Stowmarket man admits sexually touching dementia patient at care home
A Stowmarket man has admitted to taking advantage of a dementia patient, in her 80s, at her care home.
Trevor Robinson, 68, admitted at Ipswich Magistrates' Court today (July 24) to sexually touching the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons.
The court was told that in March at the home, the woman's daughter noticed the curtains half drawn when she went into her mother's room and saw Robinson stood in front of her with his arms around her.
The prosecution told the court the woman was crying when her daughter entered the room, where she saw that Robinson, had his trousers down as he stood in front of her.
The court was told he had no previous convictions.
Robinson, of Hillside, has been sent to crown court for sentencing at a date yet to be fixed.
He was released on unconditional bail.
