Islam Choudhrey, 53, Assaulted Schoolgirl, 16, Paying £50 each time, is Jailed in Telford

Islam Choudhrey, 53, of Solway Drive, Sutton Hill, Telford, ex-taxi driver and fast food worker who paid to develop illicit relation with a Shropshire schoolgirl has been sentenced for a paltry two and a half years imprisonment at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Islam Choudhrey was thought to have paid over £600 to the teenager in the course of a just a few months. He had admitted a charge of paying for the ‘services’ of a child between January and December, 2009.

Choudhrey met the victim, who cannot be named, when she was 16 and he would give her lifts, food, alcohol and cannabis.

The teenager had already been heavily exploited by two other men who were controlling her as a ‘worker’.

Choudhrey became a customer, paying £50 each time, and changed the teenager’s actions towards working as a ‘independent worker’ in her own right.

Mr Denis Desmond, for Choudhrey, said his client had not corrupted the girl and had treated her well and gave her gifts. The money came later.

He said Choudhrey had been unaware that the other men were getting the cash from the girl and that as a result of the case Choudhrey had been disowned by his family and ostracised by the local Muslim community.
