Nurse Dale Bolinger accused of poisoning and child sex offences

A nurse has been charged with a number of child sex offences and trying to poison someone.

Dale Bolinger, 57, formerly of Canterbury in Kent, was accused of 11 offences in total relating to his alleged internet activity.

Kent Police were alerted by the FBI following an investigation in the US.

The alleged offences occurred between 2010 and 21 February this year. Mr Bolinger was bailed to face Canterbury magistrates on 8 November.

He was arrested on 21 February and has been charged with one count of attempting to administer poison to someone, two counts of possessing an indecent photograph of a child, one count of attempting to meet a girl under 16 following sexual grooming and seven counts of publishing an obscene article.

"The charges follow an extensive Kent Police investigation into alleged conspiracy offences in both the UK and the US," a police spokeswoman said.
