Shekh Mohammed Alfu Miah, 59, of Epping Close, was sentenced to two years and four months in prison at Minshull Street Crown Court on Monday 25 June 2018 after a jury found him guilty of three counts of sexual assault by touching. He will also be registered as a sex offender for ten years. The court heard how Miah sexually assaulted a young woman on two separate occasions in Tameside, including once in his car, in the summer of 2016. Around the same time that year he also sexually assaulted another teenager, again in his car in Tameside. Detective Constable Peter Goddard, from GMP’s Tameside Borough, said: “Miah preyed on these innocent teenagers and acted in an utterly deplorable way. “Throughout this investigation and trial he has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, causing the victims further upset. “I would like to commend the bravery of the victims, and it is thanks to them that Miah will face the consequences of his actions.”
