Twenty-nine men from West Yorkshire have been charged for the child exploitation and rape of a girl over a 7-year period.
The abuse took place between 2003 and 2010 and began when the victim was just 13 years old. A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said, “The vast majority of offending occurred in Calderdale, but some offences occurred in the Bradford District.”
“The men have been charged with a variety of sexual offences following an investigation into non-recent child sexual exploitation.”
The suspects, aged between 35 and 64, are facing charges of rape, attempted rape, indecent assault and conspiracy to rape. They will appear at Bradford Magistrates’ Court on 7th and 9th of July.
