OCDA SEEKS PUBLIC’S HELP IN IDENTIFYING POTENTIAL ADDITIONAL VICTIMS OF CAB DRIVER CHARGED WITH RAPING PASSENGER AFTER KNOCKING HER UNCONSCIOUS
WESTMINSTER – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying potential additional victims of a taxi driver charged with rape for sexually assaulting a female passenger after knocking her unconscious. Orlando Bruce Bosley, 57, Westminster, faces a maximum sentence of eight years in state prison if convicted and is out of custody on $100,000 bail. He is scheduled for continued arraignment Jan. 18, 2011, at 9:00 a.m. in Department W-15, West Justice Center, Westminster.
Late on the night of July 6, 2010, 45-year-old Jane Doe called “A White & Yellow Cab, Inc.,” (also known as “1-800-4MY-TAXI Yellow Cab” or “A-Taxi Cab”) 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.
Anyone with additional information or who believes they have been a victim is encouraged to contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Randy Litwin at (714) 347-8794.
Deputy District Attorney Nikki Buracchio of the Sexual Assault Unit is prosecuting this case.
