The arraignment for a cab driver accused of raping a woman in Leisure World was continued today and pushed back to Aug. 30.
Orlando Bruce Bosley, 58, remains free on bail after the court ruled in June that there is enough evidence to move forward with a trial. Bosley initially pleaded not guilty to three counts of rape, and he will have to re-enter a plea following the June preliminary hearing. He is charged with rape by menace, rape by the use of drugs and rape of an unconscious person and could face up to eight years in prison if convicted.
Bosley picked up a 46-year-old woman in his taxi on July 6 in 2010 in Sunset Beach to take her to her mother’s home in Leisure World, Seal Beach, according to the Seal Beach Police Department. Police allege that Bosley punched the woman in the face as she was looking into her purse for cab fare and then dragged her into the house. Prosecutors allege Bosley raped her as she drifted in and out of consciousness.
Bosley has pleaded not guilty and has denied ever setting foot in the Leisure World home. According to Bosley, he simply dropped off the alleged victim. However, the Seal Beach Police Department has said that Bosley’s DNA was found inside the Leisure World home, where the attack allegedly occurred.
Investigators are asking the public's help identifying potential victims who may not have come forward after an assault. Anyone with information about this case or anyone who believes they have been a victim is encouraged to contact
