On Tuesday, November, 4, Ahmed Tawfeeq, a Uber Driver in Elgin, IL, was found guilty of sexually assaulting a female passanger. Following a bench trial, Tawfeeq was found guilt of multiple counts, including attempted aggravated criminal sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, aggravated battery, unlawful restraint and promoting prostitution.
The conviction stems from an incident that occurred on June 16, 2017. According to prosecutors, Tawfeeq was driving his victim to her home in Prairie Grove when, the woman said he turned off the Uber app and sexually assaulted her in a parking lot.
According to court documents, Tawfeeq had driven for Uber for three years and has had over 3,500 rides.
He faces an additional case in which he is charged with harassing the woman after being accused of talking to an inmate in McHenry County jail and saying he would pay his bond and give him $6,000 if he would “harm, threaten or kidnap” the woman to keep her “from testifying against” him.
