Sutton Paedophile Who Went On The Run Found Guilty

Mezbaha Uddin who went on the run as detectives closed in on him is now facing a long spell in prison after a jury convicted him of a string of child sex offences.

He was arrested by the National Crime Agency in Dover after being found hiding in a lorry destined for France.

The 39-year-old was under investigation by Nottinghamshire Police in relation to a number of incidents between September 2018 and July 2020.

A jury has now found him guilty of 16 child sexual offences.

Canterbury Crown Court heard his arrest followed an allegation of sexual communication with a child in Nottinghamshire in July 2019.

Jurors heard he interacted with a decoy account set up by an online child activist group. 

The group alerted police when he sent indecent images of himself and arranged to meet who he thought was a 14-year-old girl in Mansfield.

Uddin was arrested and his mobile was seized.

Messages from a chatroom website found Uddin, of Outram Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, had attempted to engage in sexual communications with over a dozen underage girls, in some instances with a view to meet up with them.

On other occasions he encouraged girls to engage in sexual activity while he watched.

Uddin will be sentenced on October 22.
