Six men who were members of a child sex gang have been jailed for a total of 80 years for abusing girls as young as 11, one of who became pregnant at the age of 12 after being groomed with alcohol and drugs.
One of the woman who was sexually exploited by a number of the men from the age of 11 and became pregnant at the age of 12 sat in court and watched as five of her abusers were given sentences of up to 20 years.
In total, 6 members of the grooming gang were jailed by the judge after the court heard details of how the men groomed two young girls in South Yorkshire 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.”
Judge Wright paid tribute to the woman, who was sitting just a few feet away from her in the packed courtroom.
The judge said: “As a result of what happened to her, her childhood and adolescence was taken from her.
“She remarkably transformed her life from thereon, putting her own child first.
“Hers is a tale of the most astonishing dedication and bravery.”
