    A former MetroAccess driver has been found guilty of a second-degree sexual offense.

    Ezra Porter, 50, of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, was accused of inappropriate sexual contact with a female passenger in 2013. He allegedly stopped his MetroAccess vehicle in Bowie and sexually assaulted the victim before taking her home.

    "These are handicapped people who ride this," said MetroAccess passenger Edward Davenport. "I mean, who would do something like that?"

    A check by News4 revealed that Porter previously pleaded guilty in 2008 to driving with a suspended license and was put on probation.

    Porter's bond has been revoked. His sentencing is set for Sept. 5, and he is facing a maximum sentence of 20 years.
