Four men who “preyed” on and groomed vulnerable children, have been found guilty of sexually exploiting three victims from the ages of 12-15 years between 2016 and 2018 in Manchester.
Three of the men, Parizian Calin, 20, Sebastian Baltatu, 18, and Adrian Calin, 20, all pleaded not guilty to countless sexual abuse offences including four counts of rape of a girl under 13 years but all 3 were then found guilty at Manchester Crown Court and received 13 years, three years and 12 months respectively in a young offenders’ institution. Ilie Baltatu, 22, who admitted seven sex offences was jailed for eight years.
One of the victims – who was only 12 when the abuse started, was raped by Sebastian Baltatu and was then also raped repeatedly by Parizian Calin, who was also known as David. He also facilitated other men to rape her, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.
Supt Rebecca Boyce of GMP said the young victims “suffered the most unimaginable and traumatic abuse”. Lisa O’Neill, from the Crown Prosecution Service said all of the men “deliberately targeted and groomed the young victims… because they were underage and because of their vulnerability”. “The victims were just children when they were subjected to appalling sexual exploitation.”
All four were ordered to sign the sex offenders register and Parizian Calin, Ilie and Sebastian Baltatu were subjected to a sexual harm prevention order.
