A Queensland criminologist has given testimony in court, denying allegations he played sex games with young girls at his Brisbane home in the 1970s.
Paul Richard Wilson, 75, opted to take to the stand in the Brisbane District Court on Friday.
Wilson faces four counts of indecent treatment of one girl under the age of 12.
He has pleaded not guilty.
The prosecution alleged on one occasion Wilson lured the girl into his bedroom and asked her to stroke a cat that he was holding in front of his naked genitals.
When questioned about this by prosecutor Philip McCarthy, Wilson responded: “I deny that utterly, utterly.”
It has been also alleged Wilson played a blindfolded game of hide and seek with the same girl, as well as another girl, before allegedly sexually assaulting her.
“I never played hide and seek with any children,” Wilson told the court.
“That is absolute fantasy, it never occurred.”
When asked by defence barrister Peter Davis QC if he had ever committed a sexual act against either girl, Wilson said: “No, I did not.”
The trial resumes on Tuesday.
