We have been discussing certain criminal justice truths as they apply to two high-profile matters. In one case, a dentist was charged with sexual assault. In the other, a dentist was charged with a drug-related fraud.
In both cases, the defendants are alleged to have abused their position of trust in order to perform their evil deeds.
Today, the Boston Globe , tells us of the arraignment in another such matter, this time playing out in Malden District Court.
This case involves 34-year-old Darnell K. Booth (hereinafter, the “Defendant”) stands accused of the rape of a 16-year-old Everett girl last month.
According to the Commonwealth, the Defendant was working as an Uber driver at the time the two met. He drove her in June and then allegedly contacted her through Snapchat. On July 5, she needed a ride to a summer school program. Coincidentally, the Defendant contacted her on Snapchat to ask if she needed a ride.
