Paedophile destroyed 14-year-old girl’s life and left her with an STI

A paedophile “destroyed” a 14-year-old’s life after engaging in sexual activity with her in a country park.

Mohammed Jama, 47, lied to the victim claiming he was 25 and also left her with an STI. The girl’s mother said his vile acts have “destroyed the whole family”.

The victim and a friend met Jama on a bus and made their age clear to him

But Jama lied about his age, persuaded the girl to call him and arranged to meet her at an Asda store on October 4, 2019.

Two sexual acts took place at Kingfisher Country Park in Shard End, Birmingham, said Andrew Wallace, prosecuting, at Birmingham Crown Court.

Jama of Granville Street, Ladywood was jailed for seven years and two months after he admitted two charges of sexual activity with a child.

The teenager later sent to a text to her aunt, who would have known she had not gone to school that day, saying something “bad” had happened.

Mr Wallace said Jama, from Ladywood, Birmingham, later made several attempts to contact the girl.

After the matter was reported to the police, the 14-year-old was examined and found to have contracted an STI.

Jama was traced to a nearby hostel and he was linked to the incident through DNA.

In a statement, the victim’s mother said “Not only has it destroyed my daughter’s life, it has destroyed the whole family.

“My beautiful daughter was left feeling withdrawn and not wanting to leave the house. She has isolated herself in her room.”
