UK nursery worker in court to face 15 charges of child sex abuse

A British nursery worker has been charged with a number of child sex offences including the rape of a boy.

Jamie Chapman, 28, is due before Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Friday to face 15 charges after being arrested on Wednesday at his home in Tamar Drive, Smiths Wood.

Police said the charges include four counts of causing/inciting a boy aged 13 to 15 to engage in sexual activity, two counts of causing/inciting the sexual exploitation of a child aged 13 to 17, and one count of rape of a boy aged 13 to 15.

Chapman was further charged with taking an indecent photograph/pseudo photograph of a child, distributing an indecent photograph/pseudo photograph of a child and six counts of making an indecent photograph/pseudo photograph of a child, West Midlands Police said.

Officers said they are liaising with the nursery where Chapman is employed, but added: "At this stage of the inquiry there is no evidence to suggest any inappropriate contact between the worker and children at the nursery."
