BOSTON ( – A former Uber driver pleaded guilty to charges of rape, kidnapping and assault and battery Friday.

"The defendant preyed upon a young woman who trusted that he was who he portrayed himself to be," District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement.

Done admitted that on Dec. 6 around 7:3o p.m. a young woman entered his car believing him the be the driver set to pick her up.
