A former Forsyth County school bus driver awaiting trial for allegedly taking inappropriate photos of a child in north Georgia was arrested in Cobb County late last week after he allegedly attempted to meet a 13-year-old girl for sex.

Authorities say that Steven Charles Reeve, 41, of Cumming was taken into custody on Thursday night after he allegedly traveled to a location in Marietta, where he believed he would be meeting a 13-year-old female that he had contacted online. Instead he was arrested by Cobb County Police Officers.

According to an arrest warrant, Reeves is accused of making contact with an individual he “knew to be a child” via a dating application and allegedly solicited sex from the minor.

Previously, Reeves was arrested in Towns County and charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, after he was accused of taking “inappropriate” photos of a child, according to Towns County District Attorney Jeff Langley.

Reeves was briefly held in the Towns County Jail but was released a day later under a bond of $15,000.

Langley said that as soon as his office has reviewed the new allegations made against Reeves in Cobb County, they will likely revoke bond for violating the terms of his release.

Reeves is currently being held in the Cobb County Jail under a bond of $27,720.

Prior to his imprisonment in Towns County, Reeves worked as a school bus driver for Forsyth County Schools for a span of four months, according to Forsyth County Schools Director of Communications Jennifer Caracciolo.
