Birmingham primary school teacher JAILED for child sex offences
A man who worked as a primary school supply teacher has been jailed after sending sexual communications to an undercover police officer, he believed to be a 12-year-old girl.
Nasser Khalil aged 49 of Stechford, Birmingham, said he wanted to have sexual relations with the child the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) told the court.
Birmingham Crown Court heard during the online chat with the child he believed to be just 12 years old, he asked if she was a virgin and described the “vile” things he wanted to do to her.
He also asked for selfies and suggested they wait till she turned 16 before meeting. Admitting to two offences, one count of sexual communication with a child and one count of attempting to cause or incite a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity, Khalil was given a 20-month prison sentence.
Virinder Bains, of the CPS, said: “Nasser Khalil has committed very serious crimes which have been met with the appropriate punishment.
“We will seek to prosecute, and protect all children from those who pose a risk to them and who seek to engage in such criminal behaviour.”
Balbir Singh, defending, said: “This man has used his teaching skills over the years to help people from disadvantaged backgrounds by tutoring them for no fee.
“Up to November 6 last year he lead a good and productive life and was of positive good character but his home life was falling apart.
“Sometimes, when that happens, people seek solace in companionship elsewhere.
“He was using a chatroom and he came across this profile.”
Passing sentence, Judge Richard Bond said “It is right to say you made immediate sexual references while you made it plain you were prepared to commit sexual acts.
“Rather bizarrely you directed her to a video on YouTube. In my judgment, you were trying to put the child at her ease by demonstrating you were a teacher and that you could be trusted.
“The communications you were having with the girl demonstrate you are sexually interested and excited by talking to underage girls.
“You, of all people, would have known the effect upon the child you were communicating with if it had been a real child.”
Khalil was arrested at his home in November and following his sentencing has been placed on the sex offenders register for 10 years.
