Birmingham man who had sex with sheep jailed
A MIDLAND asylum seeker, once jailed for having sex with a sheep, has been sent back to prison for breaching the Sex Offenders’ Register.
Hidyat Amin, 34, of Alum Rock, Birmingham. Amin, was placed on the register for seven years in 2006 after being found guilty of romping with the animal in a farm shed.
The Kurd was jailed for six months for that offence which took place at a farm in East Yorkshire.
Amin reportedly had feared he would be deported upon his release. However, he was allowed to stay in the UK and after being freed he moved to Birmingham.
He appeared at Birmingham Crown Court on Thursday, accused of one count of common assault and another of being in possession of an offensive weapon.
The charges related to an alleged incident said to have taken place outside his former partner’s house in Birmingham. He was cleared of both those offences after the prosecution offered no evidence.
But Amin was convicted of a separate offence of failing to comply with the conditions of the Sex Offences’ Register. Thursday’s hearing was told the Kurd had failed to notify police in advance that he planned to visit Southampton in October 2009. The strict conditions of his registration mean he must notify police of wherever he is staying.
A judge at Birmingham Crown Court jailed Amin for eight weeks for the breach.
The sex offender was jailed for having sex with an animal after being trapped by DNA evidence – after his underpants and socks were found at the scene.
His trial at Hull Crown Court heard that a man had been seen acting suspiciously under a full moon and had been spotted several times previously lurking in Frank Davidson’s farmyard in Preston, East Yorkshire.
On one occasion the man casually smoked a cigarette before driving off, the court heard.
The sheep and a ram had been isolated as part of treatment for foot rot. The farmer said he had found pants and socks on three occasions as well as bread crumbs used to entice the animals.
Prosecutor Caroline Wigin said DNA swabs suggested a billion to one chance the sex attacker was not Amin.
