A registered sex offender who rubbed his genitals against a 13-year-old girl on the 7 train and then minutes later against a young woman on a different 7 train has received the maximum two-year sentence for his crimes, according to the Queens District Attorney.

Paul Kingsley, 56, of Brooklyn, was found guilty in April of third- and second-degree sexual abuse, forcible touching, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment after a 2013 incident in which he harassed two women on the 7 train.

On Dec. 6, 2013, two undercover police officers observed Kingsley rubbing his genitals on the leg and thigh of a 13-year-old girl while aboard a Flushing-bound 7 train.

One of the officers spoke to the girl when she got off the 7 train at the Junction Blvd/Roosevelt Avenue station, while the other officer stayed on the train and followed Kingsley.

Kingsley got off the train and then jumped onto a 7 train going in the opposite direction. While aboard the Manhattan-bound train the officer observed Kingsley rubbing his penis on a 23-year-old female’s buttocks near the 74th Street/Roosevelt Avenue station.

Kingsley was wearing an ankle-mounted GPS tracking device on him at the time of the incident given his history as a sexually violent sex offender. Kingsley was convicted of abusing a 9-year-old girl in a library in North Carolina and another 9-year-old girl in a library in Syracuse, New York.

“[Kingsley] has proven himself to once again be a clear and present danger to females of all ages and to society in general,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement. “The sentence imposed by the Court today is more than warranted.”
