Rapist who groomed teenager via Facebook is jailed

A man who groomed a teenager via Facebook and then raped her has been sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Imtiaz Baig sentenced to 16 years in prison for rape

Imtiaz Baig made contact with the 16-year-old through social media and spent months messaging her trying to arrange a meeting. He told her he was a businessman, who rented out prestige car and helicopters.

The 37-year-old tried to meet her on several occasions but she was wary of his motives and did not turn up. Finally he managed to persuade her to meet him at a hotel in Newark on August 29 2015.

He plied her with alcoholic drinks and raped her.

Baig, of Straight Drove, Farcet, near Peterborough, was convicted following a trial in January and sentenced yesterday at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

This case underlines the lengths that dangerous individuals like Baig will go to in order to entice a child to engage in sexual activity.

I would like to pay tribute to the courage of the victim. Despite the trauma of the incident and the effect of the alcohol he had persuaded her to drink, she had the presence of mind to take his clothing and other belongings to prevent him from fleeing the hotel.

Her brother, whom she had already arranged to meet to pick her up, sensibly took her to Newark Police Station where excellent work by the officer who met ensured that crucial evidence, including the telephone correspondence between Baig and the girl, was quicky obtained.
