Man pleads guilty to sex assault of woman he drove to depression program

A former van driver who transported elderly people to a program for senior citizens with depression has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a client.

Fifty-seven-year-old Tilaye Teshome Wake entered a plea Wednesday to one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a ward, patient, client or prisoner. He faces between six months and two years in prison when he is sentenced in D.C. Superior Court on June 25.

Prosecutors say Wake transported a 75-year-old woman to the day program on several days in January.

On February 1, Wake called the victim and asked if she would like a ride to the program. She said she wasn't feeling well and wouldn't be going.

Later in the day, Wake showed up at the woman's southeast Washington apartment, where he assaulted her.

Maybe she got mad because he wasn't on his J-O-B and TCB.

"And at 75 she should be grateful to get some one more time."

She should be "grateful" to be raped??! That's just sick.

Oh yeah, and it's "ejaculator." An "ejector" is something like a device that expels pilots out of airplanes.

There is no respect of person or life. This man should get 5 years minimum. And the first two posters, I hope you live to 75 and enjoy the abuse that is surely coming to your door. Karma is a B****.
