After a month long investigation, a former Boy Scout troop leader and Oakdale business owner was arrested by Stanislaus County Sheriff’s detectives on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 5 for engaging in sexual acts with a minor and showing the minor pornography.

Paul Birmingham, 55, of Oakdale, and owner of Print-Rite Printing on Hi Tech Parkway, was suspected in having inappropriate relationships with minors.

Birmingham is a past Boy Scout Troop Leader and is suspected of utilizing his position to possibly establish relationships with young boys.

On July 28, a 15-year-old boy provided information claiming he had been molested by Birmingham. The acts had been occurring since the boy was 13 years old.

Birmingham lives in the unincorporated area of Oakdale.

Birmingham was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail for child molestation, sodomy, oral copulation, and distribution of pornography to a minor. Sheriff Department records show that Birmingham is no longer being held.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to call Detective Joe Delgado at 209-525-7108. You can also leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636. Tipsters can also text them to CRIMES (274637) by typing “Tip704″ plus the message and be eligible for a cash reward.
