Richard O’Brien


A taxi driver who abused a 94-year-old woman every time he collected her from her retirement home has been jailed after admitting sexual assault.

Richard O’Brien, 58, specialised in driving elderly people to hospital appointments and helping them do their shopping and advertised his services on a business card which bore the slogan ‘Peace of mind – piece of cake.’

But he was arrested after a 94-year old woman who used his taxi services told police he had been sexually assaulting her at the care home she lived in in Cumbria.

Officers installed a secret spy camera in the frail woman’s flat, and within days O’Brien was caught on film abusing her.
