2 Years for Taxi Driver Who Molested Teenager

Taxi-driver, forty-four-year-old Nestor Gallindo was today sentenced to two years behind bars even as he maintained his innocence after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting a fifteen-year-old minor, who was a passenger in his taxi. Today at mitigation plea, Gallindo, who was provided with a translator, asked the court to consider the fact that he has a family to take care of. But Senior Magistrate Aretha Ford believes that as a taxi-driver, Gallindo violated the trust of his fare when he touched her inappropriately. The girl told the court that he threatened her that if she told anyone, he would have her mother fired from her job.  The inappropriate touches occurred while Gallindo was driving so he told the court that it was next to impossible for him to have done what the child claimed when his hands were occupied.
