Aylesbury Sex Abuse Trial – 6 Men Jailed

6 men have been jailed for a total of 82 years following the grooming and abuse of two school girls between 2006 and 2012. The abuse took place in cars, vans and flats in and around Buckinghamshire – even sometimes in the girls’ own homes.

Legal Proceedings

The Old Bailey heard how the abuse involved child prostitution, multiple rapes and the administration of drugs to ‘stupefy’ their victims.

Both victims gave evidence and the court heard how they both had experienced troubled upbringings as children. The court heard how the girls were befriended by the men, who often enticed them with alcohol, food, DVDs and drugs and after a time, the girls came to see the men as their boyfriends.

Girl A

The jury were told that one of the victims, known only as girl A, was passed around 60 different Asian men for sex – when she just was 12 or 13 years old. The jury heard that the victim had been conditioned to believe that this was a normal form of behaviour.

Judge John Bevan, QC, said of girl A:

“For the price of a McDonald’s, a milkshake and cinema ticket, she became ‘liked’ by stall holders in Aylesbury market, taxi and bus drivers…”

He added:

“Why these defendants focused their attention on white under-age girls is unexplained but I have no doubt vulnerability played a substantial part in it,”

“If they pursued Asian under-age girls, they would have paid a heavy price in their community.”

In a statement, girl A expressed her feelings of “worthlessness” as she fought depression and alcohol dependence, adding:

“I feel my teenage years were taken away from me.”

Girl B

Girl B, meanwhile, said that the sentence was ‘academic’ as ‘no sentence could ever put right what happened’.

Girl B’s solicitor, Alan Collins, has stated that they will be suing Buckinghamshire County Council for their ‘negligence’ that ultimately ‘resulted in the unnecessary suffering of these victims’.

However, Buckinghamshire County Council has urged other victims to come forward and has said that it is:

“Determined to do everything we can to stamp out all forms of sexual abuse in Buckinghamshire”
