Dale Bolinger, 57, charged with 11 counts, including attempting to administer poison to someone.
A British nurse whose name emerged as part of an international investigation into cannibalism has been charged with sex offenses and attempting to poison someone.
Dale Bolinger, 57, formerly from Canterbury in Kent, is charged with 11 counts in connection with activity over the internet between him and several people.
Kent police said an investigation was initiated earlier this year as a result of liaison with officers from the FBI in America, investigating offenses of conspiracy to kidnap and murder by Gilberto Valle, 28, a former New York police officer.
Bolinger was arrested on 21 February on suspicion of committing conspiracy offenses and has been on police bail.
He was charged at Canterbury police station 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 alleged offenses occurred between 2010 and 21 February this year.
“The charges follow an extensive Kent police investigation into alleged conspiracy offenses in both the UK and the USA,” a spokeswoman said.
Bolinger has been bailed to appear at Canterbury magistrates court on 8 November.
The court in the US heard that Valle had discussed cannibalism with a British man on an obscene fetish website.
Bolinger said after he was arrested that he had written “stupid things” online because it was funny and his involvement was “fantasy”.
