A man with no arms or legs has been convicted of sexually assaulting a six-year-old girl at her birthday party.
The severely disabled man, named only as Tomy S, was invited to the party by the little girl’s mother.
The mother had met the 35-year-old through a home for the disabled where she worked as a carer.
He was arrested after the girl, named ‘Paula’, told her mother he had sexually assaulted her during the party at their home in Chemnitz, east Germany.
A court heard how Tomy S molested the child after pretending to be a vet while reading a story to her and her friends in her bedroom.
Tomy S then told the other children to leave the room so he could ‘examine’ the birthday girl.
Paula told the court via video link; ‘Tomy was pretending to be a vet. We were playing a game of dares, and he was allowed to examine me because he was the vet and he put his head on my stomach.
‘Later he told the other children to leave the room and I had to take my trousers off and lay on the bed.’
Tomy is said to have then used his head to interfere with her sexually.
Tomy S denied all accusations claiming that the little girl had made the story up and no such game had taken place.
‘What she is saying is just not correct. I spent the whole time reading stories to the children.’
The court found Tomy S guilty of child sexual abuse.
Giving him an 11 month suspended sentence, Judge Michael Mularczyk said: ‘You are just trying to protect yourself. We are convinced of your guilt.’
Tomy S was also banned from any future contact with the family.
