Nursery abuser Alexander Mortimer ‘groomed parents’
A review into the case of a Lanarkshire nursery worker who abused boys has said more robust procedures are needed to detect offenders who seek to “groom parents” to get to their children.
Alexander Mortimer, 30, was jailed for more than five years in 2012 for filming himself abusing two young boys and taking indecent photographs.
The review said he tried to be friends with parents to get to their children.
It also said some nursery colleagues’ concerns about him were not acted upon.
Mortimer was originally jailed for eight years but this was reduced to five years and 11 months on appeal.
