Five men sexually exploited ‘damaged’ 15-year-old girl in Rochdale8 Nov 2013
Five men sexually exploited the “profound vulnerability” of a “damaged” 15-year-old girl in Rochdale, it can be reported today.
The victim, now aged 20, gave evidence against the defendants in two trials.
Many of her abusers plied the troubled teenager with vodka and cannabis before committing their offences, which took place in 2008 and 2009, Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court heard.
The majority of the defendants were first arrested last year after the grim portrayal of a largely Pakistani-heritage child sex ring preying on white girls in the town, emerged into the public domain in a separate trial at Liverpool Crown Court.
