Head of Thanh Son Law Office and Attorney Nguyen Thanh Son, who was hired to protect her rights during the investigation process, confirmed that Nguyen Bich Quy, who was in charge of monitoring students on Gateway International School’s shuttle, has been charged with “involuntary manslaughter” because of her alleged negligence resulting in the death of a first grader inside a school bus in early August.
