Britain: A black Sudanese immigrant rapist exposed himself to a judge when he was brought before a court to give his plea
Mawawe Ibraham Karam, 28, was due to stand trial accused of raping a 17-year-old in Nottingham city center, after he originally pleaded not guilty. But after exposing himself, he was removed from the Nottingham courtroom and could be heard shouting "I'm guilty, I'm guilty". After pleading guilty, Karam asked Judge Stokes to sentence him that day, repeatedly shouting: "Please judge, please sentence me today, please." He was later brought back before the judge and changed his plea to guilty. Karam was jailed at Nottingham Crown Court for ten years for rape and the theft of the victim's mobile phone. The court heard how Karam dragged a vulnerable girl, 17, into an alleyway and raped her in the early hours of March 25, 2012. Karam left her lying semi-naked in the street, taking her mobile phone with him. She was not found until two hours later after a passer-by heard the girl shouting for help and raised the alarm. Karam, a Sudanese immigrant, was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register and recommended for deportation after serving his sentence. The court previously heard that Karam came to Britain illegally, but had since been given indefinite leave to remain.
