A 33-year-old Worcester man who is facing charges of failing to register as a sex offender in Shrewsbury, where he worked, has issued a statement saying he is not a pedophile.
"While it is true that I am a classified sex-offender and am required to register, I am not a pedophile. I have never in my life nor would I ever harm a child," Paul H. Ferreira said in the statement, the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester reported today.
Ferreira worked at Magic World, delivering, monitoring and maintaining rides at children's parties, the newspaper reported.
