A TWISTED Crosshouse nurse who was jailed for posing as a male doctor to con women into sending naked pictures, has been struck off – after blaming one of her victims for the sick ploy.

Adele Rennie carried out a campaign of harassment against 10 different women, pretending to be a number of different men to carry out a series of sick sex offences.

The 27-year-old even used a voice changing app to disguise her feminine voice in order to dupe the innocent women who believed her to be a handsome, successful doctor.

At a hearing with the Nursing and Midwifery Council last week, Rennie said she carried out her bizarre plan after one victim “spurred her on”.

In a letter written from her prison cell in September, Rennie said: “Not only do I regret my actions and feel it was an act of naivety and stupidity, that was spurred on by one of the victims, I am also disappointed that I failed the nursing profession”

But NMC chiefs said Rennie was “solely responsible for the matters that had led to her conviction and that her stating that she was ‘spurred on’ by one of her victims was a failure to acknowledge and take sole responsibility for her offences which gave rise to her conviction.

They added: “The panel considered that this letter demonstrated an ongoing lack of insight into the potentially, deeply damaging effects of her behaviour on her victims.”

The NMC Panel said Rennie’s crimes were so bad that “the victims endured a significant amount of emotional trauma and embarrassment, which may take some time for them to recover and concluded there was a danger of her re-offending.

They said allowing Rennie to continue as a nurse would “undermine the profession”

And they continued: “Her convictions were so serious, that to allow Miss Rennie to continue practising would undermine public confidence in the profession and in the NMC as a regulatory body.”

The panel decided a striking off order was “necessary on the grounds of public protection”.

Health chiefs also said the former nurse’s sick crimes were “fundamentally incompatible with Miss Rennie remaining on the register”, and struck her off.

They added: “Patients and their families must be able to trust nurses with their lives and the lives of their loved ones.

“To justify that trust, nurses must be honest and open and act with integrity.”

Rennie was jailed for 22 months in December 2017 but walked free in October 2018 after serving just 10 months of her sentence.

She admitted 18 separate offences – including 10 counts of stalking – between 2012 and 2017 after targeting women through dating sites and social media using three male aliases.

Kilmarnock Sheriff Court was told that the woman had used a list of false names and aliases to snare innocent women online who thought they were talking to a handsome, successful doctor.

Rennie, of Kilmarnock, carried out her twisted campaign over four years.
