Tablelands police charge former Jehovah’s Witness with offences against children

AN ELDERLY Tablelands man and former Jehovah’s Witness member will appear in court this month amid allegations he molested three young girls from the church more than 25 years ago.

Detectives from the Tablelands Child Protection and Investigation Unit charged the 74-year-old, who cannot be identified to protect the alleged victims, on Thursday after an investigation which spanned almost a year.
