A former Doncaster publican has been found guilty of the sexual abuse of two girls.

A jury took two hours to return unanimous verdicts against Stephen Noy, aged 57, of Bernard Road, Edlington today.

Noy had denied six charges of indecent assault and two counts of sex with a girl under 16.

Two victims gave evidence about incidents which took place in the 1980s.

Both made complaints several years ago but were deterred from pressing on with their claims.

The jury heard Noy was given a police caution several years ago for the indecent assault of a girl under 14.

Prosecutor Robert Underwood, who had called Noy a ‘predatory paedophile’, said there were ‘similarities’ between the accounts of the two women and that supported their allegations.

Kevin Jones, defending, said witnesses claimed Noy had a ‘distinguishing feature’ on his penis. Police called in a nurse who found no mark.

“That was something Mr Noy said you could check, ‘feel free’ and they did. He is right, there is no mark,” said Mr Jones.

Judge Rosalind Coe refused him bail and he is set to be sentenced tomorrow.
