Former Jehovah’s Witness jailed for inappropriately touching teenage girls

A 56-year-old former Jehovah’s Witness will spend two months in jail with the rest of the sentence suspended, and undergo community service, over historical offences relating to the inappropriate touching of two girls.

The ACT Magistrates Court heard the man was at the house of fellow Jehovah’s Witnesses in 2004 when the then-43-year-old asked the couple’s 14-year-old daughter to log on to the computer for him.
