Paedophile who abused girls is guilty

A pensioner subjected four young girls, including a four-year-old, to a string of horrific sexual abuse over two decades.

Sazzad Miah, was charged with 18 sexual offences after he was arrested in October last year (2017) following a tip off about the historical abuse which had taken place over 23 years.

During a 16-day trial at Cambridge Crown Court, the jury heard how he abused one girl over a period of 12 years between 1992 and 2004, another over eight years between 2004 and 2012, when two were as young as four, another aged five and the other 10.

The 83-year-old, of Jermyn Close in Cambridge, denied any wrong doing, however he was found guilty.

The charges included: five indecent assaults, two counts of indecency with a child, four counts of rape, two counts of rape of a child under 13, four counts of sexual assault of a child under 13 and one count of sexual activity with a child.
