Telford man jailed for raping teenager
A Telford paedophile has been sentenced to 11 years in prison having previously been found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of attempted rape.
During his trial, the court heard that between June and August 2007 Mohammed Ali Sultan, 28, attended the house of the victim on several occasions and forced her to have sex and perform sex acts on him.
Sultan, who had originally pleaded not guilty to these offences, is currently serving a seven-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a child and one count of controlling child prostitution in 2012, following a separate investigation.
Following his prison sentence, Sultan, of Victoria Avenue, Wellington, will serve a further five years on license.
DCI Neil Jamieson said: "Today's sentence is welcomed and clearly indicates the danger Sultan poses to the community.
"This has been a traumatic process for the victim and one which has taken some time to come to a conclusion. I'd like to praise her bravery in coming forward to report offences and for her determination to ensure Sultan has been brought to justice. This further demonstrates the increased confidence people have in coming forward to report such offences in the knowledge that they will be thoroughly investigated and support will be put in place."
