Six Guilty In Rotherham Sex Abuse Trial
Three men and two women have been found guilty of a string of offences involving the sexual exploitation of girls in Rotherham.
One other person had previously admitted offences. Another two were cleared of all charges.
The gang led by brothers Arshid, Basharat and Bannaras Hussain - known as Mad Ash, Bash and Bono - were charged with 51 indictments and more than 70 offences.
They were committed against 12 teenagers between 1987 and 2003.
The brothers were described as a violent, gun-toting and drug-dealing trio who appeared to "own" the South Yorkshire town.
In case you missed it, you can hear our special report from Heart's Nightly News again here:
Jurors at Sheffield Crown Court heard victims were passed around by the men, who raped and beat them.
Prosecutor Michelle Colborne QC told the court that teenagers were "targeted, sexualised and in some instances subjected to acts of a degrading and violent nature".
Victims were trafficked, locked up, physically assaulted and threatened with death.
One told jurors she thought she was going to die when her hands and feet were tied and she had petrol poured over her.
Another was abused from the age of 11, and passed around "at the say so of Arshid Hussain", the ringleader, often as "payment" for debts.
One girl was told to dig her own grave by Basharat Hussain during a horrific two-hour deal in the Peak District during which she was physically and verbally abused and spat on.
Arshid and Basharat Hussain were found guilty of multiple rapes and indecent assaults.
Younger sibling Bannaras Hussain, 36, pleaded guilty to 10 charges including rape, indecent assault and assault at the beginning of the trial.
Qurban Ali, 53, was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to rape.
Karen MacGregor, 58, and Shelley Davies, 40, were found guilty of conspiracy to procure prostitutes and false imprisonment.
Described as a "mother figure" in court, MacGregor took in girls from children's homes, purporting to provide them with safe haven and support.
One victim said: "It was like Hansel and Gretel living at Karen's. It was all nice and shiny and inviting and then it turned quite horrible."
The guilty six will be sentenced on Friday.
Brothers Majid Bostan, 37 and Sajid Bostan, 38, were cleared of all charges.
