A Miami Uber Driver Raped a Passenger, Called It a Job 'Perk'

A 26-year-old Miami woman was allegedly raped over Labor Day weekend in 2017 by her Uber driver.

The Miami New Times reports, her assaulter, 51-year-old Fredrick Gaston, has a history of preying on drunk women in the Wynwood neighborhood and somehow “slipped through the cracks” of the app’s background checking service. He told the Miami police department that his job gets him “a lot of @@@@@” and said sex with passengers was one of “the perks of being an Uber driver.”

The victim entered Gaston’s car with a friend; after he dropped off the woman’s friend, Gaston allegedly penetrated the victim with his fingers. He later stopped the car and raped her. The New Times reports: “The woman would later tell detectives she was too terrified and intoxicated to stop him. She feared he had a gun and would harm her if she resisted.”

When he dropped her off at her apartment, she saw a neighbor entering the building, told him about the assault and asked him to call the police. When the police arrived, she was crying and repeating, “I’ve been raped.” When police questioned Gaston a month later, he told them, “We had sex, and it was good sex.”

Uber has a long history of unregulated sexual violence—in 2016, the company dismissed thousands of rape customer support tickets by dubbing them typos. For years, women across the country have accused their Uber drivers of sexual abuse and rape, in some cases, kidnapping, to little avail.

Gaston is currently in jail on a felony charge of sexual battery on a physically incapacitated victim and will stand trial October 29.

Why did it take a month to question him? How long did it take to find him? The woman has his license plate.

I like the " somehow "slipped through the cracks" of the app's background checking service."

Do stories from MORE THAN A YEAR AGO still count as "News?"
Apparently, Fredrick was off-app that night and was cruising for highly intoxicated women to take home. The victim was so drunk she initially got into the back of a police cruiser and laid down leading her to initially think a policeman had raped her. This is one reason it took the police so long to interview him. In fact, it is a minor miracle they managed to find him at all. Still, so much for a swift trial (starts this month).

This whole story is a rather weird one however. The driver was shrewd enough to prey on drunk women while working as a gypsy Uber to avoid detection yet waived his Miranda rights and openly bragged to police about all the p* he was getting driving Uber and how great the sex was with the victim. Doesn't really add up unless it was just total arrogance or even mental illness. Will be interested to see how this shakes out. Without a good lawyer, he probably goes to prison but the prosecutor did take their time getting the case in order.

Looks like OJ's bloated cousin from pulledclear's avatar. Great work, Fredrick. You're going places! (Straight to prison)

Doesn’t sound like a conviction will be too difficult based on the statement he gave the po po unless they forgot to read him his Miranda rights.
