Five men face six-week trial over child abuse offences – as sixth defendant pleads guilty
Five men from South Yorkshire are to go on trial charged with historic sexual offences against two girls.
The men, who live in Rotherham and Sheffield, deny more than 20 offences relating to the two complainants and face a six-week trial at Sheffield Crown Court starting in January 2017.
The offences are said to have occurred between 1999 and 2001.
A sixth man, Amjad Ali, aged 37, of Broad Lane, Worksop, has pleaded guilty to one charge of sexual intercourse with a girl under 13 in relation to one of the complainants.
