Care worker guilty of sex attacks on colleagues

A care worker has been found guilty of a string of sex offences against colleagues, including rape.

Richard Forsyth, aged 32, was convicted by a jury of rape, attempted rape, assault by penetration and sexual assault after a two-week trial at Shrewsbury Crown Court.

The offences took place when Forsyth worked caring for people in their own homes.

During the trial, prosecutor Adrian Amer told the jury that Forsyth's female colleagues "all dreaded having to do shifts with him" and worried about what would happen if they reported him."

Forsyth, of Brookfield Close, Weston Rhyn, was remanded in custody and is expected to be sentenced on Friday, September 10.
