A 35-year-old man who had sex with a 13-year-old girl after his marriage broke down has been jailed for 12 months.

Mohammed Khan, of Walden Drive, Heaton, Bradford, told police he picked up the teenager in Manningham Lane because she was scantily dressed and looked cold.

He was convicted by a jury last month of sexual activity with a child in January 2008.

During the trial, the court heard the girl was reported missing and revealed what had happened to her when questioned by police officers.

Today the sentencing judge Recorder David Hatton QC said Khan, of previous good character, fell for the temptation that came his way.

“She, to a significant degree, made advances to you. She is undoubtedly a young girl who is strong minded and has more knowledge of the world than one would normally expect for a young girl of that age,” the judge said.

Recorder Hatton said the girl was a disturbed young woman with a number of issues.

Khan, now divorced, was separated from his wife at the time and vulnerable to “fall foul of the temptation presented to him”.

He must sign on the Sex Offenders’ Register for ten years and the judge made a Sexual Offences Prevention Order for the same period, stopping Khan working with youngsters under 16 unless supervised.
