Re: A residential care worker who abused a man with Down's syndrome - tying his chair to a table to stop him getting up and banging a spoon on a pot lid to keep him awake - has been sent to jail.<br />
Marie Baltazar worked at the St James' home in Uplands, Swansea, when she subjected the man in his 50s to the ill-treatment.<br />
Her activities came to light after a fellow employee reported her activities to the police, an act of public spiritedness commended by a judge.<br />
Baltazar, aged 36, of Alban Road in Llanelli, had previously pleaded guilty to the ill-treatment of a person lacking mental capacity when she appeared in the dock at Swansea Crown Court for sentencing.<br />
Robin Rouch, for the prosecution, told the court St James' was a residential care home for people with learning difficulties, and at the time of the offending in 2015 had around eight or nine residents.<br />
Baltazar worked as a carer at the home, and was married to its manager, Ashley Bowen.
