Elder Abuse: Carer Escapes Jail Term (Scotland)

Care worker escapes jail for Red Rum taunt
18 December, 2008

A CARE assistant who forced a set of false teeth into a stroke victim's mouth and likened him to the champion racehorse Red Rum was ordered to carry out community service by a sheriff this week.

Sheriff Alasdair MacFadyen heard the incidents were witnessed by members of staff and were reported to management, who contacted the police.

The solicitor said Cameron, who was a first offender and was now working as a cleaner, had been a care assistant for 14 years and would never work in the care sector again.

As a punishment and a deterrent he ordered her to carry out 100 hours of community service. He said this would be seen as a direct alternative to custody.
