Prosecutors accepted Cadesha Bishop’s plea agreement to lesser charge than murder for killing an elderly man off an RTC bus in 2019.

Las Vegas, NV-

The woman, Cadesha Bishop, who was charged with manslaughter charges for the incident from March 21, 2019, who pushed an elderly man off a RTC Bus in Las Vegas reached a plea deal with the prosecutors. The plea deal reached was that Bishop would plead guilty to abuse of an older or vulnerable person resulting in substantial bodily harm or death. The plea was accepted on December 27th in a court hearing.

The incident in which she was charged gained national notoriety as the victim, 74-year-old Serge Fournier, died about a month later as a result of hitting his head on the sidewalk after being pushed off the bus by Bishop after Fournier asked her to be nicer to other passengers as a result of her cussing out other passengers on the bus. Statements from the police report state that Fournier was pushed “with enough force that he never touched any of the steps.” They deducted he landed about 8 feet away from the bus. The incident took place near the intersection of Fremont Street and 13th Street.

The sentence hearing for Bishop is scheduled for next month on February 18th.
