Home healthcare manager accused of sexual assault

Seminole County deputies arrested the manager of a home healthcare service, based out of Lake Mary.

Authorities say Gregory Porras, 42, was supposed tobe assisting a blind woman, but instead, he took advantage of her.

"This is someone particularly vunerable. She was home alone at the time, and this suspect was absolutely a predator,"  said Seminole County Sheriff's Office spokesman Bob Kealing. "He comes to her house, starts having inappropriate context in conversations and it leads to a sexual assault of this victim."

According to investigators, Porras was both sales manager and caregiver representative at BrightStar Care in Lake Mary.

In the arrest report, deputies say Porras told deputies that he was blackmailed into having sex with the woman -- something investigators didn't believe.

"He gave several stories, but it did not match up with the subsequent investigations and forensic evidence that we were able to gather at the scene."

BrightStar Care says they fired Porras, and investigators tell us they are looking through two months of records at the company, to see if there are any other victims.

"We're concerned that this brazen level of activity that he showed, could be an indication that he's comfortable doing this and he's done it before," Kealing added.

Authorities recommend clients have another person with them when a home healthcare representative comes to visit.  Anyone who's been victimize should call the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
