BREAKING: Arshid Hussain guilty of sexual assault on girl (13)
Arshid Hussain

CONVICTED child abuser Arshid Hussain has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a girl 14 years ago.

The jury took just 38 minutes to find him guilty of forcing the 13-year-old girl to perform a sex act on him in his car in 2003 when he was aged 27.

Hussain (42) has been absent from the Sheffield Crown Court trial and will be sentenced tomorrow.

He is already serving a 35-year sentence after being found guilty in February 2016 at the same court of 23 child sexual exploitation offences including rape, assault, indecent assault and conspiracy to rape.
