Adil Rashid, an 18-year-old Muslim man, met a thirteen-year-old girl on Facebook last year. After texting her for two months, they met in Nottingham. Rashid proceeded to rape the girl and was subsequently arrested.
In his defense, Rashid claimed that he simply "did not know" it was illegal to rape minors. Rashid stated that "he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless," and thus consent was not necessary.
He further argued that the thirteen-year-old had "tempted" and "seduced" him in person, leading to his rape of her.
He added, "Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters."
Why he would say this and get rid of jail time is anyone's guess.
Update: It is not immediately apparent if the rape was statutory or forced.
