A man, 43, has been found guilty of molesting a young girl during a party at a Jersey pub last year.

Joao Gomes Drumond appeared before the island’s Magistrate’s Court on Friday 11 August 2023 facing a child sex offence charge.

The court heard how Drumond inappropriately touched his victim, who was no older than 12, three times during a party at a pub in St Helier on Saturday 24 September 2022.

Jersey Police say the girl told her mother after the incident and Drumond was arrested the following day.
