Shepherd found guilty

A guilty verdict from the jury in Fulton County.


Alyssa Shepherd, the driver who hit and killed three children at their school bus stop, has been convicted on three counts of reckless homicide and one count of criminal recklessness.


Earlier, she testified that she didn't realize it was a bus in the early morning darkness and didn't see the children until it was too late.


Fulton County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Mars was pleased with the verdict.



Sentencing is scheduled December 18.



The defense argued that the state was trying to "criminalize an accident."


Family members of the victims react to the verdict.
