A FORMER nursery worker from Smith's Wood today admitted a string of serious sexual offences involving children.
Jamie Chapman, 28, of Tamar Drive, pleaded guilty to the the rape of a teenage boy as well as 21 counts of causing or inciting sexual activity with children.
The defendant also pleaded guilty to nine counts of taking, making and distributing indecent photos of children. The offences are understood to have taken place between 2011 and 2016.
Police, who had arrested Chapman last year and seized computer equipment, had previously advised there was no evidence to suggest inappropriate contact between the worker and infants at the nursery where he had most recently been employed.
Judge Melbourne Inman QC, sitting at Birmingham Crown Court, today advised that a prison term would be "inevitable." He remanded Chapman in custody, with the case adjourned for sentencing on May 22.
