‘Despicable’ care home worker jailed for abuse

-

An abusive care home worker who changed the clocks so that his client would go to bed early has been sentenced to eight months in jail.

Usman Arshad regularly slapped wheelchair-bound David Blinco and pushed a slipper into his mouth when he visited him at his home in Wexham, Berks, a court heard.

The 25-year-old was caught out last August after the victim’s brother, Peter, noticed the clocks in the house had been put forward by two hours and saw the mistreatme­nt on CCTV cameras installed after a burglary.

“In my view, this is an utterly despicable offence,” Judge Sarah Campbell told Reading Crown Court.
