A Belleville judge has sentenced an 84-year-old Quinte West man to four years in prison after he molested three pre-teen sisters – and claimed they instigated the situation.

Earl William (Bill) Redquest pleaded guilty in May to two counts of sexual interference. Six related charges were withdrawn.

Hastings County Crown attorney Lee Burgess said the short, clean-shaven man with short grey hair had “groomed” the girls in past visits to their family’s property by showing them toys.
