Relative of Rotherham child sex gang member uses father’s conviction as mitigation for dangerous driving charge

The relative of a man jailed over the Rotherham grooming scandal has pleaded with a judge to spare him a prison sentence for dangerous driving, after he claimed the backlash to his conviction had caused him emotional trauma.

During a sentencing at Sheffield Crown Court today Shiraz Ali, of Clough Road, Masborough fell to be sentenced for a string of motoring offences, including dangerous driving; relating to a police chase that saw him drive along busy pavements and mount roundabouts.

Defending, Michael Collins, told the court that since Ali’s 54-year-old father Ajeed Ali, also of Clough Lane, Masborough, had been jailed for rape in March last year as part of his involvement in a Rotherham child sex gang, that it had fallen to him to act as the ‘father’ in his family.

    He deserves much more prison time for these offences. How does he act as the father for his family? Asking for more benefits ? Presumably he is unemployed / unemployable ?

    lock him up …. no excuses for what he did .
