Four men jailed over sexual exploitation of young girls in Newcastle

Four men have been jailed for up to 12 and a half years each for their involvement in a sex grooming network in Newcastle.

The men trafficked their victims – said to be held “in thrall” by a ready supply of drugs and alcohol – around houses in Tyneside, where they were sexually assaulted.

Newcastle crown court heard that the gang contacted their female victims, who were aged 13-16, on Facebook to discuss sex parties and on one occasion demanded sex in return for paying for a tattoo.

The offences occurred between 2007 and 2014, and the victims were described by the prosecution as “immature and vulnerable”. The men gave the girls drugs including ecstasy, cocaine, speed and cannabis, in return for “sexual favours and services”.
