A BRIERLEY Hill sex pest has been told by a judge to put his life back on the rails.

Wolverhampton Crown Court heard Aziz Rehman, aged 28, carried out a sex attack on a young woman travelling on a bus.

Judge Martin Walsh said the incident was not the most serious of its type but added: "It must have been extremely frightening and distressing for this young woman."

He said Rehman had a previous conviction for a similar offence on his record and went on: "It is perfectly obvious to me that you require some support and treatment.

"I am satisfied your personal interests and those of the public at large will best be served by the imposition of the community order."

The judge said Rehman would be able to get the treatment he needed to put his life back onto the rails and "the public will get the protection they deserve".

Rehman, of Talbot Street, admitted sexual assault and he was further placed on supervision for three years and told he must register as a sex offender for the next five years.
