CHESTER, Pa. (AP) – An Uber driver has been found guilty of raping an intoxicated woman he picked up at a casino in Montgomery County. The jury deliberated for nearly three hours on Thursday before finding Ahmed Elgaafary guilty of rape of an unconscious person, sexual assault and indecent assault.
Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan says 27-year-old Elgaafary will be sentenced at a later date and then likely deported to Egypt, where he is a citizen.READ MORE: 'A Whole Lot Of Questions That Have To Be Answered' About Texas School Shooting Response, Former Philadelphia Police Official Says

Elgaafary picked the woman up at Valley Forge Casino Resort in February. Prosecutors say he stretched the 15-minute ride into a 53-minute one to assault the woman.
His lawyer, Melissa Berlot McCafferty, argued the sex was consensual. She says the woman seduced Elgaafary and he initially lied rather than admitting he’d cheated on his pregnant wife.MORE NEWS: US Marshals Arrest Man Who Allegedly Tied Up FedEx Driver During February Carjacking In Frankford
