Taxi driver accused of exposing himself to passenger

A 60-year-old taxi driver was today accused of exposing himself to a female passenger.

The man pleaded not guilty to intruding on the privacy of a female, committing an indecent act and using offensive words and behaviour.

Crown counsel Susan Mulligan told Magistrates' Court the offences took place as he drove his 32-year-old passenger along North Shore Road in Hamilton Parish.

She said the woman had earlier called a taxi after shopping in Hamilton, and asked to be taken to St George's.

As she got in the car, the man said: “I like all the leg you're showing me.”

As the taxi passed through the Shelly Bay area, he started playing with his penis and asked if the woman wanted to “come play with [it]”.

The woman said she didn't appreciate the gesture and asked him to “put your penis back in your pants”.

The driver then told her he would drive her to St George's for free if she “spent some time” at his house.

Today in court, the man admitted driving the woman but denied the charges put before him.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner adjourned the matter to August 23 for mention, and remanded the man into custody.
