DOVER-FOXCROFT — A former barber is going to prison for 10 years for sexually abusing two young girls he had hired to clean his barbershop in a small Maine town.

Donald Denbow of Shirley was sentenced Monday in Piscataquis County Superior Court. The 68-year-old Denbow pleaded no contest in November to 13 counts of gross sexual assault and one count of sexual abuse of a minor on charges of having sex with the girls in his shop in Dover-Foxcroft.

According to the Bangor Daily News, Denbow expressed remorse and told the judge he was accepting responsibility for his “sins.”

When police arrested Denbow in 2009, they discovered he wasn’t listed on the state’s sex offender registry, as required by law for a 1982 conviction of gross sexual assault involving his own daughter.
