A Teesside cabbie who exposed himself in-front of an elderly passenger was spared jail time, but lost his marriage and job as a result. Russell Lee Jordan, 48, left the “vulnerable” old woman shaking with fear as the driver took advantage by first removing his clothes. “He said to her, ‘Don’t be shy’,” prosecutor Rob Stephenson said at York Crown Court. Jordan then exposed himself at a flat in Whitby and performed a sex act on himself much to the displeasure of the elderly woman according to Teesside Live. Mr Stephenson told the court “She was numb and in shock,” The passenger was a regular customer of the cab service which Jordan was subsequently throw out of. The barrister defending Jordan told the court it was out of character and a “moment of madness”. He added he thought “she might like him”. Jordan was given a four-month suspended jail sentence as the judge did not deem the driver to be a risk to the public. He was however told to sign on the sex-offenders’ register for seven years and complete 20 rehabilitation days.
