Pervert Nadeem Mohamed avoids jail despite targeting schoolchildren
A pervert who parked outside a school in greater Manchester and performed sex acts on himself has been spared jail.
Despite the court acknowledging that Nadeem Mohamed, 38, 'quite deliberately' parked in the vicinity of the school in Greater Manchester before performing the lewd acts so schoolgirls could see him, he was allowed to walk free.
The court heard how Mohamed 'targeted schoolgirls in uniform' so that they could see him performing sex acts on himself.
Manchester Crown Court heard that the 'nauseating and repulsive' offences all took place at the end of the school day across three days in early 2018.
On 5th February 2018, a teenage girl saw Mohamed parked in his Audi with his window down, at around 3pm when pupils were leaving for the day, and saw him performing a sex act on himself.
She took a photo of the car and went back into school to tell her teacher.
The following day Mohamed was witnessed performing another sex act by another schoolgirl who said she felt 'disgusted' by what she saw.
The next day another girl witnessed his 'disgusting' behaviour, calling him a 'paedo' before walking off.
He was arrested on February 8, 2018, and an analysis of his phone found internet searches which prosecutors said indicated he had an "interest in teen and pre-teen girls" the court heard.
All five of his victims were under the age of 16.
It is not possible for a child under the age of 16 to give consent to sexual activity in Britain, any such sexual activity would constitute the rape or sexual assault of a minor.
A judge said Mohamed had 'targeted' the area around the school where girls wearing uniform would be passing and 'clearly wanted them to see you.'
One girl said she has 'flashbacks', and doesn't walk home anymore, and uses the bus instead
Another said it has affected her behaviour in school, and said she has become "more aggressive" as a result.
Two other girls said they were left feeling anxious following the incident.
Nadeem Mohamed, of Cheetham Hill, pleaded guilty to five counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child at an earlier hearing.
Despite the obvious trauma caused to the children involved, Mohamed was only handed a two year jail sentence, suspended for two years.
He must complete 55 rehabilitation activity requirement days including a specialist sex offenders programme.
He was also made subject to a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years.
Passing sentence Judge Hilary Manley said: "You targeted areas outside a school.
"And you targeted teenage school girls who were wearing school uniform.
"You clearly wanted them to see you.
"It is disgusting and unacceptable that they were targeted on their way home from the school, where they are going to themselves an education, and then subjected to the nauseating and repulsive sight of you doing what you were doing.
"You have personal difficulties which I have read about.
"There has been an unconscionable in bringing this case to court which I must take into account, and you have not offended since.
"I am satisfied you are genuinely remorseful and that there is a realistic prospect of rehabilitation.
"However you must work with the probation service to make sure you not offend again."
Nadeem Mohamed walked out of Manchester Crown Court on Monday this week.
