Married father jailed for rape of 13-year-old girl
A married father plied a 13-year-old girl with booze then raped her at his home while his wife and children were on holiday.
Mayas Ubed, 29, formerly of Walton Avenue, Sneinton, befriended the girl and started meeting her in a park in the Beeston area.
He had lied about his name, calling himself Harry.
On one occasion, in August 2012, Ubed took a group of people, including the 13-year-old girl, to a property in the city.
He said he was looking after it for a friend who was on holiday. In fact, it was his own home and it was his wife and children, who were on holiday.

Ubed had coerced the girl into going to his home with him and…

Man jailed for 18 years for raping woman and young boy
A Stoke On Trent man has been jailed for 18 years after being found guilty of raping a child and adult.
48-year-old Francis Gilbert raped a woman as well as a child under the age of 13.
He also sexually assaulted the youngster after grooming him.
Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard both victims have been ‘deeply affected’ by Gilbert’s offending.
Prosecutor Simon Ward said the woman was left ‘completely hysterical’ after being raped and now has nightmares.
The schoolboy was ‘deeply troubled’ by the abuse and is having therapy.
Gilbert, of Ridgway Road, Hanley, denied all the charges.
But he was convicted by two separate juries in two trials of raping the woman and raping and sexually assaulting the child.
The court heard Gilbert still ‘vehemently’ denies the allegations.
But Judge David Fletcher said Gilbert has displayed a…

Man, 20 jailed for grooming children
A MAN who groomed under-age girls through a social networking website has been locked up for five years and three months.
David Graves, 20, sent explicit messages to schoolgirls through social media but was caught after a victim’s mother found topless images of her 12-year-old daughter. He admitted taking part in sex acts with the girl and another 14-year-old and told police: “I know what I did was wrong.”
Graves, who had a stash of child abuse images on a computer, was later found to have been in contact with a 13-year-old whom he also sexually molested.
The High Court in Edinburgh heard that he had also spoken to other males on the internet and exchanged information with a man in Norway on the sexual abuse of children.
A judge told Graves that for a period of just over a year he…

Man, 60, jailed for sexual assaults on young girl
A drunken paedophile who repeatedly abused a young girl after buying her silence with sweets and presents has been jailed for eight years.
Alistair Belt, 60, physically and emotionally harmed the child when he sexually molested her on three occasions when she was aged ten or 11, Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday.
The engineer was under the influence of alcohol when he committed the offences and regularly drank to excess, Judge Neil Davey QC said.
Belt, of Eversley Drive, Holme Wood, Bradford, was convicted after a trial in February of three offences of sexual assault and remanded into custody.
Wearing a striped grey V-necked jumper, he sat impassively in the dock as prosecutor Patricia Doherty applied for a Sexual Offences Prevention Order without limit of time.
It bars Belt from contacting his victim, having any unsupervised contact with…

Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS) are engaged in the widespread bullying and intimidation of benefit claimants in Jobcentres up and down the country.
The evidence can no longer be denied and the union’s leadership must now take steps to educate its members that solidarity is more than just a word on a leaflet during a PCS pay dispute, or else face the accusation of collaborating with the government’s vicious assault on the most economically vulnerable in society under the rubric of austerity. The upsurge in the number of claimants having their benefits sanctioned for increasingly minor infractions correlates to the upsurge in the demand for the services of the nation’s food banks.
This shocking revelation was contained in a report by MPs in January, the result of an investigation by the Work and Pensions Select Committee, which called for an independent review into the rules for…
