The Woodmore bus driver who was scheduled to appear today in Criminal Court has been passed to another date.
Johnthony Walker, 24, will next appear Aug. 31 in Judge Don Poole's courtroom.
Prosecutors say Walker was speeding along Talley Road on Nov. 21 when he overcorrected and crashed into a telephone pole and a tree with 37 Woodmore Elementary children on board. Six children died as a result and several more were injured.
Walker is charged with 34 crimes, including six counts of vehicular homicide and numerous counts of assault and reckless endangerment.
His attorney, Amanda Dunn, says her client is eligible for an alternative sentencing program called diversion that would allow Walker to get his charges dropped and expunged if he completes some form of probation or community service.
Dunn has not filed that application yet but plans to before the Aug. 31 court date. Prosecutors will respond to her request at that time.
