28-year-old used Facebook to blackmail, rape teenage boys
The NSPCC has condemned the 'disgusting' child sex abuse carried out by former teaching assistantJamie Chapman.
Chapman, form Solihull, has been jailed for 16 years after pleading guilty to 31 child sexual offences relating to 18 victims.
Jamie Chapman, 28, created "fake and false" Facebook personas of teenage girls to get vulnerable boys to send him naked images of themselves.
Having duped 18 victims in all, he then urged them to engage in sex acts.
When the victims refused, he would then threaten to blackmail the boys by sending their photos to school friends and family, Birmingham Crown Court was told
Chapman, 28, Chapman, of Tamar Drive, Solihull, admitted raping a child and a further 21 offences of causing or inciting sexual activity with children, and nine counts of taking, making and distributing indecent photos of children.
Over a five-year period Chapman pursued a disgusting and widespread campaign of child sexual abuse.
He has rightly been placed behind bars where he poses no further threat to children.
His victims will now need time and expertise to help them overcome their traumatic ordeals.
This shocking case highlights how important it is that children can recognise grooming behaviour.
Parents have a vital part to play and should speak to their children about the risks they could face online.
