Custody nurse showed no remorse after making indecent images of children

A police custody nurse who was convicted of possessing indecent images showed no remorse and is at high risk of repeating his actions, a nursing panel determined.

Jack Newey-Bradley, of West Midlands Police, was sentenced on September 14 2020, for three counts of making indecent images of children and one of distribution of indecent images of children, Birmingham Live reports.

The 29-year-old, of Clifton Street, Stourbridge, was handed a 16-month sentence, suspended for two years, at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Newey-Bradley worked in a police station custody suite based in Holford Drive in Perry Barr.

He was struck off the nursing register by the Nursing and Midwifery Council fitness to practise committee at a recent hearing after they found he has no remorse and has a "high risk of repetition of the conduct in this case".

The nurse was also placed on the sex offender's register for ten years during his sentencing from Judge Amjad Nawaz last year.

He was given a sexual harm prevention order for the same period of time and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £340.

Newey-Bradley was employed by Mountain Healthcare – an organisation that provides 'sexual assault referral services and police custodial healthcare'.

On its website, it details a commitment to forensic healthcare and a 24 hour, seven day a week service.

Newey-Bradley registered as an adult nurse on September 7 2012 and as a midwife on May 8 2015, the fitness to practise committee heard.

In November 2019 the Nursing and Midwifery Council received a referral from the director of Mountain Healthcare who advised that Newey-Bradley worked as a clinical lead, providing frontline healthcare to detainees in police custody by West Midlands Police and Thames Valley Police.

The director advised that Mr Newey-Bradley also practises as a midwife and that this was likely to be in the West Midlands area.

In October 2019 Mountain Healthcare's director was notified by West Midlands Police that Newey-Bradley had been arrested under the Obscene Publications Act.

The police subsequently confirmed that their investigation surrounded Newey-Bradley engaging in online conversations with another party, an undercover online police officer, discussing the sexual abuse of children.

As a result, a warrant was obtained to search the home address of Newey-Bradley. An initial search of the property identified indecent images of children on electrical devices.

The fitness to practise committee said: "The seriousness of Mr Newey-Bradley’s conduct which resulted in his conviction cannot be overstated.

"The public would be appalled to know that a nurse and midwife had engaged in such conduct and such conduct causes serious damage to the reputation of the nursing and midwifery professions."

The Nursing and Midwifery Council said Newey-Bradley has not provided any evidence of insight into the effect of his conduct on either the children who were the subject of the indecent images or the reputation of the nursing and midwifery professions.

The panel added: "He has not shown any remorse either. Rather, Mr Newey-Bradley seeks to blame others for his actions and focuses on how his conviction and these proceedings have affected him personally."

The committee also said there is a "high risk of repetition of the conduct in this case".

Newey-Bradley is no longer employed by Mountain Healthcare, it has been confirmed.

A striking-off order was directed by the committee, with an interim 18-month suspension order to cover any time should an appeal be heard.
