An Uber driver will spend 7 ½ to 15 years in prison for his conviction on charges he sexually assaulted a 24-year-old female passenger.
Forty-seven-year-old Abdellah Elkaddi was sentenced Thursday by a Montgomery County judge.
Elkaddi was acquitted in April of rape and aggravated indecent assault while a victim is unaware of what is happening. But a jury found him guilty of sexual assault, indecent assault and aggravated indecent assault.
Elkaddi's defense attorney had claimed the sex was consensual.
But prosecutors say Elkaddi attacked the woman in June 2015 after she called for a ride from Philadelphia to Norristown to get her car. Authorities say she eventually fell asleep and woke up to find Elkaddi sexually assaulting her.
