Pervs shared rent boy, 13, in a public toilet; Bus driver and barman face jail.
Perverts William Stevenson, 43, and John Dow, 56, were caught on a secret spy camera committing sordid gay sex acts with the boy in a public toilet.
And last night the sick perverts, both from Stirling, faced jail and the sack.
Police set up the secret spy camera in public toilets last year after complaints from residents.
A number of men including widower Dow and unmarried Stevenson were interviewed after police swoops.
Fiona Sasan, prosecuting, said Stevenson "claimed the boy had passed a note to him looking for money for sex".
And a shocked courtroom heard details of the disgusting sex acts involving the local schoolboy, who can't be named for legal reasons.
Dow, of Lamberton Drive, and Stevenson, of Braehead Road, both Stirling, pleaded guilty to the offences, which took place in August and September last year.
Bar manager Dow and bus driver Stevenson were freed on bail and will be sentenced on March 24.
Sheriff Marcus Green said: "I consider this to be a very serious matter.
"We are dealing with offences against a child of 13. The question of custody is very much in my mind."
Last night Brian Peat, a spokesman for Stevenson's employers Midland Bluebird, said: "The conviction will be notified to the Traffic Commissioner.
"We as a company now have a decision to take and certainly the commissioner has a decision to take over his driver's licence.
"He will have driven school buses as well as service buses. Drivers go through a lot of different duties and inevitably those duties do include school buses."
A spokesman for Stirling Council, who employ Midland Bluebird to provide school transport, said the council was "extremely disturbed".
A council insider added: "The issue highlights what social workers have been saying - that all people whose jobs come into contact with children should be subject to police checks."
Gordon Thompson, general manager of Stirling University Students' Association - who employ Dow - said: "This is news to us - shocking news. We'll need to speak to him urgently."
