A father-of-two who drove around asking children on the way to school if they wanted to have sex with him for £100 has been jailed.
Jahirul Miah, 41, had a packet of condoms in his Renault Megane and was high on cocaine when he approached school children asking them if they wanted to “have some fun” for cash.
Miah then asked a woman who was out jogging if she wanted a threesome with his girlfriend when the schoolgirls rejected his advances.
Liverpool Crown Court heard the pervert then said to a mum with a baby: “I’ve got some charlie, do you want to have some fun?”
The court heard Miah got out of his vehicle to ask a 14-year-old for directions on May 16 this year.
Judge Watson said: “Having used that line to stop her and get her attention, you proposed her, saying ‘do you want to have some fun?’
“She was terrified. She walked away quickly and then made a panicked phone call, which every mother must dread receiving.”
About 50 minutes later Miah approached a 13-year-old at a bus stop outside a school.
He asked her about bus times to start a conversation and then said to the girl
“you’re gorgeous, would you like to make some money?” and offered her cash for sex.
Judge Watson said: “She was extremely concerned and frightened.”
She and a boy alerted a teacher, who ran outside and took down part of Miah’s registration as he drove away.
At around 9.00am he asked a third schoolgirl about a petrol station whether she would get in his car, but did not mention sex.
A short while after that he asked a woman who was out jogging if she would like to have “a bit of fun” with his girlfriend, before offering her cocaine.
When he was arrested a search of his phone revealed he had an interest in schoolgirls and online searches for “teen babes” and “Lolita”.
Miah, who started crying when Martine Snowdon, prosecuting, described his victim’s distress, was found guilty of two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.
Paul Treble, defending, said “mercifully nothing physical took place” and that his client was a “family man” of previous good character.
Judge Watson said Miah was a dangerous offender and sentenced him to four years in jail, with an extended two years on licence.
He must serve at least two thirds of the four years behind bars and will only be released if a parole board decides it is safe.
