"Nasser Khalil has committed very serious crimes"
Primary school teacher Nasser Khalil, aged 49, of Stechford, Birmingham, was jailed for 20 months for having sex chats with a 12-year-old girl who was, in fact, an undercover police officer.
Birmingham Crown Court heard he sent a video of himself working as a teacher and talked about “what he wanted to do with her sexually.”
The prosecutor Paul Spratt said he referred to being naked in bed with the child and sent a £5 voucher so they could message each other.
It was revealed that Khalil worked as a supply teacher.
He spoke with the ‘child’ on six occasions between November 6 and 13, 2019, and his language was “highly sexualised” from the beginning.
Khalil knew the girl was 12 and he talked about various sexual acts.
Mr Spratt explained: “He disclosed he was a primary school teacher. He was plainly excited and aroused and told the girl what he wanted to do with her sexually.”
He said the teacher referred to them being naked in the same bed and asked about her underwear.
Mr Spratt added: “He directed the 12-year-old to YouTube, where there was a short film of him teaching in class in a primary school.
“He indicated communication could take place on email, social media and by mobile phone.”
Khalil went on to imply they could have “full sexual activity” before the conversations ended.
Khalil found out the girl was not a real person when he was arrested on November 14.
He pleaded guilty to sexual communication with a child and attempting to incite a female child aged under 13 to engage in sexual activity.
Balbir Singh, defending, said: “This man has used his teaching skills over the years to help people from disadvantaged backgrounds by tutoring them for no fee.
“Up to November 6 last year he led a good and productive life and was of positive good character but his home life was falling apart.
“Sometimes, when that happens, people seek solace in companionship elsewhere.
“He was using a chatroom and he came across this profile.”
Judge Richard Bond told Khalil:
“It is right to say you made immediate sexual references while you made it plain you were prepared to commit sexual acts.”
“Rather bizarrely you directed her to a video on YouTube. In my judgment, you were trying to put the child at her ease by demonstrating you were a teacher and that you could be trusted.
“The communications you were having with the girl demonstrate you are sexually interested and excited by talking to underage girls.
“You, of all people, would have known the effect upon the child you were communicating with if it had been a real child.”
On January 10, 2020, Khalil was jailed for 20 months.
Birmingham Mail reported that he was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years and was also given a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for 10 years.
Virinder Bains, of the CPS, said: “Nasser Khalil has committed very serious crimes which have been met with the appropriate punishment.
“We will seek to prosecute and protect all children from those who pose a risk to them and who seek to engage in such criminal behaviour.”
