A Muslim paedophile from Burnley who constantly harassed and groomed a defenceless young girl has been sent to prison for four years.
Ajad Miah, 26, of Brougham Street, Burnley was also sentenced to a ten year Sexual Offences Prevention Order and was prohibited from ever working with children.
He was found guilty of two counts of sexual activity with a child last month after a three day trial at Burnley Crown Court.
Miah picked the girl up in his vehicle as she was walking along a street in Burnley, late last year.
He plied her with cans of lager and cannabis before engaging in sexual activity with her twice.
He was caught after an inquiry by police and detectives from Operation Freedom – a team set up to tackle sexual exploitation in Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale.
DC Nikki Corbett from Operation Freedom said: “Miah deliberately targeted and preyed on a vulnerable young girl.
“We have worked with the victim and made sure she has been supported throughout what has been a difficult time. She has shown a great deal of bravery and courage throughout the case.
"This type of predatory crime will not be tolerated and through the work of Operation Freedom, we will continue to target, warn and prosecute those responsible.
This type of behaviour is not just unacceptable, it is criminal, and we will pursue those people involved and bring them to justice.”
Whilst we can congratulate ourselves on the fact that without the intense campaign by the British National Party, these vile monsters would still be roaming the streets, abusing and grooming our young girls, we must keep the pressure up until every last one of these vermin are locked up and then deported after a lengthy term of imprisonment .
