Vile Bradford paedophile jailed after abusing girl, 8, for five years

Nigha Hussain, 48, of Court Road, Birmingham

A vile paedophile who sexually abused a young girl for five years has been jailed.

Nigha Hussain was around 22 at the time that the incidents began in 1995 when his victim was just eight-years-old.

A nine-day trail heard that he began exposing himself in front of the girl on several occasions in Bradford for a period of five years.

The abuse stopped in 2000 and the brave victim came forward to report it to West Yorkshire Police in 2014.

Hussain, now 48, of Court Road, Birmingham, was charged with seven counts of indecent assault, three counts of attempted rape of a child and indecency with a child.

At a hearing at Bradford Crown Court on Thursday July 29 he was sentenced to a total of 14 years in prison for the attempted rape of a child after a jury found an unanimous guilty verdict, according to West Yorkshire Police.

Hussain was also placed on the sex offenders register for life.
