Nurse in court over offences
A British nurse will stand trial today accused of a string of offences, including allegedly poisoning someone and grooming a girl.
Dale Bolinger, 57, formerly from Canterbury, Kent, was arrested by Kent Police in February following liaison with FBI officers in the United States.
Seven months later, he was charged with one count of administering poison to someone and two counts of possessing an indecent photograph of a child.
In addition, police also charged him with one count of attempting to meet a girl under 16 following sexual grooming and seven counts of publishing an obscene article.
The alleged offences are said to have taken place between July 2010 and February this year. Bolinger will stand trial at Canterbury Crown Court in front of Judge Adele Williams.
