A Muslim man has been convicted on 17 charges involving sex with underage girls as young as thirteen, including a few rapes.  He would drive around Luton, wearing his shirt and pants from his job ,training to be a police officer and pick up girls he contacted on various social networking sites.  He never made it as a full fledged police officer after a girl filed a complaint against him for rape.  The police then raided his house and found dozens of pictures of underage girls on his home computer and phone.

Mohammad Arshad, 35, was arrested for a total of 39 charges.  He was convicted of 17 charges.  He raped at least two girls, ages 14 and 16 and paid another 16 year old girl to have sex with him.  Most of the girls he picked up refused his requests for sex but evidently that wasn’t a deal breaker.  He touched and fondled some of the girls in an effort to get them to agree to sex.  Some, he even begged for sex.  The convictions just covered 12 of the girls he molested. Several more were not included in the conviction.  He was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

From Sky News:

Arshad was “dangerous” and had abused his position in the police, St Albans Crown Court heard. 

He groomed vulnerable girls through Facebook, WhatsApp and BlackBerry Messenger, sometimes lying about his age and gaining their trust by saying he was a police officer.

He had tried to befriend the girls, sometimes offering them cigarettes and alcohol, before later asking them to perform sexual acts in exchange for money. He was found to have the details of hundreds of girls.

In one example, he asked a girl to come with him in his car before forcing her into the back seat and raping her.

Some of his victims described being taken advantage of, and feeling “physically sick” and “upset” when they re-read the messages in victim statements.

Arshad was convicted of nine counts of causing a child to engage in sexual activity, three of sexual activity with a child and two of meeting a child following sexual grooming. and one count of rape along with various more minor charges.
