Group Home Worker Avoids Jail in Plea Deal for Lewd Abuse of the Disabled


SAN ANGELO— A San Angelo group home coordinator has taken a plea deal for charges of sexually assaulting two individuals who were under his care in a Daybreak facility.

Cory Gaylor, 40, has accepted a plea deal on four counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault. According to court documents, on June 1, 2022, a San Angelo Police Report was completed by an officer about an alleged sexual assault incident that occurred at a Daybreak group home in San Angelo.

In this report, the disabled victim said that Gaylor, who was a group home coordinator, had sexually assaulted him. A second man stepped forward, who was also a disabled person in Daybreak’s care, and said the Gaylor had also sexually assaulted him.

A licensed registered nurse with Daybreak who works in the home where the victims reside said she learned about the assaults from the victims and that they had happened during the summer.

"Disabled individual" in the affidavit means "a person older than 13 years of age who, by reason of age or physical or mental disease, defect, or injury is substantially unable to protect the person's self from harm or to provide food, shelter, or medical care for the person's self."

Gaylor was arrested on November 17, 2022, and has remained in the Tom Green County Jail on a $310,000 bond. In exchange for a guilty plea, Gaylor has been sentenced to 10 years deferred adjudication on Friday, February 23, 2024.

What a surprise ........................  deferred adjudication!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  What crime carries a prison sentence in Tom Green County ?????????????

The punk diddles the disabled that he is entrusted to care for..... A rope and a strong tree isn't punishment enough. I wish I could understand why the San Angelo DA would even consider these powder puff plea deals.
