A pervert has been jailed after his wife walked in on him in bed with a 14 year-old girl and he tried to flee sheriff’s deputies in his sports car.
Paul Russell, 51, was sentenced to a total of 15 years on Monday for child sex abuse, and fleeing the scene after his spouse called 911, sparking a chase in Wichita Falls, Texas, that ended in a crash.
Russell’s wife came home from work one evening in May to find the pedophile having sex with the underage girl in their bed. She said Russell had called her before she left her job to ask her to go to the store, but that she had ignored his request, which she suspected was a delaying tactic.
The outraged wife confronted Russell about what she had seen, prompting him to flee their home in his white Chevy Camaro. She called 911 to tell police what had happened, and that her spouse had gone on the run.
Deputies from Wichita County Sheriff’s Office spotted Russell’s white sports car car driving past them shortly afterwards, with the pedophile ignoring their attempts to pull him over, the Times Record News reported.
That led to a 70mph car chase which saw Russell drive on the wrong side of the road, as oncoming traffic came towards him. The chase only ended 30 minutes later after a deputy rammed Russell’s car in a parking lot, bringing it to a standstill.
They found a .40 caliber pistol on the car’s passenger seat. A subsequent investigation found Russell had previously molested the girl on two previous occasions in November 2019 and January 2020.
He was handed sentences totaling 45 years for counts of child sex assault, indecency and arrest.
A judge ordered him to serve the sentences concurrently, meaning Russell will remain in jail for the duration of the lengthiest 15 year punishment.
