Psychic 'conned women into performing sex acts'

Antony Stone in London

A psychic accused of conning vulnerable women into stripping off for raunchy spiritualist sessions never told them to "get naked", a jury heard yesterday.

Karl Lang (49) manipulated his alleged victims into performing sex acts on themselves, Newport Crown Court heard.

Mr Lang was sought out by the women, both in their 20s, in the belief that he could help them contact dead relatives.

Mr Lang, of Newport, south Wales, denies 12 counts of causing women to engage in sexual activity without consent. Nigel Fryer, defending, reminded the jury of what Mr Lang previously said: "I did not invite any of these women to get naked."

His comments came as the jury prepared to retire to deliberate on verdicts for the 12 counts.
