Criminologist Paul Wilson found guilty on child sex charges

A BRISBANE District Court jury has found Paul Wilson guilty of child molestation. 

The 75-year-old pleaded not guilty to accusations he indecently dealt with a girl under the age of 12 in his home in the 1970s, News Corp reports

It took a jury just three hours to reach a guilty verdict. 

Wilson's victim told the court during his trial they were naked in bed in his house when he tapped his penis, which he called Percy, against her vagina.

He also sexually assaulted the girl after playing a blindfolded game of hide and seek with her and another girl.
