Rotherham sex abuse trial: Alleged abuse victim ‘had no choice’
An alleged victim of child sexual exploitation in Rotherham said she felt she had no choice when asked to perform sex acts on several men.
The woman told Sheffield Crown Court she was just 12 when she was picked up from a children’s home and abused by Basharat Hussain and two other men.
She also said she had been taken to Blackpool and raped by several men.
Mr Hussain, who denies the claims, is one of seven people on trial over alleged child abuse in Rotherham.
The witness, who cannot be named due to the nature of the allegations, told jurors said she was first abused after she and a friend were taken out for a meal by Mr Hussain and a number of other Asian males.
She said: “I felt very grown up. They took us out and paid for the meal. I did not feel I could say no.”
