Samantha Pascoe, formerly employed by Neath Port Talbot Council in Neath's Hillside Secure Unit, is accused of breaching the Code of Practice for Social Care Workers by allegedly behaving inappropriately towards a 16-year-old in her care.No, not another in the ongoing series of ‘Nuts who fall in lust with nuts’, for a change.
The opening day of the hearing, held at Swansea's Village Hotel, saw Mrs Pascoe face three charges relating to two separate dates, when it is alleged she shouted at A in a threatening and aggressive manner, used inappropriate language and locked him in a cupboard.Ooooh, ‘inappropriate language’!
The first incident took place on or about February 13, 2010, when A was banging on the office window as the unit's staff changed shifts. Appearing as a witness fellow unit worker Deborah Morgan said of Mrs Pascoe: "Out of the blue she jumped up, opened the door and screamed at A, 'If you do that again I will cut your F****** legs off.' I was very shocked at Sam's actions. I had never heard anyone ever talk to a young person in the unit like that before."Perhaps that’s the reason the little s**ts think they can do as they please without consequence?
