The ruling on the mental health nurse who had sex with a teenage patient in his care will be had today.
The nurse initially submitted to the court he was innocent of the charges of rape and perversion of Justice but changed his plea on the second day of trial. He admitted at the Exeter Crown Court to have engaged in sexual activity with a child and also the charge of sexual activity by a carer with a person with a mental disorder.
The charges of rape and perverting the course of justice were dropped. But the judge remanded him in custody until the ruling on Wednesday.
Givemore Gezi, 40, was a senior nurse in Devon when he started treating the girl in 2017.
She was in foster care and had a history of depression, self-harm and had been diagnosed as being emotionally unstable with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
It was discovered during the hearing that Gezi had taken advantage of her vulnerability by grooming her and starting a relationship when she was 15. He also had sex with her when she turned 16.
She became pregnant from the encounters and he persuaded her to abort it. He then went on to confess his love for her and deceived her into thinking they were boyfriend and girlfriend.
Their relationship was discovered by his wife who suspected Gezi was cheating and found the girl’s number on his phone. She called and told her he was married with two children, she related to the court.
She tried to kill herself after arriving at school in tears and revealing what had been going on to a teacher.
Gezi, of Maidenway Road, Paignton, stopped being her carer when he was demoted in February.
But he carried on seeing her while police were investigating him and tried to stop her cooperating.
He was suspended by the Nursing and Midwifery Council at a hearing in London on May 30.
