The sexual abuse of a vulnerable boy is an example of ‘how children have been let down by authorities’
Members of a paedophile ring, who sexually abused a vulnerable boy, have been jailed. The boy turned to prostitution after running away from care in Leicestershire. The paedophiles were handed prison sentences ranging from 3 to life for a string of sex offences on the boy between 2009 and 2011.
Warwick Crown Court heard the main victim ran away from care and was missing for 11 days before he was found at the home of a pimp named Stephen Kelly. Kelly befriended the vulnerable boy in the gay red light area of Birmingham, after he picked him up from New Street Station, and he groomed the boy for prostitution.
