She vomited in his car, he punished her with rape and a hefty fee.
What’s even the problem here?
An Uber driver in Pennsylvania was found guilty of raping an intoxicated passenger and then charging her $150 for vomiting in his vehicle.
Ahmed Elgaafary, 27, was convicted Thursday of multiple sexual assault charges, including rape of an unconscious person, sexual assault, and indecent assault.
Elgaafary, who is an Egyptian national, will be sentenced later on and then will likely be deported to his homeland, according to Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan.
The incident took place in February when the driver picked up his victim at Valley Forge Casino Resort near Philadelphia.
Assistant District Attorney Vincent Robert Cocco told the jurors that the driver stretched what was supposed to be a 15-minute ride to a 53-minute nightmare, which ended with her sexual assault in the backseat of the car.
Cocco added that he also charged her $150 for the longer ride and vomiting in the backseat of his car.
“She should have been safe,” he said. “He knew she was vulnerable. He knew she was alone. He knew she was too drunk.”
