PRISON WARNING: Care worker could face prison time after admitting to slapping vulnerable St Albans teen

 Published on: 12th November 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

A care worker was warned by a judge today (Thursday, November 12) that she could go to prison after she admitted slapping a vulnerable St Albans teenager she was supposed to be looking after.

Michelle Cave, 48, of High Street, London Colney, has pleaded guilty to the ill treatment and wilful neglect of the 15-year-old girl between November 25 and November 27 last year (2019).

The case was not opened at St Albans Crown Court by prosecutor Martin Mulgrew.

Defence barrister Christopher Harding asked for the case to be adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

Judge Caroline Wigin bailed Cave, who will be sentenced on December 17.

The judge said: “I am making no promises with regard to the pre-sentence report. The case clearly crosses the custody threshold.”
