Jehovah's Witness abused girls after luring them with video games, court told
Married Paul Shields denies assaulting the youngsters as they played the games
1 FEB 2017
A Jehovah’s Witness sexually abused three young girls after luring them with video games, a court was told.
Paul Shields, 57, who was living in Guisborough at the time, allegedly sexually touched the youngsters, who at the time were too young to understand the seriousness of Shields’ actions, said prosecutor Andrew Espley.
The prosecution alleges that Shields, a married father and former plumber, repeatedly abused the girls when he was in his 30s.
Mr Espley said it was not until 2014 that two of the women, who were under-age at the time of the alleged offences, reported the matters to police.
