Man already in prison for sex crimes jailed again for attempted rape of a young teenage girl

A Huddersfield man already jailed for 17 years as part of a major investigation into child sexual abuse in Kirklees has been convicted of attempted rape between 2004 and 2007 and will serve an extra two years in prison.

A man already jailed for 17 years as part of a major investigation into child sexual abuse in Kirklees has been convicted of more offending.

Nasarat Hussain, 33,  from Huddersfield, was jailed for an additional two years at Leeds Crown Court on 2 March, after pleading guilty to an attempted rape offence detected as part of Kirklees District Police’s Operation Tendersea investigation.

Hussain had already been serving a 17-year jail sentence after being convicted as part of the first phase of Operation Tendersea convictions in 2018.

Nasarat Hussain will serve an extra two years after pleading guilty to attempted rape.

In this latest case, he pleaded guilty to the attempted rape of a then-teenage girl in the Huddersfield area between 2004 and 2007.

He will serve the new sentence in addition to his previous 17-year jail term and was also made the subject of an Indefinite Restraining Order.

Operation Tendersea has been a major investigation into the non-recent sexual abuse of teenage girls in the Huddersfield area between 2004-2011 and resulted in hundreds of years of jail sentences being given to convicted abusers.

DCI Ian Thornes of Kirklees District Police, said: “We welcome the sentencing of Hussain today for the attempted rape of a young female victim in 2004.

“This sentence will be served on top of the lengthy jail term he has been imprisoned for since 2018 and it will be a number of years before he is even considered for release.”

He added: “Hussain and other men also convicted in this investigation were responsible for the truly dreadful exploitation of vulnerable young females over a number of years.

“We hope the significant sentences handed down by the courts serve as a stark warning of the punishments waiting for those who commit such dreadful crimes and continue to bring comfort to victims.

“Their courage in coming forward to seek justice is allowing the police and CPS to identify and take action against these warped and dangerous men, and we continue to urge victims who may not have come forwards to do so.

“All reports will be thoroughly investigated, no matter when the offending occurred, and every effort will be made to seek justice for victims.”
