Kalmash Kaur, 43, who sexually assaulted a teenage girl after they consumed cannabis and alcohol at a party has been spared jail.
The court was told how Kalmash Kaur pounced on the 16 year old after meeting her through mutual friends on a night out, it was during this night out that Kalmash invited the group back to her flat in Motherwell, Lanarkshire.
It was back at the flat where drink and drugs were taken. The party took place in 2010, it was during this party, that the teenager complained of feeling unwell and she went to bed. The teenager was then woken by Kaur (who was then aged 35) who then launched a sex attack on her that only stopped when another woman entered the bedroom.
The teenager revealed the incident four years later when her mother challenged her over erratic behaviour. She began seeing a counsellor in 2016 and eventually reported her ordeal to police, leading to Kaur’s arrest.
Kaur had previously admitted indecently assaulting the teenager. At Hamilton sheriff court she was placed under supervision for two years and will be on the sex offenders register for the same period.
Depute fiscal Neil Thomson said: “Since this attack the complainer has suffered severe anxiety and has been attending therapy. She attributes that to the events of that night.”
Sheriff Thomas Millar said: “Offences of this nature normally attract a period of custody. But in your case having read the reports, I’m satisfied this was a one-off incident that has not been repeated.”
