Uber driver, John Kamens from Athens, GA has been charged for raping a passenger after dropping her off at home on December 14th of 2015.
The woman was attending a Christmas party and called Uber to drive her to her car. They said she drove herself home, but the driver, John Kamens who is 49, followed her home. As she left her child’s bedroom, the victims said she saw Kamens in her living room, where he then allegedly sexually assaulted her.
Immediately after, the woman called the police and fortunately the authorities tracked Kamens down and arrested him.
Uber says Kamens is permanently banned from working and using Uber services as a passenger. Their statement says, “Our thoughts are with the victim as she recovers from this horrific ordeal.”
It was also revealed that Kamens is a full-time Athens-Clarke County employee, working as a customer service representative.
“Just shock. He’s a long-term employee here, and he’s been great for our department. So, we were all very surprised,” said Solid Waste Director Suki Janssen.
Kamens was charged with aggravated sodomy with force and first-degree burglary.
