A MAN claiming he was molested as a schoolboy by “sex predator” Mark Watson has denied making up a story for money.
The alleged victim accepted he had told unconnected lies to police in the past – including a false rape allegation.
But he said his claims of weekly sex attacks at Watson’s home were all true.
And he told a Newcastle Crown Court jury he had not created a fantasy for compensation cash.
Watson’s barrister Robert Spragg said: “I am suggesting you are telling a pack of lies and your motivation is entirely financial.”
But the man, now in his 20s, said his motivation for finally making his complaint was very different.
He told the jury: “It is so he can never do this to anyone else.”
