Teacher who is also Uber driver pleads guilty to sex crimes

Some Uber drivers have faced accusations of kidnapping and sexual misconduct in the past. A South Carolina sixth grade teacher who is also an Uber driver was recently arrested after a woman accused him of sex crimes and kidnapping. The 39-year-old man was reportedly arrested after the woman identified him during a lineup.

The woman alleges that she and a male companion were picked up by the Uber driver who failed to drop her off at a given location but continued driving instead. She claims he demanded payment in the form of sexual favors. The arrest affidavit claims that the woman was sexually assaulted by the driver before being kicked out of the car.

The woman claims to have walked to the highway to get help, and she was then struck by a vehicle. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries before she reported the sexual assault incident to the police. The Uber driver was arrested and later admitted to sexual misconduct. He was subsequently placed on paid administrative leave by the school district.

The man is now facing charges of criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping. When facing charges of sex crimes, an accused person may want to seek the support and guidance of an experienced South Carolina criminal defense attorney who focuses on protecting the rights of those facing such charges. The circumstances of each case are unique, and they will be assessed to devise a defense strategy. If there is a strong case against the accused person, a lawyer may advise him or her to plead guilty to obtain a plea agreement that may benefit the accused. If necessary, a strong defense can be presented to the court.
