BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts woman who alleges her Uber driver raped says she’s furious after a court oversight allowed the driver to post bail and flee the country.
Emily Murray, of Weymouth, told WBZ-TV on Thursday that she’s speaking out because she doesn’t want what happened to her to happen to someone else.
The Massachusetts Trial Court said 30-year old Frederick Amfo posted $10,000 bail on Friday. He was charged with raping Murray on April 8 as he drove her from Quincy to her home in Weymouth.
Amfo was given 24-hours to surrender his passport, but fled to his native Ghana instead.
