New Charges expected in case against Ex-Baltimore cop accused of sexually abusing two children at Owings Mills daycare.
New abuse charges are expected to be filed against a former Baltimore city police officer already facing more than 20 counts of sexually abusing children, prosecutors said.
James Weems Jr., 57, of Randallstown, is expected to be charged in connection with the sexual abuse of two girls, ages 12 and 10, according to prosecutors.
The abuse occurred at Lil Kidz Kastle Daycare Center during the four years Weems worked there, prosecutors said. Baltimore County Assistant State’s Attorney Zarena Sita said during a bail review hearing on Wednesday that police are in the process of interviewing 93 children who attended the daycare.
"The state does believe this defendant is a public safety risk," Sita said. "There are going to be additional charges."
Sexual abuse allegations against Weems first surfaced after he was shot by his wife in July, telling investigators her husband was a “child molester.”
Weems joined the Baltimore Police Department in 1996 and retired in 2005.
