Bahmani Ahmadi groomed numerous children in order to abuse them sexually over a number of years and was eventually caught by police officers using an assumed online identity. He was originally sentenced in Newcastle Crown Court in September to 4 years and 6 months imprisonment.

The Solicitor General, Robert Buckland QC MP, referred the sentence under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme. Speaking after the case today he said:

I referred this unduly lenient sentence to the Court of Appeal as Ahmadi groomed a large number of victims over a lengthy period of time with no regard to their vulnerability, simply his own sexual gratification.

Im pleased that the Court of Appeal has increased his sentence to six and a half years imprisonment and hope this sends a clear message to anyone caught grooming and abusing children you will face a significant time in jail.
