2:27pm 2nd September 2013
A York carer's been sentenced to a year behind bars after stealing £4,900 from an 87 year old woman.
Felix James Bradley of Thoresby Road used the pensioner's bank card to take her money out of cash machines.
Bradley also has to pay his victim a £100 and has been given a restraining order for three years after his release.
The investigating officer, PC Ray Milligan of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This man was placed in a position of trust to take care of the most vulnerable people in society and he went on to blatantly abuse that trust out of pure greed and selfishness.
“I would like to thank the victim’s daughter and the care providers for their help and assistance during the investigation which helped provide the evidence needed to bring Bradley to justice.
“I hope this case sends a clear message to anyone else who believes they can take advantage of vulnerable people, it will not be tolerated in a civilised society. We will catch you and do everything in our power to ensure you are brought to justice and feel the full force of the law.”
