Child molester gets term of 140 years to life

A former driver for the company that delivers children to District 51 schools was sentenced Monday to essentially a life term for molesting a number of young victims.

Faye Ann Morosini, 51, on Monday heard from two of her victims and listened to a letter read aloud from another, and also learned of her 140 years to life sentence handed down by Mesa County Chief District Judge Brian Flynn.

Morosini worked as a school bus driver for Student Transportation of America before the Colorado Department of Human Services referred a case about her to Grand Junction police in July 2017. Two young children allegedly disclosed detailed information to a therapist that Morosini molested them. One child was between the ages of 7 and 8 when the reported incidents of abuse occurred, while the other child was approximately 10, according to an arrest affidavit.

According to investigators, the children were coerced into performing sex acts on one another, often with Morosini, and, during at least one incident with a stranger.

A sentence order for Morosini indicates that at least four victims were a part of the case.

A district spokesperson previously said the assaults committed by Morosini did not involve any students associated with her job as a driver for district schools.

In all, Morosini was convicted on 13 counts, including sexual assault on a child as a pattern of abuse and from a position of trust, as well as two additional aggravated sentence-enhancing counts.
