A 33-year-old man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for raping an 11-year-old girl.
Shamol Miah, of Little Carter Lane in Mansfield, appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on 29 January 2019 having pleaded guilty to raping a child under the age of 13.
Miah approached his victim in Mansfield town centre in May last year and they exchanged mobile numbers. They chatted briefly later that evening before he arranged to pick her up from her house at 4am. He then took her to a secluded location and raped her in his car.
It was reported to the police with the offender only being known as 'Adam' but officers were able to pin Miah to the offences as a result of CCTV enquiries, phone work and DNA evidence.
As well as the prison sentence, he was also given a ten-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and placed on the Sex Offender's register for life.
