Trevor Meegan, defending, said Hussain is still a young man, trying to improve himself.
He added: “He is Somalian and been here for 10 years and has had jobs as a warehouse worker.
“He lives with his parents and has taken a college course at Birmingham College. ”Gosh, aren’t we lucky to have this man adding to the UK’s rich diversity?
“He doesn’t accept his guilt but accepts the conviction against him.”Hmmm, Ched Evans gets a lot of stick for ‘not accepting his guilt’ in the progressive press – can I expect anguished CiF columns about this chap too?
Mr Recorder Kelly added: “You became friends with Miss Ahmed and were a regular visitor to her home.
“This was a terrible thing to do to someone who showed you nothing but friendship and hospitality.
“It looks at the moment as if you are embarking on a life where you are in and out of courts and prison.
“I urge you to reflect on what you are going to do with your life while you are in prison.”Let’s hope the answer is ‘Go back to Somalia’…
