Rochdale Sex Abuse: Nine Men Charged
Nine men from Rochdale have been charged following an investigation into child sexual exploitation. The charges relate to offences committed separately against one teenage girl in the Rochdale area by different men between 2008 and 2009.
Greater Manchester Police say the victim was traced as part of a separate investigation which resulted in nine men being jailed in May for running a child exploitation ring in the Heywood area of Rochdale.
Their trial at Liverpool Crown Court heard the group had plied their vulnerable underage victims with alcohol and drugs and passed them around for sex.
The police say this latest investigation, which has led to nine other men being charged, is different in nature as there are no allegations of trafficking.
Freddy Kendakumana, 26, has been charged with three counts of rape, attempted rape and four counts of sexual activity with a child under 16. (continue reading...)
