A Cornish care worker who sexually abused a woman he knew had mental health problems faces jail.

Michael Callon from Camborne pleaded guilty just minutes before the start of his trial in Truro.

Callon, aged 40, of Pendarves View, Camborne, and formerly of Marazion, pleaded guilty to two of the six charges he faced only minutes before his trial was due to begin.

Defence counsel Sean Brunton said that Callon was a man of previous good character who had his own difficulties from medical and psychiatric points of view and asked that sentence should be adjourned to enable reports to be prepared.

Advised by prosecutor Llewellyn Sellick that the victim would be greatly relieved to learn that she would not have to give evidence before a jury, judge David Ticehurst commented that although the plea had come on the day of trial Callon should receive some discount on his sentence.

"All options will remain open to the sentencing Judge, including custody which will be the almost inevitable outcome," he declared.

Callon will also be sentenced for four similar allegations involving a second woman suffering from a mental disorder which he admitted when he appeared before the court last July.
