Redwood City man imprisoned for molesting girl
January 07, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Paul Hewitt

A Redwood City man convicted of molesting his long-term, live-in girlfriend’s 10-year-old daughter while her mother showered was sentenced yesterday to six years in prison and must register for life as a sex offender.

Jurors convicted Paul Anthony Hewitt, 44, in April of five counts of felony molestation and acquitted him on one other count.

Hewitt abused the girl in May 2008 but police were not notified for two more years, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors say on that particular day, the family arrived home from a christening and Hewitt carried the sleeping girl upstairs to her bed while the mother showered. He reportedly touched the girl inappropriately several times while the girl feigned sleep in hopes of it stopping. The girl allegedly told her mother the next day and Hewitt denied any wrongdoing. The family remained together about a year and after that the girl told a teacher who contacted police.

Hewitt has credit of 404 days against this sentence earned while in custody without bail since his conviction, During trial, he had been free on $250,000 bail.
