Paedophile Mohammed Shahid is the latest big winner in Britain’s 2 tier justice system. The Newcastle nonce groomed a 14 year old schoolgirl he met on social networking site Facebook. Pestering her for sex despite finding out she was a child. He admitted meeting a child following sexual grooming, inciting a child into sexual activity and possessing indecent images during his appearance at Newcastle Crown Court.
Despite his admission of guilt, Judge Brian Forster QC gave him a pathetic suspended sentence, something all to common for Muslim sex offenders. What kind of message does it send out to other child groomers. Its OK to groom them as long as you don’t get as far as having sex with the child?? Absolute joke of a sentence. If his was going to be spared jail, why wasn’t this case dealt with at a Magistrates Court and the expense involved with a Crown Court trial spared.
Mohammed Shahid had one thing on his mind whilst grooming the child and that was sex. I’m certain that had the next meeting between the predator and his victim been somewhere less public. That sexual contact between the pair would of happened.
Heaton pervert met girl at Metrocentre after grooming her on Facebook
A schoolgirl met Mohammed Shahid, who was twice her age, at the Metrocentre after he sexually groomed her over the internet
A pervert who met a schoolgirl in the Metrocentre after grooming her on Facebook has been spared prison.
Mohammed Shahid befriended the 14-year-old on the social networking website then started pestering her for sex.
A court heard he initially did not know how young she was but even when he found out, he persisted with his illegal pursuit.
Shahid arranged to meet the girl at the Metrocentre last April, where they spent ten minutes together but the only physical contact was a hug.
When the teenager revealed to friends what had been going on, they told a teacher and the police were called.
Now Shahid, 28, has been given a suspended prison sentence after admitting meeting a child following sexual grooming, inciting a child into sexual activity and possessing indecent images.
Judge Brian Forster QC, at Newcastle Crown Court, told him: “Young people regularly use the internet as a major part of their daily life and parents need to know their children can use the internet safely without their children being subjected to preying activities of people who are older.
“Clearly, involvement in a relationship of this type with a young person must have a significant effect on their wellbeing.”
The court heard Shahid sent the girl a friend request on Facebook then ended up getting her mobile number.
Katherine Dunn, prosecuting, said: “The conversation became sexual and the defendant started asking her for sex.
“She believed at that stage they were in a relationship but they had not even met.”
On April 14 last year they arranged to meet for the first time at the Metrocentre. The girl was with some friends and she and Shahid hugged and spent ten minutes together.
Contact between them continued until the girl’s school friends got wind of it and blew the whistle. Miss Dunn said the offences had affected the victim’s esteem and her relationship with her family.
Shahid, of Cheltenham Terrace, Heaton, Newcastle, was given a two year suspended prison sentence with supervision and must sign the sex offender register.
Mark Saunders, defending, said “He presents as a very isolated individual.
“The contact was made through a website which did not make him aware of her age, although he did become aware of and persisted with it.”
