In a unanimous verdict following a lengthy trial, eleven Muslim men were found guilty of having groomed a 14-year-old white British girl for their sexual exploitation. Ten of the men were found guilty of raping the minor; an eleventh man was found guilty of sexual activity with her. Their ages ranged from 19 to 63.

The horrific crimes were committed in Keighley, a small town in northern England with an over 50 percent Muslim population. The town has suffered a series of arrests over recent years for child rape, an epidemic that has hit other towns in England, particularly Rotherham, in which at least 1,400 minors were sexually exploited between 1997 to 2013, predominantly by gangs of British-Pakistani men.

During the trial of the "Muslim rape gang" in Keighley, the jury learned that the 14-year-old girl had been repeatedly raped by the men between 2011 and 2012, often in public spaces, including parks and churches.

Judge Roger Thomas QC said that he had never presided over defendants as "insolent and disrespectful" as the eleven men.

"In 40 years of practice, I have never seen a dock that has been as insolent and disrespectful as this one," said Judge Thomas. "I have the poorest of opinions about the defendants."

According to Michelle Colborne QC, the girl was "desperate to fit in" and "was noted to be a reserved young girl with low self-esteem" with "no friends."

Breitbart London, which has been following the case since it charges were first leveled in May, reports that after initially being raped while still a virgin by a 17-year-old drug dealer Ahmed Al-Choudhury, the "nasty" men passed her around, referring to her as the "little white slag" and a "white bastard." That started a cycle of rapes by Choudhury's acquaintances. At one point she was allegedly raped by five of the men in succession.

On one occasion, the girl was forced to have sex with five defendants: Nazir Khan, 23, Saqib Younis, 29, Hussain Sardar, 19, Zain Ali, 20 and Faisal Khan, 27.

Another attack involving Sufyan Ziarab, 22, Yasser Kabir, 25, Bilal Ziarab, 21, and Tauqeer Hussain, 23, allegedly happened the underground carpark of a disused police station. Police found graffiti on the walls bearing the girl’s name and the names of the defendants.

The court also heard that the girl was forced to perform oral sex on Rohail Iqbal, 22, and Rohail Hussain, 18, outside the local leisure centre, while Israr Ali, 19, while is accused of forcing her to carry out oral sex on him in a park.

"The victim was missing from home and school so often – it seems to be accurate that police and other agencies were doing their best to try to exercise some control over the victim," said Judge Thomas. "They were met with an unhappy young girl who was in a vulnerable position and unable to take their help."
