An Uber driver was sentenced on Tuesday to nine years in prison for raping a drunken woman who fell asleep in the back of his ride-hailing car in Sydney. Muhammad Naveed, 41, had pleaded not guilty in the New South Wales state District Court to raping the 22-year–old woman in October 2015. He argued that the sex was consensual. He picked the woman up from Sydney’s Kings Cross nightclub precinct and raped her in a side street. Judge Deborah Payne ordered Naveed to serve at least six years and four months in prison before he can be considered for parole.
