Despicable thief Michael Daley left a pensioner feeling “violated” after sneaking into her home and stealing from her in a disgraceful abuse of trust.

Daley took advantage of the fact he had family members living at the same assisted living complex as the victim.

The victim, who lives with her husband, was left feeling vulnerable and insecure and has since installed a security camera for peace of mind.

Now Daley, 22, who admitted burglary, has been given a suspended prison sentence at Newcastle Crown Court.

Recorder Jonathan Sandiford told him: “This was a sneak-in burglary at a home that, as you well knew, was assisted living for older people, designed to allow them to live independently as far as possible and to give them a degree of security.
