BBC (UK), Wednesday, November 7, 2018

A Jehovah's Witness elder has been jailed for five years for sexually assaulting a "terrified" schoolgirl.

Brian Jenkins, who is now 75, groped the girl when she was aged between 12 and 14, while she was part of his congregation in Brecon, Powys.

Jenkins, from Redditch, Worcestershire, was found guilty of six charges of indecent assault dating back to the 1970s at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court.

Sentencing him, the judge said Jenkins had displayed "breathtaking arrogance".

The court heard Jenkins was jailed for 21 months at Worcester Crown Court in 1991 for a series of similar sex offences.

It took the jury just an hour to deliver unanimous guilty verdicts on each charge.

Sentencing Jenkins, Judge Daniel Williams told him that even though more than 40 years had passed, his victim "lives with the consequences of your actions every day of her life".

He was told he must register as a sex offender for life.

Good news for everyone. Good also to see "Caesar" doing his job. We pay him enough!

So, he was mid 20s when he committed this crime,  and seems to have been convicted for something else when he was 47. Was he a witness through all that? Is he still one? The paper says he is an elder member"? What's that mean?
