Rapist gets seven years

A TAXI driver who raped and sexually assaulted a female passenger after driving her to an isolated area, has been jailed for seven years.

John Ryan (43), of Clonard, Westbury, Limerick, was found guilty at the Central Criminal Court last November. Ryan, whose leg was amputated after a serious accident when he was 19, had pleaded not guilty to rape and sexual assault of the 21-year-old woman on October 17, 2007, after picking her up in his cab a short distance from a Limerick nightclub.
