Driver facing criminal charges after alleged attack on passenger

Many different professions require employees to provide services to the public. Uber drivers encounter numerous individuals every day, and these interactions are typically uneventful. However, a single instance that involves a dissatisfied customer can lead to accusations. One driver is facing criminal charges after she allegedly assaulted a pregnant woman in Georgia.

The woman had called for an Uber ride and attempted to flag the driver down upon arrival. She claims that the driver did not stop immediately and had an adverse reaction when asked why. The rider then left the car and alleges that the female driver got out, threw her down, and began kicking her in the stomach. The driver was later arrested on suspicion of assault, and her employment with the company was terminated.

Charges of this nature can impact a person's life in various ways. Loss of employment can create significant financial burdens, and a successful conviction may lead to other hardships, even if it does not include time behind bars. Having a similar offense on record may impact a person's ability to find another job and can diminish his or her standing within the community.

When facing criminal charges, forming an early defense is often considered crucial to the outcome. Many people in Georgia seek the advice of a criminal defense attorney when facing similar charges for advice on how to obtain the best overall outcome given the situation. An experienced attorney can examine all evidence against a person, which may assist in forming a strategy to combat the charges, possibly getting them reduced, or in some cases, dropped altogether.
