A man who sexually abused two carers who were caring for his disabled son has been jailed.
Ghulam Hussan had trouble looking after his son at night and hired someone to help him sleep at night.
Manchester Crown Court heard the 45-year-old had assaulted two women within the space of six months, leaving them significantly distressed.
One victim told jurors her whole life changed mentally, emotionally and physically after Hussan attacked her.
On a visit in November 2019, he offered one of them to help her with a massage. During the act, he touched her sexually.
Months later, in April 2020, the father massaged and molested a second caregiver as well. She immediately reported him to the police, but he denied any wrongdoing.
After a court hearing, Hussan was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault and one penetrative assault.
The presiding judge and clerk, Andrew Long, summed up the case: “For years you were your son’s primary caregiver.” He is disabled and relies on you.
“With that, you’ve got caretakers who look after your son overnight while you sleep.”
Mr Long stressed he had “no doubt” that the victims felt sorry for Hussan and sympathized with his position.
The court heard that in the first incident, the defendant removed an article of clothing from the waist up and sexually touched the caretaker, even though he knew she was uncomfortable doing so.
Less than six months later, he did the same with another caregiver.
“Then in May you stopped her again, texted her and touched her naked body [a sex act]’ the judge continued.
“You were convicted after a trial and a parole report described you as having engaged in sexually predatory conduct.”
“They pose a high risk to the public, especially female carers.” They have not admitted their guilt, nor have they expressed regret or remorse.
“In this case there are three victims, two are those who abused you and the other is your son.’ He relies on you to take care of him.’
Hussan, of Alfred Street, Bury, was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault and one penetrative assault.
He was sentenced to 21 months in prison and 10 years on the sex offender register.
The court heard social services have a plan in place to ensure his son receives ongoing care while he is in custody.
