One of many Queens’ subway creeps is heading for the slammer.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced on Wednesday that Paul Kingsley, 56, of Brooklyn, has been sentenced to two years in prison — the maximum sentence — for inappropriately touching a 13-year-old girl and a 23-year-old woman within minutes of each other on the same day on two separate 7 trains in December 2013.

Kingsley was designated a sexually violent offender and predicate sex offender in 2001 when he had to register for life with the New York State Sex Offender Registry following convictions in North Carolina and Syracuse, New York, for sexually abusing two 9-year-old girls, one in each state.

“A jury convicted the defendant in April of forcing himself on a young girl and a young woman as they rode the subway,” Brown said. “At the time of the two incidents, the defendant was wearing an ankle-mounted GPS tracking device that was being monitored by state authorities. As such, he has proven himself to once again be a clear and present danger to females of all ages and to society in general. The sentence imposed by the court today is more than warranted.”

In addition to being convicted of third- and second-degree sexual abuse, forcible touching, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment in April, Kingsley faces indefinite civil commitment for allegedly violating the terms of his Strict and Intensive Supervision and Treatment (SIST) parole. As part of his parole, Kingsley had to wear the GPS ankle tracking device, as well as not commit any additional sex-related crimes.

According to the trial testimony, Kingsley was seen by two undercover police officers rubbing his penis on the leg and thigh of a 13-year-old girl while riding a Flushing-bound 7 train on the afternoon of December 6, 2013.

While one of the officers spoke with the first victim on the subway platform, the second undercover officer continued to watch Kingsley as he got off the train at the next stop and boarded a Manhattan-bound 7 train. The officer then observed Kingsley rubbing his penis on the buttocks of a 23-year-old female victim.
