A British caretaker, Phillip Carey, 48, was sentenced for raping a 99-year-old dementia woman. Carey was captured sexually molesting the victim after her family installed a camera in her room at a Lancashire care center. Her family claims, the camera was installed after the victim’s behavior strangely changed.

The victim was living in a Blackpool care home and stopped letting her family touch her and begged them not to leave her in the care center, warning “they will hurt me”. Out of care, her family then placed the camera in her room and spotted Carey walk in and rape her. Carey has been arrested, charged and was given a life sentence after the crime was reported. The victim's family is in shock and never imagined that the woman was "being abused and raped in her own room."

The victim’s family issued a statement which states: "Our elderly relative has gone through a horrific ordeal at the hands of someone we trusted to care for her. We had noticed her behavior had changed, she became withdrawn, wouldn't hug or kiss us and she didn't want us to go when we were leaving and on a couple of occasions, she said things that worried us, suggesting she would be punished. We were concerned that maybe someone was being unkind or too rough with her so we decided to install a hidden camera in her room so we could see what was happening."

Sophie Rozdolskyj, Senior Crown Prosecutor at CPS North West’s Rape and Serious Sexual Offence Unit said, “Carey abused his position of trust and targeted a vulnerable woman whom he should have been caring for, I am grateful to the victim’s family who have shown great strength throughout the Court proceedings. I hope today’s sentence provides them with some comfort, knowing Carey has been brought to justice for his actions.”

DI Chris Naidu, of Lancashire Constabulary, stated, "Carey worked in a position of trust which he abused in the most despicable way. We welcome the sentence which reflects the seriousness of his crime and we commend the victim and her family for their dignity and strength throughout the investigation and court case.”
