Jailed for raping 11-year-old girl 

A 33-year-old man who raped an 11-year-old girl has been locked up for eight years.

Shamol Miah, of Little Carter Lane in Mansfield, was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on January 29.

He pleaded guilty to raping a child under the age of 13.

The court was told how Miah approached his victim in Mansfield town centre in May last year.

After exchanging mobile numbers, they spoke to one another and he arranged to pick her up from her house at around 4am.

Miah took the girl to a secluded area and raped her in his car, before taking her back to the town centre where he dropped her off.

Officers traced Miah as a result of CCTV enquiries, phone work and DNA evidence.

He was also handed a ten-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and placed on the Sex Offender’s register for the remainder of his life.
