A former Uber driver convicted of sexual assault has been sentenced to two months of house arrest and 18 months of probation.
The Vancouver Police Department investigated the complaint in 2021, when a then-21-year-old woman came forward about being sexually assaulted during a trip from Vancouver to Coquitlam.
The offence occurred in August 2021.
