Andrew Brown from Glasgow crept into his victim’s room during the night
A key worker who sexually abused a vulnerable autistic man while working at a care home in Wembley has been jailed.
Andrew Brown, 53, from Glasgow, carried out his depraved acts on the 39-year-old victim after sneaking into his room in the middle of the night on two occasions in 2001.
The victim told his sister in May last year and she informed the police who launched an investigation.
Brown, who admitted two counts of indecent assault, was jailed for 30 months at Harrow Crown Court today.
