A PERVERT has been ordered to take part in a programme to tackle his ‘deviant attitude’ after he was caught on camera indulging in sex acts with someone with a mental disorder.
Alan Davies knew his victim’s condition - because he had taken him to a centre for people with learning disabilities while working as a taxi driver.
Davies, 60, of Styles Close, Leamington, pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to a charge of sexual activity with a person with a mental disorder.
He was given a community sentence with three years supervision, a three-year sex offender treatment programme, and was ordered to register as a sex offender for five years.
Prosecutor Jennifer Josephs said the victim was in his mid-40s, and although he lived alone, he was described as being ‘extremely vulnerable’ and needing a great deal of care support.
He was in the lowest one per cent of the population in terms of intellectual ability, had ‘significant’ mental impairment and learning difficulties, and had an inability to understand sexual relationships.
Because of earlier allegations, a CCTV camera and an alarm were installed at his home in 2010.
In October that year he activated the alarm, and when the police arrived they found him distressed and crying, saying: “The man’s been round again and touched my body and hurt me.”
The police checked the CCTV recording which showed the victim being undressed and Davies sexually abusing him.
Davies, who had been wearing a distinctive red top, was arrested after one of the man’s neighbours told the police about him having been there on another occasion.
Miss Josephs said in a pre-sentence report Davies claimed the other man had initiated the activity – but she pointed out that was not supported by the CCTV recording.
Davies said he knew the man because he had previously taken him to a centre for people with learning difficulties while working as a taxi driver.
He claimed he had only been to the man’s home twice, but neither of those was the occasion recorded by the CCTV camera, and he denied being the person on that recording.
Judge Marten Coates told Davies: “I don’t believe that you or the community would be helped by me sending you to prison immediately. It would be far more sensible if I give you help so other members of the community could be protected from this behaviour in the future."
