DEVOUT MUSLIM SENTENCED TO 12 WEEKS FOR TARGETING WOMEN WALKING ALONE,ONE WHILE HE WAS ON HIS WAY TO APPEAR IN COURT TO ANSWER ANOTHER ASSAULT CHARGE (UK)
A FORMER employee at a popular Indian restaurant in Exeter has been jailed for targeting females walking alone in the city.
Mohamed Jamal Miah, 34, was convicted of one sexual assault and two common assaults after his lurid and unwelcome advances left his three victims terrified.
Magistrates told him that custody was the only option and he was given 16 weeks in prison after the court heard victim impact statements from all three woman who said Miah’s actions had left them scared to go out alone.
Described as a 'devout Muslim,' Miah had been living and working at the Argee Bhajee restaurant in Buddle Lane, St Thomas, at the time of the offences.
The court heard he had recently moved to the city from Coventry to Exeter but had struggled to adjust to British culture in the five years since he arrived in the UK.
Sentencing him at Exeter Magistrates Court, the bench chairman told him: “There were three separate lone victims. They were female victims and we have heard from their victim statements that the effect on this is all very similar. There was very limited physical effect but the emotional and mental effect on them is longer lasting and that has greatly influenced our view on these offences.
“One offence even occurred when you were on your way to court to answer a charge of assault. Throughout he has not accepted the seriousness of this on his victims. He is unwilling or unable to explain his behaviour.
