MALDEN (AP) — A former Massachusetts Uber driver charged with raping a 16-year-old passenger is headed back to court.
Darnell Booth is scheduled to appear in Malden District Court on Monday for a hearing to determine whether he is a danger to society.
The 36-year-old Boston man was held without bail after pleading not guilty to rape at his arraignment on Thursday.
Prosecutors say Booth was giving the Everett girl a ride to a summer school program on July 5 when he drove her to a parking lot and raped her. They say the girl had contacted Booth through Snapchat because he had given her a ride in June.
Booth’s attorney says her client “adamantly asserts” his innocence.
San Francisco-based Uber has said Booth wasn’t driving for it at the time.
