NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The wheelchair-bound victim of convicted sex offender Reginald Gregory testified during a hearing Monday.

Gregory allegedly attacked the 60-year-old Madison woman after helping her carry groceries to her home from an MTA bus.

The victim said once they got to the doorway of her apartment, Gregory dumped her out of her wheelchair and began to choke her with both hands.

“I had the key to the door knob, and he took it out of my hand, pushed the door, pushed me in, slammed the door, and locked it, closed the curtains, and flipped me out of my wheelchair,” the victim told the court.

She said Gregory then carried her to her bedroom where he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

The judge also listened to testimony from the detective, Will Admundson with Metro police.

Admundson said Gregory initially tried to deny the whole thing.

“I could see he had a GPS monitoring device on his leg. I reminded him, ‘Sir, you’re being monitored by GPS. We know where you’ve been; we’re going to be able to tell where you’ve been, where you went,’” Det. Admundson testified.

“And even then he still denied it,” the detective added. “He said, ‘I never came in contact with the woman. I went to another house.’”

The case had now been bound over to a grand jury.

Gregory was arrested for aggravated rape in 2012, was convicted of attempted rape, and received a six-year prison sentence.

He was arrested for rape in 2003, was subsequently convicted of aggravated assault, and received a sentence of 10 years.
