Former Metro Access driver guilty of sexual assault

BOWIE, Md. (WUSA9) -- A former Metro Access driver accused of sexually assaulting a passenger in April 2013 was found guilty on Friday.

Ezra Porter faces a maximum sentence of 20 years for the incident. He was found guilty of a 2nd degree sex offense.

On April 19, Porter was driving a female passenger home from her job when he pulled over and threatened to harm her if she didn't take off her pants, according to officials. Fearing for her life, the victim removed her pants and Porter sexually assaulted her.

Porter drove the woman home and reported the assault to police.

During the trial, the state was able to corroborate the victim's story by using the GPS on the Metro Access vehicle. It showed the deviation from the normal route and that the vehicle was stopped for the approximately four minutes the victim claimed.

Sentencing is set for September 5, 2014.
