View Full Version : Sex Gang Preys On 139 Schoolgirls

9th July 2011, 04:55 PM
THE ringleader of a teen gang which lured up to 139 vulnerable schoolgirls - some only 11 - into underage sex was jailed for ten years yesterday.

Jake Ormerod plied them with drink and drugs until they were "completely intoxicated" before having unprotected sex with them.
The fiend had an "apparently insatiable need for sex", a court heard. Cops believe he was the centre of a ten-strong mob who preyed on immature girls over two years.

Ormerod, now 20, targeted vulnerable runaways and girls in foster care, hanging around school gates to pick them up and take them to his filthy flat, Exeter Crown Court was told.

Prosecutor Andrew MacFarlane said: "He mercilessly corrupted them. He never took no for an answer. His house was disgusting, with broken furniture everywhere."

Police launched Operation Mansfield to trap Ormerod after several youngsters complained of being sexually assaulted in Torbay, Devon. A letter went to 16,000 parents at 14 schools warning of a major paedophile network. Ormerod admitted 13 charges of sexual activity with a child.

Cops said they expect to make more arrests. DI Simon Snell said: "We believe there are 139 child victims in Torbay. "The girls tend to go missing for two or three nights. This is not a case of abduction but their parents and carers don't know where they are. "They are attracted by alcohol and parties but end up being abused while at Ormerod's home."
