Pimp ex-RAF man slept with underage teen girl then tried to kill himself after arrest

A FORMER Royal Air Force man who tried to encourage two 16-year-old girls into prostitution has been spared jail.

Sesum Malik, 44, paid one of the girls twice for sex and lied to the other that he ran a brothel, the court heard.

The “half blind, overweight and balding” man also told the girls they would be paid if they sent him photos to upload to an “adult working” website.

One of the videos sent by the young girls was of her inserting a sex toy into herself, the court was told.

When first arrested in connection to the offences 18 months ago he had tried to kill himself by jumping out of a bedroom window.

During the trial Malik broke down in tears and swore to the court: “You’ll never see me again”.

Malik claimed he thought both girls, who he had met through the rave scene, were over 18 when they were actually only 16.

One of the girls was 15 when he first met her.

The judge told Malik, of Southall in West London, that he was naive to think both the girls were 18.

Reading Crown Court was told that no penetrative sex took place with one of the girls, but he did kiss and touch her breasts and bottom during a car trip to Harrow.

Malik had sex with the second girl and pimped her out to another two men for which she was paid £100, the court was told.

Judge Alexia Durran told Malik: “You befriended them and acted in order to win their confidence.

“You offered to drive them around at the end of raves; that’s suggested as using grooming like behaviour.

“What you were doing was befriending them in order to see how far you could go.

“By your own admission, you described yourself as half blind, overweight and balding, and feeling inadequate and unattractive.

“It was having contact with them that was able to give you a feeling like being James Bond.”

John Lyons, defending, said: “This is a man who feels enormous shame and substantial remorse.”

He admitted four offences of causing or inciting a child into prostitution and child pornography.

Malik was given 24 month prison sentence suspended for two years and was released from the crown court dock.

He was also ordered to attend a community sex offender group work programme for 100 days and made the subject of a 24 month supervision order.
