The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services revoked the license of 53-year-old Daniel King in May, citing his felony conviction.

King, who also was a former substitute school bus driver for Lincoln Public Schools, was sentenced in November to 90 days in jail and five years of probation. He was required to register as a sex offender for 25 years.

King was charged in January 2013 after police searched his home and found child pornography on a desktop computer and an external hard drive. Before his arrest, King had worked as a firefighter in Lincoln for 22 years and a substitute bus driver since 2009.
