Man who had sexual relations with Brighton child he met on Facebook jailed for 32 months

The Argus: SEX PEST: Fahim Uddin SEX PEST: Fahim Uddin

A man has been jailed after he met a child on Facebook and went onto have sexual relations with her.

Now Sussex Police are warning young people and their families to be aware of who they are talking to online. 

Jobless Fahim Uddin, 21, of Melrose Close, Hollingdean, appeared at Brighton Crown Court on Friday, December 13, where he was jailed for 32 months.

He had previously pleaded guilty to five charges, four of having sexual activity with a child and one of arranging the commission of a child sex offence.

Uddin was also required to register as a sex offender for life and was also served with a Sexual Prevention Order (SOPO) for life, which severely restricts his access to computers and children.

Detective Constable Tracey Dixon said: "The victim, who lives Brighton, was 14 and has learning difficulties, when Uddin met her on Facebook on Christmas Day last year.

"He then met her a couple of days later and engaged in sexual activity with her.

"There followed more contact on Facebook and Skype and he arranged to meet her again.

"However fortunately her parents found out about this and contacted us, which enabled us to arrest Uddin within days.

"This case serves as a reminder to young people, and their families in particular, to be very careful about Internet contacts.

"Don't get involved without making sure the person has a legitimate reason for being in contact."

Why waste time with that? A summary execution would do the trick.

I've read this three times, since it was published, in the hope that the jail term of 32 months was a typo. But no, it would seem to be correct. She was 14 & has learning difficulties. That, in my opinion must be dealt with as rape. What an absolute disgrace, he will be out in 18mths. Also he should be tagged & on a curfew for ten years minimum. At least the Argus has published his ugly mug for locals to recognise when he comes out.

I'd like to know more about his background because simply sending these perverts to prison - should have been longer by the way - doesn't address the issue of why we have so many, mainly men, grooming and exploiting children. Mind you, we only ever put a sticking plaster on a problem and never delve deeper, mainly because the truth would be too inconvenient for most folk!

I honestly cannot understand why castration is not an option in cases like this.

There wouldn't be much chance of a repeat offense.

14? That is not a 'child'. Sure, she is still considered a minor by today's standards, but she is certainly old enough to fall in love (not to mention biologically ready to bear children).

Learning difficulties? That could mean anything. Look up Albert Einstein on wikipedia and you will discover that his teachers described him as having 'learning difficulties'.

A 21 year old man being attracted to a 14 year old girl is hardly crime of the century (they never actually met). His previous charges are a little worrying, but this case is not even comparable to a much older man, let's say in his 40s or 50s, preying on a 9 year old child.

This is a perfect example of fear mongering, and an attempt to sensationalize what in reality is a young man expressing his natural and healthy desires. Articles like this belittle cases of REAL child abuse.

It states in the article he engaged in sexual activity with the minor. So yes they did meet. How would you feel if this was your underage child?

I apologize. Must have misread, as I was under the impression they hadn't met in real life.

To answer your question, if I had a daughter of 14, and she had a relationship with an older guy, and she really wanted to be with him, I would have to meet with him first before saying yes or no. In private, I would threaten to kill him if he attempts to have sex with her before marriage, just to judge whether he really loves my daughter or not.

I personally don't like all this sneaky online business behind the parents backs, but that's just how young people are today. If young girls are talking to older guys on the internet, surely the parents are partly to blame for giving them unlimited access. And at 14, a girl would have a pretty good idea of what she is doing (and what she is looking for).

Liberal nonsense. This creep will be at it again at the first opportunity and deserves a long sentence and beatings he won't forget as a proper deterrent to him and others.

You can't discredit common sense and rational thinking by labeling what I say under some vague political ideology which you disagree with.

As for what punishment this man should get (if any), I cannot say, as I refuse to condemn anyone based on the sort of biased reporting (rubbish) being churned out by the mainstream press when it comes to these sorts of cases (which they know always draws a lot of interest). But based on his age and the girl's age alone, I would say this case is not even worth reporting on. i.e. It's Nothing.

So you think a 21 year old man and a 14 year old girl is acceptable? Nice one.
The parents clearly didn't think so, therefore I'll have to trust their judgement on that. But I am not ruling out the possibility that 2 people matching that same age gap could have a healthy relationship (I am not suggesting that the older person should attempt to violate age of consent laws). If the parents are OK with them seeing each other, and the 14 year old was mature enough to handle a relationship, then I honestly don't think I would object.

Now this is the part where I really earn my name. Maybe an older boyfriend could be beneficial. If he was mature and had a stable life, knowing what he wants out of life, he could potentially make his younger partner very happy, and would be responsible enough to not get her pregnant. A lot of teenage boys treat sex like some kind of point scoring game, and will tell girls anything just to get one extra point - with no regard to the emotional damage they are causing (or to potential unplanned pregnancies). On the other hand, an older guy would have most likely passed through this phase and reached a level of maturity where he is more focused on having a stable relationship.

(having said all that, I pity any man willing to put up with the sort of drama teenage girls are notorious for... such a man would have to be a serious masochist.)

As a closing point. It has taken millions of years for you to get here. You have had countless ancestors stretching all the way back to the stone age and beyond. At many points during the long history of your bloodline, it is guaranteed that many of your female ancestors gave birth before the age of 14.

At a school I used to teach at 14 year old girls were often picked up by their "Boyfriends" driving their cars.
Anything between 18-25 years old.
Tell the parent/s and you're told to mind your own business.
I'm pretty sure some of these blokes were sleeping with the single mums as well as the daughters.

You ban God or any mention of His name, you call right wrong, you remove disciplne from schools, you make prison anything but a place of punishment.
you allow the most depraved images accessible at the touch of a button, and then when a young girl with a learning disability is sexually abused you sentence the pervert to 32 months in a holiday camp and wonder where the poor boy went wrong, and how we must have all let the poor soul down.

Because sexual depravity hasn't always existed in every society, no matter how liberal or conservative, right? Give me an example of a time and place during human history when there wasn't all kinds of 'depravity' going on, which didn't conform to the ideal of a married man and woman making love in the missionary position with the lights turned off.

And this 14 year old teenager suffers from such severe learning difficulties, yet she still managed to use a computer to communicate with someone online and arrange a meeting in real life, behind her parents backs. I bet a carer pushed her to the meeting point in a wheelchair and helped translate her slurred incomprehensible speech to her would-be rapist.

This paper is so biased and proves how the media can influence anyone or anything. The article fails to point out that Fahim also has learning disabilities and was 19 when this incident occurred and 21 now, fails to mention the girl is now 16.. It also fails to mention that she lived and worked nearby to where he was working and he did not 'lure' her on Facebook, they met in person before and used Facebook to keep in contact. The learning disability the other girl has is dyslexia.. Learning disability could be anything. Branding this person a paedophile is harsh, many girls have boyfriends that age. He was simply a teen in love and her parents weren't having it. Him having learning disabilities and the mind of a child couldn't fight his case. And unfortunately has had this label given for life. Oh one more thing, this paper fails to mention the background that could Fahim also be a victim of sexual abuse? No, as no one seems to care about this boy.

His background? A boy who was 19 at the time and the girl is now 16. This boy also has a more severe learning disability which this paper fails to mention which went undetected for years. This boy is also a victim of child sexual abuse, this case isn't he was a 19 year old with a girlfriend. Don't a lot of girls that age have boyfriends that age?

A 21 year old man being attracted to a 14 year old girl is hardly crime of the century (they never actually met). His previous charges are a little worrying, but this case is not even comparable to a much older man, let's say in his 40s or 50s, preying on a 9 year old child.

This is a perfect example of fear mongering, and an attempt to sensationalize what in reality is a young man expressing his natural and healthy desires. Articles like this belittle cases of REAL child abuse.
Exactly, please read my other comments. He was 19 at the time and 21 now, they've made it out as if a 21 year old lured a 14 year old. He is 21 now and she is 16 now. The media are so biased and forget to mention he has learning disabilities and is a victim of a severe child sexual abuse case and not this case where a teenage boy was with another teen a few years younger. Heck in America you sleep with someone under 18 over 16 you're a pedophile, where do you draw the line?

5. He did not 'lure' her on FB.. They had met many times before in person as she was living and helping out working nearby to where he was.

1. He was 19 at the time and she was 14, how common is that? I know it was common when I was that age. She is 16 now and he is 21 now it was wasn't a 21 year old 'luring' a 14 year old.
2. Fahim also has learning disabilities more severe than this girl. This went undetected for years which everyone who meets him agrees he has the mind of a child.
3. The girls learning disability is dyslexia.
4. Paper fails to mention Fahim is a victim of child sexual abuse, by someone much much older, do you really think he intended to molest her? No they were in a relationship where an unhappy dad found out and did not like Fahim.
5. He did not 'lure' her on FB.. They had met many times before in person as she was living and helping out working nearby to where he was. This has all been blown out of context to a poor boy whose life is now ruined for being in love and doing what everyone else that age is doing, just go to any school after its finished and you'll see 14 year old girls being picked up by their boyfriends with cars. Why is this not sexual abuse or rape or why is no one suspecting anything that could happen once these girls jump in these cars? It sure happened when I was that age but no one batted a lid. This boy is just a kid and if you meet him you'll know that too.

14? That is not a 'child'. Sure, she is still considered a minor by today's standards, but she is certainly old enough to fall in love (not to mention biologically ready to bear children).

Learning difficulties? That could mean anything. Look up Albert Einstein on wikipedia and you will discover that his teachers described him as having 'learning difficulties'.

A 21 year old man being attracted to a 14 year old girl is hardly crime of the century (they never actually met). His previous charges are a little worrying, but this case is not even comparable to a much older man, let's say in his 40s or 50s, preying on a 9 year old child.

This is a perfect example of fear mongering, and an attempt to sensationalize what in reality is a young man expressing his natural and healthy desires. Articles like this belittle cases of REAL child abuse.
Exactly, please read my other comments. He was 19 at the time and 21 now, they've made it out as if a 21 year old lured a 14 year old. He is 21 now and she is 16 now. The media are so biased and forget to mention he has learning disabilities and is a victim of a severe child sexual abuse case and not this case where a teenage boy was with another teen a few years younger. Heck in America you sleep with someone under 18 over 16 you're a pedophile, where do you draw the line?
I had no idea. Wow, what the argus is doing in this article is disgusting. But the way people are just calling for his death without caring to learn the real facts is even more disgusting. Psychopaths.
