Dilan Amin of Peartree Road, Derby, has today (Friday, June 22) been sentenced to 12 years in jail.
In April he pleaded guilty to four charges of sexual activity with a child with penetration, sexual assault of a child and sexual assault.
In September last year he was found guilty by a jury of three charges which were causing/inciting prostitution for gain, paying for sexual services of a girl between 13-15 years-old and the sexual assault of a child. The seven charges were against five of the victims.
Mr Amin was arrested in January 2017 when the investigation began following reports of child sexual exploitation (CSE) against seven victims, aged between 12 and 17.
Detective Inspector Andy Jones who led the investigation said: “This investigation involved vulnerable girls that Dilan Amin preyed on. The investigation and subsequent proceedings has been a difficult time for the girls involved and I would like to praise their bravery throughout.”
Nathalie Walters, Chief Executive of Safe and Sound said: “We have been providing support to a number of the victims affected, helping them to move forward in their lives. The young women have showed amazing bravery and strength of character to come forward and speak about what has happened to them.
“This case illustrates once again that child sexual abuse and exploitation will not be tolerated, and offenders will be brought to justice.”
Four years of Mr Amin's sentence was for a robbery that took place last year in Derby.
Anyone that wishes to report any concerns related to CSE can ring Derbyshire Constabulary on 101.
