An Ipswich support worker with a gambling problem who borrowed money from two people in his care has been warned he could be jailed.
Tanzir Talukdhar, 30, of Crescent Road, Ipswich pleaded guilty at Ipswich Crown Court, on what would have been the first day of his trial, to two offences of fraud by abuse of his position as a support worker and one offence of attempting to commit fraud.
The offences, which relate to him obtaining loans of £7,000 and £720 and attempting to obtain a loan of £650, took place between June 2014 and February last year.
Adjourning sentence for a pre-sentence report Recorder Richard Christie warned Talukdhar that he was likely to receive an immediate custodial sentence.
However, he said that as he had no previous convictions he wanted to obtain more information about him.
