Police: Contract Nurse Had Inappropriate Contact With Female Inmate
Police in Fairfax have arrested and charged a former contract nurse from Fairfax County Jail with sexual battery. According to the authorities, 39-year-old Christopher Chimera had inappropriate sexual contact with a female inmate in late 2017. Chimera was arrested on November 16 for the incident which took place in December 2017, when he was working as a licensed practical nurse contractor with a company called Maxim Healthcare Services, which had a contract with the county.
The alleged victim went to police on October 18 to report the incident, which led to an investigation by the department’s Major Crimes Bureau. At the time of his arrest, Chimera was working as a nurse for the Fairfax County Community Services Board. However, he has since been terminated from that position.
Chimera is free on a $2,000 bond and has a court date scheduled for January 29, 2019. Detectives have asked anyone with information and other victims to contact them at 703-246-7800.
