a victim who was abused by all eight defendants jailed for sexually exploiting teenage girls in Rotherham has said: “A piece of me is missing and I will never get that back.”
The woman’s victim impact statement was read to Sheffield Crown Court, detailing how the men who abused her when she was 13 and 14 years old left her with a range of deep mental health problems.
The woman, who cannot be identified, spoke as eight men were jailed for sexual exploitation. They included the brother of three men, who were earlier given jail sentences for sexually exploiting girls in the town, who has been jailed for 19 years for subjecting his vulnerable 13-year-old victim to a “campaign of violent rape”.
