On the 25th January 2017, five Rotherham men were found guilty of the sexual abuse of two girls in Rotherham and were convicted at the Sheffield Crown Court.
Basharat Dad was found guilty of six counts of rape of a child, five counts of indecent assault and one count of false imprisonment;
Nasar Dad was found guilty of one count of false imprisonment, one count of rape and one count of inciting gross indecency with a child;
Mohammed Sadiq was found guilty of one count of sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of thirteen;
Taylal Dad was found guilty of one count of rape;
Matloob Hussain was found guilty of one count of sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of thirteen.
The girls were given alcohol and cannabis before being intimidated into performing sex acts. The offences relate back to the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.
Detective Chief Inspector Martin Tate said, “These men have been found guilty of a catalogue of vile sex offences against two young girls who were given alcohol and cannabis and intimidated into performing sexual acts. On one occasion, one was locked alone in a flat for hours without food, water or electricity. The Court heard harrowing evidence from two very brave women whose childhoods were robbed by these men.”
The men are due to be sentenced on the 2nd February 2017
