A British man who traveled to Florida so he could have sex with an underage girl and then raise an incest family was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Monday.
Shuhel Mahboob Ali, 40, made contact online last year with an undercover investigator posing as the father of a 13-year-old girl.
The Daily Mail reported that Ali told the agent how he wanted to “settle down with a girl and raise a couple of daughters for ‘the lifestyle,’” according to the criminal complaint.
From January to April 2013, Ali corresponded with the undercover agent via the Internet, describing to him in graphic detail what he would like to do their fictitious children.
He said that “once the mid-wife left” he would begin to sexually assault their daughter.
According to court records obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, Ali said, “When you start with very, very, very young, you can mold them to believe anything and do anything you see.”
Ali said he wanted to raise a “daughters-only” family.
He told the undercover agent he would take the Florida teen back to the United Kingdom, and “begin to train her sexually and prepare her for a family.”
Ali traveled from London to Sanford in April, when he met the undercover agent.
Agents from the Department of Homeland Security and local sheriff’s deputies arrested Ali near Titusville. He was taken into custody in North Brevard County.
Police found two hooded face masks bondage tape, condoms and cameras in his bag. They also discovered child pornography on his laptop.
Ali pleaded guilty to enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity.
“It is truly unimaginable that monsters exist and walk among us with the purpose of victimizing our most precious citizens,” Sheriff Wayne Ivey said at the time of his arrest.
“I want this message to be absolutely crystal clear: We will use every lawful resource we have in our possession to find and remove you from society if you try to harm a child, no matter where you may be on this planet.”
