A west Wales pensioner, who molested women after giving them a bogus cancer diagnosis, has been jailed.
77-year-old Reginald Gill from Carmarthen was sentenced to eight years in prison after being found guilty of nine sex offences and two fraud charges at Swansea Crown Court.
Gill's 35-year-old wife Leila was also jailed for six months for her part in the sexually motivated scam.
The court heard last month how the couple ran a homeopathic products and treatments business in the west Wales village of Cwmduad.
A jury were told how Gill would claim female patients had cancer in order to carry out intrusive physical examinations on his naked victims.
– Honour Judge Keith Thomas, speaking during the sentencing of Gill
Women came to your clinic for help. They came open-minded, but you took advantage of them. You gave them the most frightening diagnoses you could. It was a gross abuse of their trust
The pensioner would then perform bizarre, un-scientific 'scans' using his hands, charging his victims 120 pounds for each session.
Gill claimed he had 'cured' his two victims, but neither of them actually had cancer.
