A CARETAKER who sexually assaulted a vulnerable male with autism was jailed for 30 months.
Andrew Brown, 53, of Buccleugh Street, Glasgow, was sentenced at Harrow Crown Court on Friday last week after admitted indecent assault.
He was also subject to a sexual offender’s prevention order for five years.
The court heard the sexual assaults were carried out in 2001 when Brown worked at a care home in Wembley for vulnerable adults with autism.
In May 2012 the male victim, while out on a day trip, told his sister what had happened.
An investigation was then launched by the Met Police’s Sapphire command.
The victim told officers he was sexually assaulted by Brown on two occasions in 2001 while living at the home.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Jordan McGowan, from Sapphire, said: “Brown was in a position of trust as a key worker at the home.
“He abused this trusted position that not only the care home placed in him but also the victim and his family.
“This case helps set the standard that vulnerable adult victims are taken seriously and their case investigated with the same determination and tenacity as any other.”
