An Oldham man is jailed for four years and 10 months for sexual activity with a child

Faisal Khan (18/03/2003) of the Chadderton area of Oldham, was yesterday (Monday 26 June 2023) sentenced to four years 10 months after being found guilty of three counts of sexual activity with a child and supplying cannabis to a 15-year-old girl.

He will also be on the sex offenders register for life and was handed an indefinite restraining order against the victim as well as a sexual harm prevention order (SHPO).

The court heard how Khan, 19-years-old at the time of the offences, had met and groomed the teenage girl, who was 14, over Snapchat between January and October 2022.

He would pick the youngster up in different vehicles and engage in sexual activity.

He would then provide her with cannabis, alcohol and sometimes nitrous oxide balloons.

The victim described not knowing whether he was her boyfriend or not but that the relationship had turned from something “cute” to “sour”.
