A man repeatedly rapes the 99-year-old woman he was caring for in England
The facts have happened in Blackpool, an English town located in the county of Lancashire. The sex offender is Phillip Carey, a 48-year-old man who was taking care of the elderly woman.
It all started when the woman’s relatives began to see very strange behavior in her. She was afraid to be alone with her caregiver, facts that set off all the alarms.
A hidden camera in the room uncovered what had happened
For this very reason, they decided to put a hidden camera in the victim’s room to find out what was going on. The woman’s relatives could not believe their eyes: Phillip Carey was sexually assaulting the woman in her room.
They immediately decided to go to the police to report the incident, showing the security camera recordings as evidence.
The sexual aggressor was arrested and during the trial he admitted the facts, being sentenced to a minimum of 10 years in prison for sexual assault.
“Carey abused his position to rape a vulnerable woman, whom he should have taken care of. I am very grateful to the victim’s family, who have shown great strength throughout the court process. I hope the sentence gives them some comfort, knowing that Carey has been brought to justice for his actions,” explained lead prosecutor Sophie Rozdolskyj.
