LEICESTER: A Leicestershire Police officer who sexually assaulted a teenage girl has been sacked by the force. Pc Majud Hussain, a former detective and firearms officer, was jailed last month after he was convicted of abusing his 17-year-old victim.

The 41-year-old was jailed for seven years and placed on the sex offenders register for the rest of his life, Leicester and Mercury has reported.

The conclusion of the trial at Nottingham Crown Court cleared the way for Leicestershire Police to hold a gross misconduct hearing, which took place at force headquarters, in Enderby, last Thursday. He was dismissed in his absence. His pay had been suspended immediately after his conviction.

Chief Constable Simon Cole, who chaired the hearing, said: “Hussain has acted disgracefully, bringing shame on himself. He has discredited the force and there is no room for people behaving in such a way to be working with us. Hussain has been dismissed without notice and his pay was stopped last month when he was convicted at Nottingham Crown Court.”

The trial heard that Hussain drove his victim to a secluded area near Stapleford, Nottinghamshire, where he carried out the assault.

After jailing him for seven years, Judge James Sampson also ordered Hussain, of Wilford Crescent East, Nottingham, to sign the sex offenders register for life and be on a sexual harm prevention order indefinitely.

The judge told Hussain: “You have shown absolutely no remorse whatsoever.“You are clearly a disgrace to the uniform of police officers and you are obviously unfit to be a police constable.”
