Criminal Justice Quote: Theft of Taxi Services

A Massachusetts woman was arrested after allegedly racking up a taxi fare so high she couldn't afford to pay it. Thirty-one-year old Denise Rebelato was arrested on February 5, 2014 after hailing a cab at New York's JFK Airport and getting a ride all the way to the Boston area….The cabby told Rebelato it would cost nearly $1,000 to get to Framingham from New York and she agreed to pay it when they left the airport. But after the roughly 200-mile journey…Rebelato couldn't get the money to pay for the trip--meaning the driver still hadn't gotten paid. He says he spent $75 on gas and $40 in tolls in addition to the $150 he spent to rent the cab for a shift….Rebelato was charged with larceny….
