MP Imran Ahmad Khan is found GUILTY of sex attack on 15-year-old boyApril 11, 2022
A TORY MP has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy after forcing him to drink gin at a party in 2008.
Imran Ahmad Khan, 48, MP for Wakefield in West Yorkshire, dragged the teenager upstairs, pushed him onto a bed and asked him to watch pornography before the attack at a house in Staffordshire, a court heard.
The victim, now in his late 20s, told a jury he was left feeling "scared, vulnerable, numb, shocked and surprised" after Khan touched his feet and legs, coming within "a hair's breadth" of his privates, as he tried to sleep in a top bunkbed.
Khan, who is gay and Muslim, denied sexual assault.
He claimed he only touched the Catholic teenager's elbow when he "became extremely upset" after a conversation about his confused sexuality.
But the MP, who has been suspended by the Conservative Party, was today found guilty at Southwark Crown Court.
A jury took around five hours to deliberate.
The judge, Mr Justice Baker, said he will sentence Khan on a later date.
