A Cornish care worker has been jailed for sexually abusing vulnerable women he knew had mental health problems.

Truro Crown Court heard how Michael Callon, who now lives in Camborne, had two inappropriate relationships.

The 41 year old has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Sentencing him, Judge David Ticehurst told Callon: "You abused the trust these women had placed in you. Rather than provide the care and support they needed, you exploited their frailties for your own gratification.

"Although at times it may have been consensual, it was not a relationship of equals which is why the law is there to protect them."

Mr Callon's defence said he was a man of previous good character, who admitted the way he breached his moral responsibilities was criminally wrong."

Police Safeguarding Supervisor, Detective Sergeant Andy Buckley, said: "Police and our partner agencies have collaborated in a detailed and thorough investigation surrounding these crimes and we feel that justice has been served today.

"The victims were subjected to a prolonged and traumatic period of abuse and there will be ongoing support for them to deal with the abuses of trust they have endured. Hopefully this will help bring some closure to their ordeals.

"Safeguarding vulnerable people remains a key policing priority both nationally and in Devon and Cornwall. Hopefully decisions such as this will give vulnerable people the confidence to come forward and report incidents of concern especially that of professional abuse."
