Nine Asian Muslim men guilty of grooming white schoolgirls for sex after plying them with vodka and drugs

Nine Asian Muslim men were today found guilty of grooming and passing round vulnerable white schoolgirls aged between 13 and 15 for sex after plying them with alcohol and drugs.
Five girls were 'shared' by Kabeer Hassan, Abdul Aziz, Abdul Rauf, Mohammed Sajid, Adil Khan, Abdul Qayyum, Mohammed Amin, Hamid Safi and a 59-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons.
The ten-week trial was told that the men - who are all from Pakistan, some from the same village, apart from Safi who is from Afghanistan - groomed the teenage girls because they were vulnerable and from broken homes,
'They think that white teenage girls are worthless and can be abused without a second thought - it is this sort of behaviour that is bringing shame on our community.'The jury of three men and nine women heard that the defendants plied the girls, some as young as 13, with fast food, drink and drugs so they could 'pass them around' and use them for sex.
The victims were picked up from 'honeypot locations' where teenagers congregate, such as outside takeaway restaurants, and were then taken to 'chill houses' around the north of England for sex.
One 13-year-old victim became pregnant and had the child aborted.

The court heard that she sometimes had sex with one man while another raped a girl in the same room

The 59-year-old man was found guilty of conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with children under the age of 16, two counts of rape, aiding and abetting a rape, one count of sexual assault and an allegation of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation.
It took the jury of three men and nine women 21 hours and 22 minutes to reach all their verdicts.
Judge Gerald Clifton adjourned sentencing until tomorrow.

The offences happened in and around Rochdale in 2008 and 2009.
