A shopkeeper who raped a pregnant woman then offered her cash has been jailed for five years.
On Monday, Mohammed Mourini was sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow.
The 72-year-old had earlier been convicted of pouncing on the mum-to-be at a shop known as AB Cave in Edinburgh’s South Clerk Street in April 2017.
Mourini was also found guilty of sexually assaulting a foreign student at his home in the capital’s Cumnor Crescent in November of that year.
Jurors at the trial in Edinburgh last month heard how both women were in their 20s.
Mourini kissed the rape victim – who was five months pregnant – pushed her onto a couch before forcing himself on her.
The court heard Mourini then tried to give her £20.
The sex attack on the student saw Mourini grope the young woman.
He later contacted her claiming to be sorry and that he had not meant to harm her.
The woman sent him an email stating: “You should not have done that.”
It emerged after the trial Mourini already had convictions for sex offences against children.
Lady Haldane told Mourini: “The women suffered appalling treatment at your hands.”
Mourini was sentenced to five years for the rape with a further 12 months for the later sexual assault. The terms will run concurrently.
Mourini, who denied the charges, was also put on the sex offenders list.
