Algerian Failed Asylum Seeker Raped Woman in Huddersfield

From the Daily Express:

A FAILED asylum seeker living in Britain illegally has been jailed for raping a woman outside a nightclub.

Algerian Abdul Amouz, 19, dragged his 21-year-old victim into an alley after dancing with her at the Tokyo club in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

She told police she had little memory of the attack, which left her with cuts and bruises. But as Amouz fled he dropped his wallet containing his ID.

Despite DNA evidence, he denied he was responsible for the attack on May 9 until moments before his trial at Leeds Crown Court.

Jailing him for four years and nine months, Judge Rodney Grant described him as a serious danger to young women. He is likely to be deported once released.

James Doyle, mitigating, said Amouz had been in the UK for only three months and was very drunk.

Interesting; despite the brutality and seriousness of the crime, he was only jailed for four years. If he's lucky, he could be out in half the time.

Despite the fact he was here illegally and is deemed a serious danger to our young women, he is only likely to be deported; one wonders what he'd have to do to have made it a certainty.

Also, note the mitigation: "he'd only been in the UK for three months and was very drunk."

Does that make it OK then? It really makes you think about what must go on in Algeria if his defence imply that's what he sees as normal, acceptable behaviour.

I wonder if the fact she was a mere infidel had anything to do with it? Just asking.
