SEATTLE —

A Rainier School District bus driver who was convicted of assault for groping teens and women says an excessive intake of caffeine drove him to the acts.

KOMO-TV http://is.gd/8Et0qu reports 51-year-old Kenneth Sands, 51, tried to explain himself at his sentencing on Tuesday.

Sands had been convicted in Lewis County Superior Court of molesting three high school volleyball players and two women during and after a volleyball game in Onalaska on Oct. 18.

Sands was at the game as a spectator and was not the bus driver.

Sands says it was caffeine that had driven him to act out of character. He told the court too much caffeine caused a psychotic episode.

Sands was sentenced to 30 days for each of the five counts of fourth-degree assault.
