Only defending yourself against a sex charge is a permanent record that will ruin your life. Never transport an unescorted minor. There are organized criminals, including attorneys, who prey on persons offering any professional service to minors. They will get you charged then blackmail you to get them to back off. Same fraudsters stage traffic accidents if they think your black Escalade is livery. They see a $60B target with a bullseye on your ass. This is not BS. I've been a taxi driver 43 years.I read stories all the time in the PBPost where cars run from the police, then get caught. The driver is charged for fleeing and whatever, other passengers are charged with drug position if they are holding, and others are not charged with anything.
I'm certain picking up a passenger under 18 is not a felony anywhere in the USA.
Sex offenders must be convicted, not just charged.
What other BS have you posted online?
