The men, who are aged between 36 and 48 preyed on vulnerable young children
A group of pedophiles who abused teenage girls in a vehicle they nicknamed the e ‘s**wagon’ have all been jailed for a total of 90 years.
The men, who are aged between 36 and 48 preyed on vulnerable young children as young as 13 by plying them with drink and drugs at ‘parties’ in Oxford, UK.
A judge branded the pedophiles as ‘predatory and cynical’ who have all been jailed between seven and a half and fifteen years each.
Judge Peter Ross said that the investigating the pedophile gang uncovered a massive ‘systematic and widespread grooming’ in the UK.
Investigating officer DS Nicola Douglas: ‘None of the perpetrators have admitted their guilt or shown any remorse.’
“The impact of these offenses on the victims, their families and relationships cannot be underestimated.” she continued
“There are devastating consequences which last long after the offense is committed.”
“Without these women telling their stories, perpetrators who exploit and commit serious sexual offenses against some of the most vulnerable children and young adults in our communities will remain hidden, unpunished and free to do more harm.”
“‘I know nothing can ever undo the unimaginable suffering they were put through, but I hope it gives them some comfort to know these men have finally been held accountable for the abhorrent crimes they committed.”
According to The DailyMail: The trial heard how the men coerced the girls into having sex at some addresses across Oxford, as well as in cars parked at lay-bys, and at local parks.

During the trial, some victims recalled a black Nissan Serena people carrier in which many sexual cases of abuse are alleged to have taken place, including gang rape.
One victim said of the vehicle: ‘They would pick the girls, have sex with them, and dump them. Everything happened in that Serena.’
The same victim said that the men would ‘take it in turns’ to have sex with her and that gang rapes would take place after she was plied with drink and drugs.
Another victim said: ‘[They] made you believe they care about you, and they don’t.
‘Like you are something important to them, that you are a friend to them. And it wasn’t that. It was just to get what they want. It took me some years to realize that.’
The sex attacks took place between 1998 and 2005 and defense barristers insisted the men were themselves young and ‘immature’ at the time.
The court heard the gang abused the teenage girls in properties around Oxford and in lay-bys
Speaking after the case, prosecutor Adrian Foster said:
“These cases are, in effect, organized crime, and we approached this case in the same way we would approach any organized crime case by making connections and building an understanding of criminal networks.”
“We worked closely with Thames Valley Police from early in the investigation to help build the most robust possible prosecution case.”
“Their investigators, and Crown Prosecution Service lawyers and caseworkers, have worked tirelessly to bring this problematic prosecution to court. I thank all who bravely came forward to provide evidence for the trial.”
“The emotional impact on the victims and their family of the abhorrent actions of these men is impossible to quantify. I hope that these sentences give some small comfort to them.”
