Wolverhampton paedophile with secret bank accounts finally rumbled by police while in TSB queue

A twisted paedophile had a trio of secret bank accounts he hid from police, a court has heard.

Paul Miller, from the West Midlands but now living in Wales, was required to declare any accounts he had to the cops

That was under the terms of his release following being convicted of serious sexual offending against young girls.

A court has heard the 61-year-old Black Country man opened three TSB accounts.

He was accused of repeatedly lied to police about their existence, only being busted when an off-duty offender manager saw him in a queue at a bank and raised the alarm.

The court heard Miller believes the restrictions he has to abide by because he’s a registered sex offender are “unfair” and the police are persecuting him.

In 2009 Miller was sentenced to five years in prison at Wolverhampton Crown Court for historical sexual offences involving two young girls, one aged just five.

He was released in 2012 and subsequently moved to Aberystwyth.

An off-duty offender manager saw Miller waiting in a queue at the TSB bank in Aberystwyth and raised the alarm.

Police subsequently discovered he had three accounts with the bank.

When interviewed he told officers he had had the accounts since 2017.

Paul David Miller, of Bow Street, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, had previously pleaded guilty to breaching notification requirements when he appeared in the dock for sentencing.

Miller was sentenced to six months in prison.

He will serve half that period in custody before being released on licence to serve the remainder in the community.
