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.
