TEN YEARS JAIL FOR PEMBROKESHIRE CABBIE WHO RAPED WOMAN IN HIS CAB


A taxi driver raped a passenger in the back of his cab as he drove her home, a court has heard. According to WalesOnline, Anthony Marcus Jones picked up the woman after a night out and assaulted her in a car park. Jones, 43, denied rape but was convicted following a trial at Swansea Crown Court. The court heard the cab- bie has a previous caution for assaulting a woman, and the judge said he did not think Jones should have been working as a taxi driver at all with that background.


The court heard the attack took place in Pem- brokeshire the early hours of the morning in April 2018. The victim had spent the night


in pubs in Milford Haven and was extremely drunk, the court was told. Jones collected the woman in his cab and raped her after parking the vehicle in a car park. He maintained the sex was consensual.


Judge Paul Thomas QC told the defendant it must have been apparent to him how intoxicated his fare was and he had “cynically and callously” taken advantage of her. He told the driver he had treated the woman “like a piece of meat for use to use sexually as you wished” and said he had had sex with her when “she was at best semi-conscious”. Jones was sentenced to ten years’ jail and will serve two-thirds before being released on licence. He will be a registered sex offender for life.

According to Armagh I, dealing with the 30-year-old’s case, the deputy district judge commented: “I find this sort of behaviour really reprehensible”. Adam Kyle Foster, appeared for sentencing on disorderly behaviour


and common assault at Craigavon Magistrates’ on Friday 16 April. The prosecution outlined that on June 15, at 2am, police were flagged down by a taxi driver on Main Street, Moira., Co Down. He stated that this defendant had ran and punched the window of his vehicle before entering it. The injured party told police that


Foster had called him a “f****** Paki b******” and asked the taxi driver to fight him. The defendant was subsequently arrested and made no comment to all question put to him during interview. Defence barrister Joel Lindsay commented that he had seen footage which showed the taxi stopping and an “exchange between the two”.

And now Smith has joined him behind bars after he was convicted at Northampt on Crown Court.


The incident happened at 1am in June 2019, when the cabbie made his way to Kensington Walk to pick up a person called “Lucy”. When he arrived at the location Alexander and Smith got in, claiming


“Lucy” was one of their girlfriends and she would be down in a minute. But one of the men then pulled out a hand- gun and demanded the driver hand over all his money and his wallet. The two men then made off. Det Insp Dave Harley, said: “We were absolutely determined to bring both of these men to justice and I’m really pleased for the victim, who has shown tremendous courage throughout this case, that we have managed to do so.”
