"Monstrous" Taxi driver jailed for rape and multiple counts of sexual assault

21 Sep 2018

 

A taxi driver from Newbury, Berkshire, has been jailed for the rape of one woman and the sexual assaults of three others between January 1 and February 24 this year.

Ruhen Miah, 42, pleaded guilty at Reading Crown Court, where he was described as a “highly dangerous man” by a psychiatric expert for the defence team.

The father of three had been suffering from “adjustment disorder” after losing his restaurant business, according to Dr Michael Alcock, who said his behaviour was completely “out of character” labelling his actions as “monstrous”.

Miah targeted vulnerable women who were intoxicated through alcohol and had trusted him to carry out his job as a trustworthy taxi driver.

The court heard that three of Miah’s victims were attacked inside his vehicle late at night and a forth victim was taken to a flat of one of his friends, who was out of the country, and raped.

Police were able to track Miah down after two of the victims came forward to report the attacks.

Judge Angela Morris, sentencing Miah, said: 

 

"You took vulnerable females into your clutches for your own sexual gratification.

"They were defenceless and all were extremely intoxicated."

She added his offending was "concerning and inexplicable".

Miah pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault, one count of rape and one count of attempted rape.

He was sentenced to 14 years in jail.
