(BIRMINGHAM, UK) Wolverhampton Crown Court Report: A Wolverhampton rapist has been jailed for 24yrs after subjecting two young girls to years of sexual abuse #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.19: The 37-year-old, from Swindon in Wiltshire, had been living in Wolverhampton when he began his abuse of the first girl by sexual touching, before raping her. The abuse continued for several years until the girl found the courage to report what was happening to her.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Joseph Smith used his position of trust to prey on the girls from a young age for more than four years until his arrest in June 2019.

Joseph Smith

18th January 2022

COURT CASE NOTES:

When detectives from our Public Protection Unit began their investigation, it emerged that Smith had also abused a second girl by sexually assaulting her.

Smith denied the charged and forced both survivors to endure a two week trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court which ended on 24 November 2021 when the jury found him guilty of nine counts of sexual assault and nine counts of rape.

On Thursday (13 Jan) Smith was sentenced to 24 years in prison and will remain on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Detective Constable Kerry Bromhall said:

Smith subjected the girls to years of physical abuse, not to mention the psychological torment that such abuse often leaves behind.

“I commend these young girls for their bravery, firstly in coming forward to report what happened to them, but also in continually reliving their experience through a lengthy investigation, hampered by Covid, and giving evidence at trial.

“I truly hope this sentence gives them the closure they need and the knowledge that Smith is no longer able to do this to anyone else.”

If you have been subjected to sexual abuse, no matter how long ago, we have specialist officers to help you. We work with a range of agencies who can offer advice and support.

(LIVERPOOL, UK.) Crown Court Report: Wirral men jailed for sexual assault on woman in 2018 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.18: Officers have today, Friday 14th January, welcomed the sentencing of two men for sexually assaulting a woman following a night out in Liverpool.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Alex Stormont, now 23, of Woodchurch Road, Oxton, and Taylor Johnson, (top right), also 23, of Edgbaston Way, Bidston, both assaulted the woman at a hotel in Liverpool city centre in March 2018.

STORMONT JOHNSON.jpg

Following the assault their victim came forward to police immediately and the pair were arrested within days.

They both denied any wrongdoing, however evidence was recovered from their mobile phones and social media accounts of the planning of the incident and also of their views of women as sexual objects.

Both were found guilty of sexual assault following a trial at Liverpool Crown Court in December 2020 and both were jailed for three-and-a-half years.

They have also both been ordered to sign the sex offender register for life.

” Despite the overwhelming evidence both men chose to plead not guilty and put their victim through the ordeal of a trial. I am pleased that the jury saw through their lies and they were rightly convicted and have now been sentenced to jail terms.

Detective Constable Claire McDonald said:

“Due to Covid restrictions the case has proved to be long and drawn out and I would like to praise the victim who throughout this ordeal has shown great courage.

“I hope today’s sentencing will not only provide her with some comfort, but also encourage other victims to come forward and have the confidence in us as a police force to take reports seriously and ultimately to ensure offenders are put before the courts.

“If you have been the victim of any sexual assault, there is help and support available to you. Here at Merseyside Police we have specially trained officers who will listen to you and treat you with sensitivity and compassion. There are also a number of reliable and trusted organisations and charities who will support you from your initial report, right through the court process and beyond.

Anyone with information or wants to report a sexual offence is asked to call 101 where you will be spoken to by specially trained officers or you can pass information to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Support for victims is also available through the registered charity the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre Cheshire and Merseyside, who can be contacted on 01925 221 546 or 0330 363 0063 or Rape and Sexual Assault Merseyside (RASA) on 0151 558 1801. In an emergency, always call 999.

Merseyside Police, alongside three other forces, have also been part of a pilot project for a new service to report rape, sexual assault and other sexual offences online – with the option to report anonymously.

The new online Rape and Sexual Assault reporting service is now live on the website here: Merseyside Police and enables people who do not require immediate police assistance to report the crime via their local force website.

For women who have felt or feel unsafe in public spaces the Home Office has set up a pilot service (StreetSafe | Police.uk (www.police.uk) for anyone to anonymously report public places where they have felt or feel unsafe, because of environmental issues, e.g. street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism and/or because of some behaviours, e.g. being followed or verbally abused. Please note: ‘StreetSafe’ is not for reporting crime or incidents.

#AceNewsReport – Jan.15: A Cambridgeshire child abuser has had his sentence increased after it was referred to the Court of Appeal by the Solicitor General, Alex Chalk QC MP.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Sex abuser has sentence increased following ULS referral: The offender, who cannot be named for legal reasons, repeatedly abused a young child and attempted to cover up his actions in multiple ways, including forcing her to delete text messages he sent to her indicating intended sexual activity according to

On 21 October 2021, the offender was sentenced to 11 years and four months’ imprisonment, followed by 12 months on licence at Cambridge Crown Court.

Following the sentencing, the Solicitor General referred the offender’s sentence to the Court of Appeal under the Unduly Lenient Sentence (ULS) scheme.

On 14 January the Court of Appeal found his original sentence to be unduly lenient and increased it to 14 years’ imprisonment with a 12 month extended licence.

Speaking after the hearing, the Solicitor General, Alex Chalk QC MP said:

“This crime was sickening in every sense of the word. His actions have caused lasting severe psychological and physical harm to the victim. I hope the Court’s decision to increase his sentence can bring his victim some comfort.”

(CANTERBURY, U.K.) Court Report: A motorcyclist who smuggled heroin into the UK in a void hidden in a top box on his bike has been jailed for more than five years after a National Crime Agency investigation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.15: When his motorbike was searched by Border Force officers, a hide was found in the top box on the back of his bike: Two brown taped packages were hidden inside with “TT” stamped on their surface: NCA investigators tested the packages and found them to contain heroin with an estimated street value of £100,000.

#AceDailyNews NCA Report: Motorbike top box hid £100,000 of heroin: Ezekiel Rose, 40, from Pimlico, London, was stopped at the Channel Tunnel control zone in France on his return to the UK on 26 October 2021:

Individual in question facing forwards.

COURT CASE NOTES:

When questioned, Rose claimed he had been to northern Spain to take photographs and view a property: However, investigators established he had not been out of the UK for long enough to have been able to travel to Spain.

Rose claimed in interview that he believed the drugs were “just herbal”. He pleaded guilty to one count of importation of a controlled drug at Canterbury Crown Court on 28 October but claimed he believed the drug was cannabis: This was rejected by the Judge and he was sentenced to five years and two months in prison today.

Mark Howes, Branch Commander at the NCA, said:

” This was a crude attempt to bring class A drugs into the UK.

“Rose had created a backstory to try and fool investigators, packing photography and camping equipment above the hide which we believe was created specifically for smuggling.

“Heroin brings exploitation and violence to the streets and we work closely with partners to target smugglers at the border.”

(NOTTINGHAM, U.K) Crown Court Report: A man has been jailed for more than two years after he admitted illegally accessing a number of victims’ devices to spy on them and build a collection of indecent images of both children and adults #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.14: He was also identified as a customer of weleakinfo, an online market place selling stolen credentials, which was taken offline last year following an NCA-led investigation.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Cyber voyeur hacked computers to spy on victims: Robert Davies, 32, came to the attention of National Crime Agency investigators in 2019 after he purchased a number of cyber crime tools, including crypters and remote administration tools (RATs).

Davies was infecting his victims’ phones or computers with malicious software by disguising it with the crypters so their anti-virus protection would not detect it. He then used the RATs to gain remote access to their devices and steal any sexual images (mainly of females) they had stored on there.

On at least one occasion, he used his illegal access to spy on a teenage girl through her webcam, turning the encounter into a number of indecent images. Officers recovered this, along with a further 27 indecent images and videos of children, on his computer.

Davies was also using numerous fake online profiles to mask his identity and contact his victims on various messaging apps, in an attempt to build a relationship with them and attack their devices using links sent through the chats. There was evidence that he had been doing this over a number of years.

In total NCA officers identified and visited over 30 victims of Davies throughout the course of the investigation.

He was arrested three times between November 2019 and August 2021, each time being charged with further offences as officers analysed his devices and the true scale of his offending came to light.

On 2 September, Davies pleaded guilty to 24 Computer Misuse Act offences, voyeurism, three counts of possessing indecent images of children (IIOC), making IIOC and possessing extreme pornographic images.

He was sentenced today (11 January) at Nottingham Crown Court to 26 months in prison. He was also placed on the sex offenders’ register, given a 10 year restraining order on five of the victims and a 10 year sexual harm prevention order.

” Davies had amassed what can only be described as a cyber criminal’s toolkit.

Andrew Shorrock, Operations Manager from the NCA’s National Cyber Crime Unit, said:

“Not only was he using these tools to break in to peoples’ devices, he was using them to spy on his unsuspecting victims and to steal naked images of them for his own sexual gratification.

“Even more disturbing is the fact that at least one of his victims was a teenager and we found a collection of images and videos of child sexual abuse on his computer.

“Increasing the barrier of entry into cyber crime by reducing the availability of, and accessibility to, off-the-shelf tools is a key focus for the NCA. We work with a range of partners to target both criminals and their infrastructure, to ultimately disrupt and deter this type of offending.”

(LONDON) JUST IN: MI5 has issued a rare warning to MPs that a Chinese agent has infiltrated Parliament to interfere in UK politics #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.13: She then gave donations to politicians, with funding coming from foreign nationals in China and Hong Kong: It comes after a “significant, long-running” investigation by MI5, Whitehall sources told the BBC.

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC Security News Report: Chinese agent infiltrating Parliament, MI5 warns as alert from the security service said Christine Ching Kui Lee “established links” for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with current and aspiring MPs: By Gordon Corera & Jennifer Scott
Security correspondent & political reporter, BBC News

Houses of Parliament

The security service said anyone contacted by Ms Lee should be “mindful of her affiliation” and its “remit to advance the CCP’s agenda”.

Conservative MP and former party leader, Sir Iain Duncan Smith, brought up the alert in the Commons, confirming it had been emailed out to MPs by the Speaker.

He said it was “a matter of grave concern”, calling for Ms Lee to be deported and demanding the government make a statement to the House.

Former defence minister Tobias Ellwood also called for a statement in the Commons, adding: “This is the sort grey-zone interference we now anticipate and expect from China.

“But the fact that it’s happened to this Parliament, there must be a sense of urgency from this government.”

Issuing an alert about an individual is an unusual move for MI5. 

It signals that their long-running investigation had led them to become sufficiently concerned that they felt they had to act now. 

We have heard about concerns over Russian influence in the past but China, British intelligence officials say, has now become their top priority.

The allegation here is interference – covertly gaining influence – and not espionage (stealing secrets).

And one concern from security officials is that there are not the laws in place to be able to tackle interference.

As a result, they sometimes believe that going public – as they have done in this case – is the best way of disrupting any ongoing risk.

According to the alert, Ms Lee claimed her involvement with Parliament had been to “represent the UK Chinese and increase diversity”.

But MI5 said that activity “had been undertaken in covert coordination with the United Front Work Department [of the CCP], with funding provided by foreign nationals located in China and Hong Kong”.

The UFWD is alleged to be seeking to “cultivate relations” with “influential figures” to ensure the UK political landscape is favourable to the CCP and to challenge those that raise concerns about the party, including over human rights.

The security service said Ms Lee had “extensive engagement with individuals across the UK political spectrum”, including the now disbanded All Party Parliamentary Group called Chinese in Britain.

But they warned Ms Lee “may aspire to establish APPGs [parliamentary groups] to further the CCP’s agenda”.

Gardiner donations

One MP who received funding from Ms Lee was Labour’s Barry Gardiner, who began getting donations from her law firm, Christine Lee & Co, at the end of 2014. 

According to the register of MP’s interests, between then and 2020, Mr Gardiner received over £420,000 from her, mostly covering the costs of employing parliamentary researchers. 

Ms Lee’s son was also understood to have volunteered for the Labour MP and was later employed as his diary manager. 

Labour MP Barry Gardiner received donations from Christine Ching Kui Lee’s company

In a statement, Mr Gardiner, who was a member of the shadow cabinet when Jeremy Corbyn was Labour leader, confirmed he had received the donations and that Ms Lee’s son had worked for him.

But he said he had been “liaising with our security services for a number of years” about her and MI5 has “always known, and been made fully aware by me, of her engagement with my office and the donations she made to fund researchers in my office in the past”.

The Brent North MP said she had “no role” in who was appointed as his researchers and all donations were “properly reported”, adding: “I have been assured by the security services that whilst they have definitively identified improper funding channelled through Christine Lee, this does not relate to any funding received by my office.”

He also confirmed her son resigned from his post on Thursday, and that MI5 had no intelligence that showed he was aware of, or complicit in, his mother’s actions.

(CANTERBURY, UK.) Court Report: A van driver who attempted to smuggle heroin and cocaine worth £16.5-million by hiding it within catering supplies has been jailed for 10 years #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.10: The van contained boxes of nitrous oxide canisters for the catering industry. However, when searched by Border Force officers, 183 kilos of heroin and cocaine was found concealed inside.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Ross Patrick Deffley, 26, from Solihull, was arrested and a National Crime Agency investigation began when he was stopped at the border in Dover on 21 September 2021.

Image 4

NCA investigators subsequently found Deffley’s fingerprints and DNA on multiple packages containing 97 kilos of heroin and 86 kilos of cocaine. An extendable baton was also found inside the cab.

The consignment, which Deffley claimed was for the catering industry, was actually destined for a residential address he could access. Investigators found he had recently set up companies to transport nitrous oxide canisters, in which the drugs were smuggled.

Deffley was convicted of two counts of attempting to import class A drugs on 30 November, and had earlier been convicted of possession of an offensive weapon.

He was sentenced to 10 years in prison at Canterbury Crown Court today (6 January). He will now be subject to a confiscation investigation under the Proceeds of Crime act to identify and seize the cash and goods obtained from his drug smuggling.

NCA Branch Commander Mark Howes said:

“This was an extremely large amount of Class A drugs, with an estimated street value of £16.5 million. The seizure would have been a major blow to the criminal network likely to be behind the attempted importation.

“Organised crime groups involved in drug trafficking are often responsible for violence and exploitation in our communities, so cutting off their international supply lines protects the public from the harm these dangerous drugs can cause.

“Working alongside our partners in Border Force, we continue to work on the frontline against drug smuggling.”

Dave Smith, Regional Director Border Force South East & Europe said:

“Drug supply chains are violent and exploitative, degrading neighbourhoods across our country.

“The sentencing of Ross Deffley this week sends a clear message to anyone considering attempting to smuggle illegal drugs into the country that we remain committed and prepared in tackling drug supply chains.

“Those officers involved in this seizure can be proud of their work in stopping these dangerous drugs from entering our communities.”

(PORTSMOUTH, UK) JUST IN: Residents of a block of flats in have said they are living with “disgusting” levels of mould in the building #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.10: The privately owned Windsor House has 37 flats many of which are suffering from damp, prompting tenants to start a campaign for help.

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC UK News Report: Portsmouth flat residents demand action over damp and mould from owners who are a ‘private management company ‘ and start a campaign

Mould on walls
The walls of Ian Knight’s bathroom are covered in mould

Leah Harwick said they all wanted their homes to be “liveable”.

Portsmouth City Council said it would inspect the properties with a view to getting the owners to take action.

Ian Knight, who has lived in the block on Canal Walk for 13 years, has mould covering the walls of his bathroom.

“It’s disgusting, you can’t stay in there for more than 10 minutes at a time,” he said.

He said his landlord’s phone numbers did not work and “nobody knows” how to contact them.

Leah Harwick is among the residents calling for help

Ms Harwick said her ceiling has leaked over the past year and communal areas were used by drug addicts and rough sleepers because of a broken door lock. 

“It’s quite bad. All of us just want help, we just want it rectified and our flats to be liveable.”

Another resident, Chris Coleman, said: “There are people wiping down walls and within days, the black mould is back. 

“Nobody seems to be doing anything. This is why its got to the stage where we’ve come together as a collective and we need help to get this sorted.

Ceilings have been affected by damp with in the 37-flat block

Darren Saunders, Portsmouth City Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for housing, described the building as a “horror show”.

“It’s horrific,” he said. “There are various things we can do – we can do repairs ourselves and recover the cost from the landlord, but the problem is who the landlord is.

“It’s a complex management structure that owns this block – we’re going to get to the bottom of it because the tenants deserve it.”

Council officers have since begun inspections of the flats.

The block’s owner has not responded to a request for a comment.

Residents of Windsor House have called for help in fixing their problems with damp

(COUNTY DURHAM, U.K.) Counter Terrorism Policing North East (CTPNE)A Report: A woman from Crook who supported terrorism has been banned from teaching for life #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.09: Ms Sebbagh was arrested in 2017 and investigated by police but the Crown Prosecution Service concluded there was insufficient evidence to bring criminal charges, the panel heard.

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC UK News Report: Crook teacher banned over terrorist funding: Miriam Sebbagh, who worked at Hunwick Primary School in Crook, County Durham, was found to have given money to people she knew were involved in terrorism: A teacher misconduct panel also heard she tried to radicalise a friend.

Hand holding £20 notes

Counter Terrorism Policing North East (CTPNE) “maintained a high level of concern regarding Ms Sebbagh’s state of mind, the opinions which she espoused and her actions within the teaching arena”, its report said.

The panel heard CTPNE had received information that Ms Sebbagh had given £2,500 to an individual linked to a proscribed terrorist organisation.

She had made “numerous” other payments to individuals, charities, overseas accounts and crowd-funded donation sites.

Jihad video

The panel heard CTPNE was concerned Ms Sebbagh was funding travel from the UK for people wanting to join ISIS or other extremist groups.

It told the Teaching Regulation Authority that some of the payments were made to people who had been investigated or arrested for suspected terrorism related offences. 

The misconduct panel report said Ms Sebbagh believed violent jihad was the correct interpretation of Islamic teaching but lied about her beliefs and actions.

She claimed not to know ISIS was a terrorist organisation and not to know a video she sent to one person promoted jihad, it said.

She also claimed not to have known another individual was involved in encouraging hate against the West when she sent him money when in fact she shared his views.

Unacceptable professional conduct

Ms Sebbagh provided the panel with no formal response or evidence to be considered and did not attend the hearing.

The panel heard a court order had been made requiring her to forfeit £4,670 seized from her safe in June 2018 which she intended to donate to people she knew were involved in terrorism.

She was also ordered to pay costs of £12,654. 

The teacher was found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct and conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute and was prohibited from teaching indefinitely.

Hunwick Primary School headteacher Stuart Joyce said none of the allegations concerned her employment there.

She had been suspended as soon as the school was informed of the allegations and then formally dismissed in October 2018, he said.

(WARWICKSHIRE, UK) Warwick Crown Court Report: Following a police investigation, three men have been sentenced to more than 40 years in prison, for offences including a robbery in Rugby in 2019 #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.08: Kevin Mullen, aged 38 formerly of Edward Street, Nuneaton, Daniel Jordan, aged 43 formerly of Spruce Road, Nuneaton, and Aaron Liburd, aged 42 formerly of Prior Park Road, Rugby, all appeared at Warwick Crown Court today (Friday 7 January).

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Three sentenced for more than 40yrs in prison on Friday January 7th: for a robbery in Rugby in 2019

At around 3.40pm on 9 April 2019, a driver of a cash in transit van was threatened with a knife and assaulted outside Lidl on Bilton Road, Rugby. The incident caused the driver to lose hold of his cash, which the suspects then stole and left with the money in a vehicle. However, when the security dye subsequently went off on the cash, the men abandoned their car on Farnborough Avenue and left the scene.

Liburd was arrested on 12 April 2021 for the offence:

At around 5am on 6 May 2019, a robbery took place at Tesco in Skegness. This was later established to have been committed by Mullen and Jordan while on the run from the Rugby robbery.

Mullen was arrested on 10 May 2019, and Jordan was arrested on 18 May 2019 in Fenny Drayton. He tried to make off from police in a vehicle during the arrest, and was subsequently also charged with dangerous driving.

In May 2021, they pleaded guilty to the following offences:

• Aaron Liburd: robbery outside Lidl, Rugby on 9 April 2019.

• Kevin Mullen: robbery outside Lidl, Rugby on 9 April 2019, robbery at Tesco Express, Skegness on 6 May 2019       

• Daniel Jordan: robbery outside Lidl, Rugby on 9 April 2019, robbery at Tesco Express, Skegness on 6 May 2019, and dangerous driving in relation to the pursuit on 18 May 2019.

The men were due to be sentenced last year, but due to other circumstances this was delayed. Today, they were sentenced to:

• Aaron Liburd:  11 years and six months.

• Kevin Mullen:   16 years

• Daniel Jordan: 16 years and a driving disqualification on his release.

Investigating officer, Det Insp Collette O’Keefe from Leamington CID, said: “This was a significant investigation which involved a dedicated team working on it for two years.

“On the day of the Rugby robbery, these men showed extreme violence, using machetes in broad daylight outside of a supermarket. This was a pre-planned job and a terrifying ordeal for the victims to go through.

“Although sentencing has been delayed, I hope the victims will now be able to take some comfort that these men will now face considerable time in prison for their actions.

“I’d like to thank the investigating team for their tireless dedication, to enable this case to come to a successful conclusion.”

(LIVERPOOL, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Man jailed for 18-months after threatening staff at a bar in Birkenhead with a machete #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.08: Browne received 18 months for carrying the machete and a further six months for a breach of a suspended sentence, to be served consecutively.

#AceDailyNews Crown Court Report Luke Browne, 31, of Paterson Street, Birkenhead, was sentenced yesterday (Thursday 6 January) after being found guilty of possession of a bladed weapon and breaching a suspended sentence.

COURT CASE NOTES:

He was also issued with a criminal behaviour order which prevents him from entering parts of Birkenhead town centre and remaining in any shops or businesses when asked to leave by staff within Wirral for five years.

At around 2.40am on Monday 25 October 2021, following a verbal altercation with door staff at the Platinum Lounge in Birkenhead, Browne threatened them with a large machete he was carrying in his trousers and then fled the scene.

Following extensive CCTV and witness enquiries carried out by officers, footage was obtained which showed Browne brandishing the machete at the door staff.

Browne was later arrested on Wednesday 8 December and charged.

He pleaded guilty of possession of a bladed weapon yesterday at an earlier court hearing.

Inspector Peter Rexwinkel said:

Browne’s reckless actions could have left staff at Platinum with serious injuries.

“No one should be threatened or targeted with such dangerous weapons when they are just doing their job.

“Carrying knives and dangerous weapons can and does have devastating consequences to victims and our community. I hope this result shows that the force is committed to combatting knife crime and bringing the people responsible to justice.

“I am pleased that the Court has recognised the severity of the offence by imposing a custodial sentence and also preventing Browne from entering parts of Birkenhead town centre and endangering our community.”

To report any knife crime or the use of dangerous weapons, DM us on Twitter via @MerPolCC or message us on Facebook at ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’. Alternatively, call 101 or contact the independent charity @CrimestoppersUK anonymously on 0800 555 111, or via their website: https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/forms/give-information-anonymously.

(BIRMINGHAM, U.K.) Crown Court Report: A man has been jailed for 1980s – 1990’s abuse as survivors praised for their compelling evidence #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.08: Officers praised the courage of four people after their “compelling” evidence helped us convict the man who sexually abused them more than 30 years ago when they were children.

#AceDailyNews Crown Court Report: The two women and two men were aged between eight and 17 when they were routinely sexually assaulted and raped by Derek Robinson from the mid-1980s into the 90s.

Derek Robinson

7th January 2022

COURT CASE NOTES:

Most of the offences took place at an address in Chelmsley Wood where Robinson lived at the time, but one woman – now aged 41 – told how he raped her multiple times a day during a weekend trip

She also witnessed Robinson – who was in his 20s at the time – committing sexual acts against the boys over a period spanning many years.

The 63-year-old, from Chelmsley Wood, was convicted on 23 November of multiple sex offences against the four victims who were all known to him.Derek Robinson has been jailed for historic sexual abuse

He had denied all counts claiming the four had conspired to concoct false stories against him – but a jury dismissed that defence and found him guilty on a total of five counts of rape, seven indecent assaults, two counts of indecency with a child and two of buggery.

The jury failed to reach a decision on four charges of indecent assault. 

And today (7 Jan) he was jailed for 23 years and made to sign the sex offender’s register for life. He will also be bound by a two-year licence period upon his release.

We would not have been able to secure justice against Robinson had it not been for the bravery and conviction of those who disclosed the torment they went through and supported the prosecution.

Detective Constable Becci Jones worked in our Public Protection Unit (PPU) at the time she was investigating the case. Officers in PPU are specially trained to support those who are abused, guide them through the police process, and get them any help they need.

She said: “All four survivors deserve huge credit: this was not easy for them. They handled themselves with great dignity and were compelling witnesses. 

“Robinson suggested they were all fabricating their accounts – but they were very plausible, with lots of consistency across their accounts of what happened – and it is beyond the bounds of reason they could hatch such similar stories as part of a detailed conspiracy to convict Robinson.

“They described trying to put the abuse to the back of their minds as their way of handling the psychological effect of Robinson’s abuse. They kept the awful experiences to themselves but we helped them disclose what happened, at their pace when they were ready to talk. 

“At the time Robinson convinced them what was happening was normal. It was important to show that what happened wasn’t right, it was shocking abuse and that it’s important for the offender to face justice for what he’d put them through.”

One mother confronted Robinson in 1993 after she found a letter written by her daughter, intended for Robinson, in which she implored him to stop the sexual touching.

However, the offences were first raised with us in January 2019 after another woman revealed to a manager she’d been abused and witnessed others suffering at Robinson’s hands.

During the course of our enquiries we spoke to other children he’d come into contact with Robinson and none have disclosed any offences.

It’s never too late to come forward and report sexual or physical abuse. We have a track record of securing justice against people who committed offences decades earlier.

Call us on 101 to speak to someone in our Public Protection Unit or for more advice visit our website: 

However, if you would prefer not to speak to a police officer, you can go to one of the region’s Horizon SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) https://horizonsarc.org.uk/ You can also call them on 0800 970 0375.

(SHEFFIELD, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Nazir Ahmed, formerly Lord Ahmed, guilty of the serious sexual assault of a boy and the attempted rape of a girl, both aged under 13, in offenses dating back to the 1970s #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Jan.07: The Pakistan-born politician was a teenager himself at the time of the offenses, Sheffield Crown Court heard. The prosecutor said that, while Ahmed had claimed all along that the allegations were a “malicious fiction,” a phone recording of a conversation between his two victims back in 2016 proved beyond reasonable doubt that the story had not been “made up or concocted.”

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Ex-peer sexually assaulted boy and attempted to rape girl a woman who was party to that conversation recounted before the jury how Ahmed had attempted to rape her in the early 1970s according to RT News

The head of the Special Crime Division of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Rosemary Ainslie, praised the guilty verdict as proof that “where there is sufficient evidence, even in challenging cases, the CPS will bring a prosecution, put evidence before a jury and see rightful convictions,” even, as in this case, the defendant had held a “position of power, influence and responsibility for some time in the House of Lords.”

Ahmed’s two brothers, Mohammed Farouq and Mohammed Tariq, were charged with the indecent assault of the same boy whom Ahmed had also abused, but deemed unfit to stand trial. The politician was bailed pending a sentencing hearing to be held on February 4.

Ex-Tory MP found guilty of raping sleeping wife

Ahmed is no stranger to allegations of sexual misconduct. He was forced to resign from the House of Lords in November 2020, following a conduct committee report that accused him of sexually and emotionally exploiting a vulnerable woman who had sought his assistance. 

Ahmed has the dubious distinction of being the first peer recommended for expulsion. He stepped down of his own accord, however, before his colleagues could remove him from his post. The scandal that led to his downfall at the time was brought to public attention by an investigation carried out by the BBC program ‘Newsnight’.You can share this story on social media:
