Girl, 12, allegedly raped by man was expelled from school for vodka hangover, jury told

A 12-YEAR-OLD alleged rape victim was later excluded from school for behavioural problems, including being "heavily hungover on vodka", a jury at Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday.
Police officers and a Bradford Council community resource worker became involved with the girl amid fears that there could be child sex exploitation issues.
The girl's phone was ringing all day when she was at school and she claimed to have had sex several times with a boy of her own age, the court was told.
Usaid Zeb, 23, of Daisy Hill Lane, Daisy Hill, Bradford, is on trial denying two charges of raping a child under 13 in the summer of 2012.
David McGonigal, for the prosecution, alleges the girl sneaked out of her home in Bradford to meet Zeb when she was 12 and he was 21.
It is the Crown's case that she twice had sex with Zeb, who she knew as "Khany", in his car in the early hours of the morning.
The jury has heard that the authorities were alerted after the school summer holidays in 2012 when the child became worried that she had contracted a sexually transmitted disease.
The school nurse arranged for her to see her GP after being told she was sexually active.
She went on to have two pregnancy tests and the school, police and social workers became involved with the family.
But when she was alone with the doctor, she said she had had sex with a boy her own age, the jury heard.When her mother was with her in the doctor's surgery, the child denied having sex with anyone.
Aged 13, the girl had a "cynical" attitude towards the police and became angry when officers took her phone away.
She covered her nose and mouth with her jacket and refused to co-operate when the police came to her home.
On another occasion, she refused to get out of bed to speak to them.
When the girl was 14, she suddenly told a police officer that she had had sex twice with "Khany" and she revealed his phone number.
The jury heard she described him as a tall Asian man, aged over 20.
She said he lived in the Daisy Hill area of Bradford and was a drug dealer who drove a silver Vauxhall Astra.
The girl claimed she sneaked out at night with a friend of her mother's to meet him.
She spoke to the police at a pupil referral unit for excluded schoolchildren in Bradford.
The police had kept in regular contact with her to update her about how the investigation was going.
Mr McGonigal is expected to close the case for the Crown on Monday.
The trial continues.
