34 Year-Old Who Married A 14-Year-Old Girl Jailed

A man who married an underage girl in an Islamic ceremony in Melbourne, has been sentenced to 18 months jail, but will walk free by next month given time already served.

Mohammad Shakir was 34 years-old when he married the girl at a Noble Park mosque in December 2016. 

Shakir, who pleaded guilty marrying an underage person, sobbed as the sentence was handed down in the County Court of Victoria on Thursday. 

Given time already served, Shakir will be able to walk from jail in 13 days and must be of good behaviour for six months.
