British court convicts six men in Rotherham child sex abuse case

Six men were were jailed by a British court on Thursday for sexually abusing two minors who they drugged with alcohol and cannabis, BBC reported.

One of the minors was 11 years old when the assaults began. She became pregnant at age 12. The other girl was 13 years old at the time of the assault.

The crimes took place between 1999 and 2001 in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

Judge Sarah Wright, commenting on a DNA analysis of defendant Amjad Ali, said the results showed he was “60 million times more likely responsible” for impregnating his 13-year-old victim rather than an “unknown male”.

The judge told the defendent that she had “no hesitation” in concluding that Ali had sexual intercourse with the girl while she was heavily intoxicated, so much so “that she was unable to remember you”.

In an impact statement read to the court, the victim said: “There’s evil and truly evil people in the world. I feel my child was the product of pure evil. I was drawn into a world of fear, rape and horrific abuse, I lost my childhood at the hands of those men.”

Two of the defendants shouted “Allahu Akbar” as they were escorted after sentencing.

One of the victims shouted back “justice is served” as police moved the convicts into the public gallery.
