JAILED: Paedophile in gang preying on vulnerable schoolgirl gets nine years
Sexual predator Naim Khan was today jailed for nine years for his part in a sex abuse gang which tormented a ‘vulnerable’ schoolgirl, known as Girl A.
The 38-year-old, of Herschel Crescent, Oxford, was one of four paedophiles convicted in June after police investigation Operation Sabaton discovered they had groomed and exploited her in Oxford between 1999 and 2007.
Speaking after Khan was jailed at Oxford Crown Court, Det Insp Driver revealed there ‘absolutely’ would be more victims abused at the hands of the men who are hiding their suffering from officers.
He added: “His supply of drugs in order to commit sexual offences against a vulnerable girl is an indication of his sexual predatory behaviour.
“I think the people of Oxford and around the country will agree that preying on a vulnerable child for your own sexual gratification is a despicable thing to do.”
During the two-month trial, jurors heard how Girl A had a ‘silent agreement’ with the men, performing sex acts in exchange for drink and drugs.
Khan was convicted of indecently assaulting Girl A on multiple occasions, along with supplying her heroin and cocaine between 1999 and 2000, but acquitted of a further count of indecent assault and rape.
The father-of-five admitted making indecent images of a second victim, known as Girl B, in 2007.
Jailing Khan, Judge Ian Pringle QC said: “You would pick her [Girl A] up in your vehicle, drive her off somewhere, feed her class A drugs and then in return, demanded sex from her which she gave as she felt she was indebted to you.”
Defence barrister Tracy Ayling QC told the court Khan, who had 20 previous convictions, wants to mentor convicts in prison and was working towards rehabilitation.
He has been ‘hit hard’ after being unable to see his children since his arrest last June, she added.
The sex offender, who must pay a victim surcharge and was handed a lifelong sexual harm prevention order, also admitted possessing heroin with intent to supply and possessing cannabis during a visit to Bullingdon Prison on March 21 last year.
He was due to face a second trial but prosecutors previously offered no evidence and he was acquitted of three further sex offences against Girl B.
