Former police officer sentenced for child sexual offences

A student police officer who sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl has been jailed for seven years and seven months.

Haider Siddique, 22, was sentenced yesterday at Birmingham Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a child.

Siddique, who was a student police officer at West Midlands Police at the time of the offence, met his victim after contacting her online.

His offences came to light after a bus driver saw him in March 2022 behaving inappropriately with the child and reported the matter to police. Lauranne Middleton of the CPS said:

“Haider Siddique grossly abused his position of trust as a student police officer and as an adult to meet and sexually abuse a child.

“The overwhelming file of evidence presented to the court left Siddique with no option but plead guilty to his appalling crimes and reflects how seriously the Crown Prosecution Service views this type of offending.

“We are grateful for the bravery displayed by the young victim and the actions of the bus driver who reported Siddique’s inappropriate behaviour, which led to the police investigation and prosecution of this man.”
