Ohio woman charged with raping, robbing taxi driver


An Ohio woman is being charged with raping and robbing a male taxi driver as an accomplice held the driver at knifepoint, according to The Smoking Gun.

Police said Brittany Carter, 23, and two black males, one identified as 20-year-old Cory Jackson, called for a cab back on January 28 at the TownePlace Suites hotel. During the trip, Jackson allegedly held a knife to the throat of the 29-year-old driver’s throat.

Carter allegedly performed a sexual act on the man as he was held down. Carter and Jackson then stole $32 from the driver, who worked for Trinity Express Cab Service.

Despite having a knife to his throat, the driver did not suffer any injuries during the attack.

Carter is accused of “having purposely compelled” the driver to engage in sexual conduct by “force or threat.” She is being held in Hancock County jail on a $60,000 bond, according to The Smoking Gun.

This isn’t the first time Carter has been involved in a crime.

In 2016, she was indicted twice on drug charges and is accused of possessing heroin and allowing her car to be sued to traffic the drug.

Jackson, who is also wanted on a murder warrant out of Lima, has been charged with aiding and abetting Carter’s crimes as well as aggravated robbery.

Once the third driver is identified, he too will face charges.
