Aussie Imam Charged With Marrying 12-Year-Old Girl To 26-Year-Old Man

26-year-old Lebanese Muslim guy moves to Australia in 2013 on a student visa, hooks up with a 12-year-old girl (also Muslim, I assume), and eventually moves to Sydney with the pre-pubescent in tow. In spite of the fact that pre-marital sex is forbidden in Islam, they apparently were doing the deed, and were eventually married by a Pakistan-born imam in early 2014. Since you have to be 18 to get married in Australia, and since Lebanese guy was having sex with a 12-year-old, they're both in a tad bit of trouble. Imam has been charged with "solemnization of a marriage by an unauthorized person." And pedophile hubby is facing "25 counts of sexual intercourse with a child between 10 and 14 years" and is currently sitting in jail awaiting his day in court. The imam received conditional bail and will face the music on April 2nd.

For some reason the parents of the girl have yet to be charged, although they should be.
