Child rapist gets 15 years

A MARRIED man who repeatedly raped a young girl has been jailed for 15 years.

Ejaz Akhtar, 46, of Anglesey Road, Burton, subjected the girl to a sustained period of sexual abuse which lasted for more than two years, beginning when she was just 13.

Akhtar was jailed at Stafford Crown Court after being arrested following his return from Pakistan. He had left Britain for the country shortly before his trial was due to begin.

The court heard the full and graphic account of Akhtar’s encounters with the child, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and how the abuse escalated to the point of rape.
