Ex-Uber Driver Arrested for Rape in San Diego, Trial Begins

Posted on August 16th, 2017 by Mona Zemsky

Former Uber driver John David Sanchez, 53, of San Diego, is accused of serial rape; the youngest alleged victim is 13 years old. In addition to being a former driver for Uber, he also worked as a DJ and ran a video production/distribution company.

There are a total of seven victims in this case. Sexual abuse is learned behavior, in addition to the seven known victims, it’s not unlikely that there are more victims over the course of Sanchez’ ‘career’ of molestation.

There are now new charges, to which he has also pleaded not guilty.
