BALTIMORE - A Baltimore City jury convicted Samuel Queen yesterday for charges of attacking a young woman at knife point in his hack taxi cab.
After completing her shift at work around 7:00 p.m. on December 6, 2010, the victim went to catch a bus, as she routinely did.
When no bus arrived, she opted to hail a cab.
Queen responded and picked her up on Belair Road and agreed to take her downtown. Instead, Queen drove her to Clifton Park, pulled a knife and forced her to perform sex acts and raped her.
In addition to first degree rape and first degree sex offense, the jury also returned guilty verdicts on counts of second degree rape, second degree sex offense, kidnapping, intent to injure with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment.
Queen faces a maximum sentence of life plus 73 years in prison.
