Tampa, Florida -- There's new information on the Hillsborough County bus driver accused of taking her foot and shoving an 8-year-old autistic girl off the bus.

The girl fell and broke her ankle.

School Bus surveillance video was enough to have Stephanie Wilkerson fired. Because she is no longer employed, she can no longer afford a lawyer.

During a court hearing Thursday, Wilkerson was assigned a public defender.

Wilkerson is charged with aggravated child abuse.
