Judge reserves decision at former Halifax taxi driver's trial

A judge has reserved his decision at a former Halifax taxi driver's trial on a charge of sexual assault.

The Crown alleges Houssen Milad kissed a female passenger on top of her head while driving her home to Armdale in June 2016 and groped her right buttock before she got out of the vehicle.

The 26-year-old complainant told Judge Gregory Lenehan she did not consent to being touched by the driver.

Milad testified in his own defence, denying through an Arabic interpreter that the woman was ever in his vehicle.
