WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) - A former Yolo County adult bus driver has been convicted of sexually assaulting a mentally disabled passenger for several years.

Yolo County prosecutors say 74-year-old Thomas Vukodinovich of Woodland was found guilty last week of rape, attempted rape and five counts of oral copulation, among other charges.

The Sacramento Bee reports Vukodinovich was charged in connection with acts he committed aboard a bus run by Yolo Employment Services, a nonprofit adult day care provider where he worked since 2005.

Prosecutors say the woman and Vukodinovich revealed they had engaged in "regular and repeated" sex acts dating back to 2009. They say the victim was "moderately mentally disabled" and was unable to consent to the sexual acts.

Prosecutors say Vukodinovich could be sentenced to up 27 years in state prison.
