Orlando Bruce Bosley is a bad cabbie, say prosecutors.

The current case could fetch Bosley eight years in state prison if he is convicted. According to the OCDA:

Late on the night of July 6, 2010, 45-year-old Jane Doe called "A White & Yellow Cab Inc." for a ride after having drinks in Sunset Beach. Bosley is accused of picking up the intoxicated victim in his cab and driving her to her mother's Seal Beach home, where she was staying while her mother was out of town.

When Jane Doe looked down into her purse for cab fare, Bosley is accused of punching the victim in the face and rendering her temporarily unconscious. The defendant is accused of taking Jane Doe to her home and raping her inside the house as she went in and out of consciousness.


One hopes the woman did not pay her cab fare.

Original Post by Chasen Marshall, Jan. 4, 2:02 p.m.: 57-year-old Orlando Bruce Bosley got a call for a cab request in Sunset Beach and showed up to pick up the intoxicated woman, just as a good cab driver is supposed to do. He transported the woman to her mother's Seal Beach home, where she was staying while mom was gone.

The OC district attorney's report describes what happened next.

When Jane Doe looked down into her purse for cab fare, Bosley is accused of punching the victim in the face and rendering her temporarily unconscious. The defendant is accused of taking Jane Doe to her home and raping her inside the house as she went in and out of consciousness.


Authorities are asking that anyone who was or may know of additional victims of Bosley to contact the supervising district-attorney investigator, Randy Litwin, at (714) 347-8794.

After sexually assaulting his passenger, Bosley faces charges of rape, which holds a maximum sentence of eight years.

He is currently out of custody on $100,000 bail and faces arraignment on Jan. 18 at West Justice Center in Westminster.
