Florida car service driver accused of sex crimes

It is not unusual for individuals to utilize car services in order to get to and from their destinations. However, these car rides could take unexpected turns for passengers and drivers alike. There have been reports of individuals allegedly being sexually assaulted, robbed or otherwise mistreated after getting into a car or picking someone up. As a result, criminal charges relating to sex crimes and other alleged actions have been filed in several instances.

One man in Florida was recently charged after being accused of sexually assaulting a woman. Reports stated that the man worked for the car service Lyft, and he had purportedly picked up the woman at a bar after she had ordered a ride from the service. The woman claims that the driver did not take her home; instead, he took her to another residence where he allegedly made her go inside so that he could sexually assault her. 

Authorities stated that it is possible that there have been other victims. As a result of this particular case, it was reported that the 49-year-old man has been charged with sexual battery, kidnapping and false imprisonment. He has also been banned from the Lyft company. The man was still in custody at the time of the report.

Allegations of sex crimes could follow accused individuals for the rest of their lives. Therefore, the man charged in this case will undoubtedly want to work toward creating and presenting the most meaningful criminal defense in his power. In order to do so, he may wish to seek assistance from an experienced Florida defense attorney.
