Second victim comes forward, says Bullitt County man raped her

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A second victim has come forward saying a Bullitt County man also raped her.  The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office says she was a juvenile at the time, about five years ago.

U.S. Marshals arrested 55-year-old Gregory Halbauer this week.  He's accused of repeatedly raping a close family member in the early '90s.  The first victim says she was 11 when the rapes started and is now an adult.

Halbauer is being held at the Bullitt County Detention Center on a $200,000 cash bond.

Bullitt County Sheriff's detectives say Halbauer is a close family member.  The alleged victim says she and her psychiatrist recently confronted Halbauer and that, surprisingly, he confessed to the crime.

The alleged victim had already said she hoped coming forward would encourage others to do the same.
