Grooming Gang Pleads Guilty to Sexual Activity with Four Underage Girls
Taiyab Hussain, Mohammed Hizar Rizwan, Shaheem Ratyal, and Sohail Raja Ali pleaded guilty to sex offences against four girls aged between 13 and 14 years old.
The four men, aged 18 to 19, admitted to a range of offences including sexual activity with a child, possessing indecent photographs of children, and causing a child to engage in sexual activity at Stafford Crown Court on Friday.
The four men resident in Burton upon Trent, West Midlands, England, were only brought to justice after one of the young victims watched a film that warned girls could be groomed without realising it, and then told her father that she was being abused.
Staffordshire Police began an investigation and found four girls had been sexually abused between December 2016 and March 2017.
