Christina Sethi, 25, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for sexually assaulting three of her elderly patients at a care facility.

Sethi targeted people suffering from dementia and filmed it for her boyfriend. She was initially charged with using a vibrator on one female victim and fondling another one, NY Daily News reported.  She later pleaded guilt to five counts of sexual assault involving two female victims and one male victim. One of them has since died. 

Sethi’s crimes were discovered when a man who bought her old computer discovered the videos, which she had attempted to delete.

"What are you doing to me?” one victim asked in a seven-and-a-half minute clip.

"Sethi committed crimes that most ordinary people could never comprehend. This depraved individual carried out shocking acts of abuse and grossly abused her position at the care home,” Detective Inspector Ed Wright, from the Force Public Protection Unit, told Torquay Herald Express. "She committed these atrocious acts on the very people she had been trusted to care for and targeted their vulnerabilities in order to satisfy her own sexual deviance.”

Wright said he hoped the sentence would bring closure to the victims and their families. "I hope they can take some small comfort in the fact that, by acting swiftly, police were able to ensure Sethi could not commit further crimes and we were able to safeguard those individuals who are most vulnerable in our society,” he said.
