On Tuesday 5 April a “vile predator” was sentenced to 3 months behind bars and placed on the sex offenders register for 7 years after he was found guilty of attempted sexual assault.
Khairul Ehsan, aged 43 of Navigation Way, Hull appeared at Hull Crown Court on Tuesday 5 April for sentencing after pleading not guilty to the offence.
The court heard how whilst working as a taxi driver, Mr Ehsan provide his personal contact details to a customer.
Struggling to get home and in need of safe transportation, the woman later rang Khairul who then abused his position of trust and made sexual advances towards her.
Detective Sergeant Luke Albison said: “The courage and bravery that this victim has shown throughout the entirety of this investigation has been amazing.
“I hope the outcome at court this week will provide her with some closure, reassured by the knowledge that this vile predator has been sentenced for his crime against her.
“I would like to provide reassurance to anyone who may have suffered sexual assault, if you come to us we will listen to and support you and act against those responsible.
“If you have been the victim of sexual assault, there are various ways you can report it to the police. You can speak to the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously, or you can report directly through our 101 number, or 999 in an emergency.
“You will be listened to, we will work with you and we will continue to take action against offenders.”
