UK: Court hears plea that female paedophile should be let free as she is a practising Muslim

(England) 43-year-old Raheelah Dar has been jailed for 7 years for grooming and sexually abusing a minor over 20 years. However, her peccadillos came back to haunt her when her victim reported her to the police and Dar found herself in a court of law on charges of being a paedophile.

In his final statement, her defence lawyer Alison Pryor asked that Dar be spared jail as (and I quote:)
“Because of the context under which this offending took place, my client is a practicing Muslim, the shame that this has brought and will bring on her family cannot be underestimated. It is something that would not be found in a more ordinary case of this type. The effect that a sentence would have is less than the effect that the conviction had on the community.”
Thankfully, the judge was having none of this PC clap trap and he sent her down for 7 years.
