AN AFGHAN teenager and former asylum seeker training to be an interpreter for the British Army has been jailed after meeting a Potteries schoolgirl on Facebook and getting her pregnant.


Asif Ghanbari was dumped at Stafford Services after coming to the UK on the back of a lorry in 2008 and started a new life in Stoke-on-Trent.


The 19-year-old then used a false name – Jack Nelson – to meet a 13-year-old girl on Facebook.


He took her on dates in Hanley and Newcastle, had sex with her 17 times and got her pregnant – when she was 14 – before she had an abortion.
