A 36-year-old man who sexually molested a young girl in Shipley in the 1990s will be sentenced by a judge next month.

The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC, told Paul Morrow that he did not know what sentence he would receive and he needed a comprehensive pre-sentence report from the probation service. He was released on bail until his sentence hearing on May 6.

Morrow, of Longroyd Crescent, Huddersfield, had been on trial at Bradford Crown Court accused of sex offences committed in Shipley against two young girls, who cannot be identified for legal reasons.

The jury heard that he had already admitted sexual assault charges relating to one of the girls, but denied any further offending against her and two allegations relating to a second complainant.

At the end of his trial yesterday the jury convicted Morrow on two further charges of indecent assault in respect of the girl he admitted molesting.

But he was cleared of 11 further charges of indecent assault and one of attempted rape in relation to that complainant.

The jury also found Morrow not guilty of the two allegations of indecent assault made by the second complainant.

At the conclusion of yesterday's hearing Judge Thomas confirmed that Morrow would now have to register as a sex offender with the police.
