More Chess Crime

From The Chicago Tribune:
A south suburban school bus company is under fire today after it allegedly hired a convicted child molester to drive Chicago schoolchildren to an out-of-town chess tournament, WGN-Ch. 9 reported.

William McAllister, 60, of Calumet City says his superiors at the Coleman Bus Co. in Dolton knew about his criminal conviction, WGN reported. Police in Channahon, near Joliet, pulled over McAllister's bus Sunday morning after he allegedly made an illegal U-turn.

On board were 29 chess players from Currie, Kelly and Whitney Young High Schools in Chicago, CLTV reported. They were returning from a tournament in Peoria and had stayed in the same motel as the driver.
