PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A former Cornwall mental health worker had an ongoing sexual relationship with one of his vulnerable clients. Angus Fruin, now 42, regularly attended the victim’s flat and even had a key in what was described as a huge breach of trust. Fruin, from Bude, appeared at Truro Crown Court for sentence having pleaded guilty to two charges of sexual activity with a person with a mental disorder by a care worker. The offences took place around a decade ago, with the victim telling police what happened some time later. However, in what Judge Robert Linford described as “an utterly scandalous delay”, he was only charged five and a half years later. The relationship continued for some time even after Fruin left his job.

I trusted them to support me and they seemed a caring and supportive team. “I feel stupid for not realising he was taking advantage and I’ve blamed myself for years. Because of the shame I started drinking more and he knew of my drink problem. I was drinking so much I couldn’t stop being sick and when I stopped drinking I suffered fits and a cardiac arrest that left me in A&E in a coma for 12 days.

He (Fruin) didn’t like that he didn’t have control of me. It’s been tough on my family and has taken a long time to bring down the high walls I put up to protect myself from abusers. I sleep walked, was constantly anxious and in panic mode day and night. I suffered bouts of depression and freaked out when a man showed an interest in me. “The case has gone on so long. The last six years have been ruled by fear. I want this to be over so I can begin to repair the damage.

. He took away my dignity, freedom and ability to trust others.” Speaking on behalf of Fruin, who has no previous convictions, Piers Norsworthy said that the CPS delays could have been avoided and that the case has hung over Fruin as well as the victim. He said: “His mother is 86 and has been diagnosed with dementia. He is her sole carer and does the cooking, cleaning and shopping. “Prior to him entering guilty pleas he put her into a care home in case he was remanded. If he retains his liberty she’ll be able to return to the family home.” Mr Norsworthy pointed out that were it not for Fruin’s job, no criminal offence would have been committed. References described Fruin as a gentleman and a kind man, and the court heard how sorry he is for the distress caused by his actions. Sentencing Fruin, Judge Linford said: “The complainant was a service user and she’d been diagnosed with a number of conditions. She was assisted by a support team and you were part of that support team. “You had a duty to look after her, care for her and not take advantage of her obvious vulnerability but you started a sexual relationship together. You visited her home and had a key to the property. There were a number of occasions when full sexual intercourse took place. This was a serious breach of trust against a victim who had a right to feel safe.” Judge Linford then describes the delays with the investigation and prosecution of the case as “utterly scandalous”, saying that the wait has had a huge effect on both defendant and complainant. Judge Linford then noted Fruin’s significant mitigation, primarily his own issues, his remorse, the glowing character references, his caring responsibilities for his mother and his lack of previous convictions. Fruin was given a two-year prison sentence, suspended for two years. He must complete a rehabilitation activity requirement and 180 hours of unpaid work. As a result of the convictions Fruin must sign the sex offenders’ register.
