Young girl was ‘passed around and had sex with 100 Asian men by age of 16’, child sex abuse trial hears
Victim said she ‘fell’ for her abuser when he made her feel special
Men would ‘demand’ to meet the victim, who was 13 when the abuse started
Defendants face a total of 28 counts of sexual abuse of five girls in Rotherham
A young girl was ‘passed around’ and had sex with 100 men by the time she was 16, jurors in a child sex abuse trial were told.
The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claims the abuse she suffered between 1998 and 2001 began when she was just 13 years old.
Her account was given in a video interview played at the trial of eight Asian men accused of the sexual abuse of five girls over a five-year period from 1998 to 2003.

The men were arrested and charged as part of Operation Stovewood , an investigation into sexual abuse which was launched after the Rotherham grooming scandal.
On Friday (Sept 7), Sheffield Crown Court heard how her number would be passed around between the men – with others then ‘demanding’ to meet her.
She said: ‘I can honestly say that by the age of 16 I had slept with 100 Asian men – some I didn’t see again.
‘The ones who come and use you for one time are the ones who are hard to remember.
‘As soon as you get to know them your number gets passed around.
‘Asian lads demanding to meet you – then you meet a new group and it went on like that.
‘I didn’t know at the time I was being passed around when I was 13 but I know now I’m older.’
