Staffordshire Taxi Driver Jailed For Raping Sleeping Passenger
A taxi driver from Staffordshire who raped a passenger after she fell asleep in his cab has been jailed for 10 years.
The victim who's in her 20s woke up to find 32 year old Shanzad Akram from Burton- on-Trent attacking her on her way home from a night out last year.
Akram, 32, of Beech Street, was also ordered to register as a sex offender indefinitely Police said.
Detective Constable Peter Robinson said: ``It's been a year since the attack took place and it's understandably been a very difficult and upsetting time for the victim.
``She has been extremely brave, not just for coming forward but for taking to the witness stand. Her strength in giving evidence no doubt helped to convict Akram.
``She was also very well supported by her friends and family throughout and I hope she is satisfied with the sentence and can hopefully start to move on with her life.''
The family of a man who died in Stafford in 2015 have put up a significant reward for fresh information that leads to a conviction.
