‘My child was the product of pure evil,’ says woman made pregnant by Rotherham sex abuser at age 12
A woman who was sexually exploited by a number of men in Rotherham from the age of 11 looked on as five of her abusers were jailed.
The woman, who became one of Britain’s youngest mothers at 12 years old as a result of the abuse, was one of two young girls groomed by the men between 1999 and 2001.
The victim, in a statement read to the court, said:
“There’s evil and truly evil people in the world. I feel my child was the product of pure evil.”
There were emotional and chaotic scenes at Sheffield Crown Court after two of the defendants shouted “Allahu Akbar” as they were led from the dock after they were handed their sentences.
Six men, three of whom were brothers, were handed sentences totalling more than 80 years.
Professor Alexis Jay’s report, in 2014, provoked a wave of shock when she described how more than 1,400 children had been groomed, trafficked and raped in Rotherham over a 16-year period.
