructor to drive to a secluded location in Burlington where he reportedly sexually assaulted her.

The victim wasn't physically injured during the encounter but 36-year-old Melvin Jason Button of Hamilton is charged with one count of sexual assault. He'll make his first court appearance April 22.

Anyone with information that can help investigators in this case should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
