4:10pm Monday 28th October 2013 in Echo News
A TAXI driver is to stand trial in February, accused of sexually assaulting a teenage passenger.
Idowu Adewunmi, 38, is charged with inappropriately touching the 19-year-old woman while dropping her off at home after a night out.
Adewunmi denied sexually assaulting the teenager, when he appeared before Basildon Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
The Echo has previously reported his taxi had been suspended by Basildon Council until the conclusion of the case.
Adewuni was committed for trial at Basildon Crown Court on February 10 and freed on bail, with a condition barring him from contacting the complainant.
