The paedophiles ranged in age from 20 to 45, with one 14-year-old boy also implicated. The first offender, 39-year-old Mark Harris, had sex with the girl shortly after she turned 13, the York Press reported.
Harris, who was sentenced to four and a half years in prison, was ‘turning a frightened child into a very sexualised child’.
Mark Lindsay, 33, encouraged the victim to lie to her parents, telling them she was having a sleepover with a friend when she was in face travelling to his house for sex. Her mother suspected something was wrong after the girl got lost on her way home, and examined her mobile phone. She found a large number of highly sexual text messages and pictures on the child’s mobile phone and handed it to officers. They used it and other evidence to track down the suspects.
The men who were found to have had sexual contact with the girl included a teacher, a shop worker, a travelling salesman and others.
