BEWARE OF THE ACADEMICS – Those “Oxford men”!
So no, it wasn’t Stephen Hawking and Edwin Hubble.
The gang was convicted of more than 20 offences including rape and indecent assault between 1998 and 2005.
Prosecutor Oliver Saxby QC said they carried out the “routine, cynical and predatory sexual exploitation” of vulnerable girls who were groomed with alcohol and drugs.
The five victims were aged between 13 and 15 when the offences started.
Opening the case at Oxford Crown Court, Mr Saxby said the gang preyed on girls who had a background of problems at home…
Det Ch Insp Mark Glover said the convictions were only possible because of the “incredible bravery” of the gang’s victims.
He said: “This group of men subjected them to an almost unimaginable level of cruelty and sexual abuse over a significant period of time.
“To have come through that trauma, and to have been able to help and support us throughout our investigation is a testament to the strength of their characters.”
Another day, another grooming gang. Is there English city without one?
