HAMTRAMCK, Mich. – All charges against Ibrahim Aljahim have been dropped.

Aljahim, 37, is a school employee at Hamtramck’s Oakland International Academy. The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office said he was working as a student liaison at the school when police were contacted about an assault in September.

An 18-year-old male student with special needs testified that Aljahim took him from a classroom Sept. 18, got him into a car, drove off school grounds and sexually assaulted him in the car.

Aljahim was charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct first degree, under multiple variables for a mentally disabled victim and that the defendant was in a position of authority over the victim. However, on Thursday, at the conclusion of his preliminary examination, Judge Alexis G. Krot of the 31st District Court dismissed all charges against Aljahim.

“The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office will evaluate the preliminary examination transcript to determine whether an appeal will be filed in this case,” said Assistant Prosecutor Maria Miller.

Aljahim is also a well-known Democratic political activist in the community.
