A RAPIST will have his ten-year jail sentence reviewed for being unduly lenient after an application was lodged with the Attorney General.

The chief legal advisor’s office has listed Olawale Hassan’s case for review.

Rapper Hassan was jailed this month for ten years and two months for three counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

The 33-year-old of Falcone Avenue, Grays, was convicted by a jury in September following his attack on a woman in his car outside Genting Casino, in February 2017.

Hassan, also known as “Goldie 1”, was jailed on October 6. But now the case has been submitted to the Attorney General’s office for review.

Any member of the public can ask the Attorney General’s office to examine sentences handed down by crown courts in England and Wales within 28 days of sentencing under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme (ULS).

The Attorney General’s office’s review of Hassan’s case is now in progress, and its verdict remains “under consideration”.

Hassan was with his victim at various nightclubs in Southend on the same night.

He bought her a drink and before accompanying her and her friend to another nightclub.

Throughout the evening he repeatedly asked for her number and asked if she wanted to go back to his hotel room, which she rejected on each occasion.

At closing time, the victim was promised by Hassan that he would get her home safely. Her friend had left with her partner.

Initially, Hassan drove in the wrong direction along the seafront and has smoked cannabis in the car. After turning the car around, the victim realised that she was not safe.

Following his sentence, his victim described Hassan as “evil and delusional” and praised police for helping her throughout the criminal proceedings.

As he was taken down to the cells, Hassan described the court as “racist” and that he was “an innocent black man”.

He will serve at least half of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
