Man sentenced to seven months jail after molesting elderly woman in her home

A 43-year-old man who works as a care worker was sentenced to seven months in jail after he pleaded guilty to an attempted violent, indecent assault on an elderly woman who was under his care.

Reagan Ugat Tion, 43, from the Philippines, who was supposed to be taking care of the woman, was caught molesting her on a CCTV camera at her home in Zebbug. At first he did not admit to the charges, but he later changed his plea and confessed.

The Court, presided over by Magistrate Aaron Bugeja, heard how the woman found the carer through an agency. It also heard how the carer had just met the woman an hour before he committed the act.

The Prosecution was led by Inspector Kylie Borg.
