Uber driver accused of sexual assault in Fairfield
FAIRFIELD — An Uber driver has been arrested on accusations that he sexually assaulted a female passenger.
The girl used the ride sharing service for a trip from Stonewall Lane in Fairfield when the driver, Dwaine Miller, 31, “made unwanted sexual contact” with her, as well as “overt sexual advances,” Fairfield police said.
The father of the juvenile passenger reported the sexual assault to police on Saturday, July 13.
Miller, who lives in Bridgeport, is a convicted felon with numerous arrests including robbery, assault and burglary, Fairfield police said.
Miller was charged with sexual assault in the third degree and is scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on July 26.
He was released after posting a $5,000 bond.
Miller was sentenced to nearly four years in jail in 2010 after he was found guilty on a conspiracy to commit robbery charge from 2009 in Bridgeport, according to court records. In 2010, he was also given a year in jail for a physical assault charge from 2009, while he was found guilty but not given jail time for a breach of peace charge, court records show.
