Jail for Chellaston pervert who sexually assaulted three underage girls

A pervert who sexually assaulted three young girls and admitted he had a sexual interest in underage girls has been jailed.

Derby Crown Court heard how Aashique Ali, 39, engaged in sexual contact with one of the victims, pulling down her underwear and making lewd remarks to her as he did so.

He also pulled up her top to look at her naked chest, kissed her neck and touched her upper thigh at an address in the city.

Ali, of Chellaston, then targeted his next two victims by pulling down their clothing from the waist down.

One of the victims told her mother what had happened and she called the police

Officers seized Ali’s mobile phone as part of their investigation and they discovered sick child abuse images on it.

Jailing Ali for seven years and four months, Judge Peter Cooke said: “You have been commendably candid about not just what you did but why you did it.

“But one aspect I am struggling to accept, as is the author of your pre-sentence report, is that this prurient interest in underage girls only manifested itself last year.

“You moved from looking at pictures to doing something about it and that has been your downfall.”

Ian West, prosecuting, said the offences all took place last year.

He said Ali, of Chestnut Avenue, touched his first victim sexually, and pulled down her clothing to look at her naked chest before kissing her neck and touching her thigh.

On different occasions he pulled down the clothing of his other two victims so they were naked from the waist down.

He said: “In a victim impact statement, one of the victims says her education has suffered because of what happened and there is a male family friend, who has done absolutely nothing wrong, who she cannot bear to be with anymore.

As well as the jail term, Judge Cooke handed Ali a sexual harm prevention order which will last for the rest of his life.
