[Justice Walker] has ruled a child molester was rightly given a tougher than normal sentence because his victims were Asian and so suffered more from his crimes. Jamal Muhammed Raheem-ul-Nasir was jailed for seven years at Leeds Crown Court last year for sex attacks on two girls, aged nine and 14. But the paedophile took the case to appeal, with his lawyers complaining that his sentence was unfairly inflated and 'excessive'. Senior judge Mr Justice Walker has now thrown out those arguments after hearing that the victims' families feared they would struggle to find future husbands because of the abuse.
