Two men have been jailed for drugging and raping vulnerable underage girls they found walking the streets in West Yorkshire.
30 year old Shazad Rehman, was jailed for 18 and half years and Bilal Hussain, 23, was jailed for 17 and a half years at Bradford Crown Court.
Judge Jonathan Rose said the men “engaged in a course of conduct which has become increasingly and depressingly familiar in this country”.
The pair denied abusing the girls, who were picked up as they cruised the streets of Keighley and Halifax.
A jury of eight men and two women found them guilty of a series of sex and drugs offences after two days of deliberation.
The court heard how Rehman and Hussain plied the girls with alcohol and cannabis and took them to hotels for sex.
Rehman referred to the girls as “fresh meat”, the court heard.
