A MARRIED man who sexually assaulted a woman after he misunderstood what she meant by “stop” has been given a suspended jail term.
Business student Serwan Saed, an Iraqi Kurd, groped the woman as he was driving her car, Bristol Crown Court heard.
When he asked her if she would like him to stop and she said “yes”, he misunderstood, stopped in a field and touched her improperly.
The 26-year-old from Birch Road, Yate, whose wife and an interpreter attended court for the sentence, pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a female in July last year.
Judge Michael Longman gave him an 11-month sentence, suspended for two years.
