A convicted sex attacker, who groomed and abducted a 12-year-old girl to be repeatedly gang-raped, has been jailed for 23 years.
Ibrahim Hussain, 35, from Bradford, raped the youngster three times over a three day period before taking her to a house where she was attacked by the five unknown men.
Judge David Hatton QC told the court she was raped by 'what can only be described as essentially a pack of ravenous wolves'.
The judge concluded that Hussain had arranged for the girl to go to Leeds for money and he had also made threats to her to get her to comply.
He said the effect of Hussain's 'use and control over the girl' had been immense.
Bradford Crown Court heard that the girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, had now moved out of the area and in a victim impact statement she said her life had been ruined and she did not know if she would ever get over her ordeal.
Jailing Hussain, Judge Hatton QC said: 'You may have destroyed her. One hopes not, but only time will tell. You groomed her into having some affection for you.
'She was a very vulnerable girl with an unstable home life and you preyed upon her vulnerability which you used for your own gratification.'
The court heard how Hussain was already on bail for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl he had contacted through Facebook when he took the vulnerable young girl from a park in Bradford last July.
Hussain contacted the 16-year-old via Facebook in September 2016 and tried to impress her with a photograph of his BMW and 'delusional promises' about coming out to meet someone special.
udge Hatton added: 'In the end she did not meet anyone particularly special she met you.
'I am satisfied that there was only one thing on your mind and that was sexual activity.'
The court heard that Hussain plied the teenager with vodka before sexually assaulting her in his car.
Hussain was found guilty by a jury yesterday of abducting and raping the 12-year-old, sexually assaulting the teenager and facilitating or arranging the rape of the younger girl in Leeds.
Judge Hatton confirmed that Hussain will serve half of his jail term before being considered for release, but he will not be let out until the Parole Board decide it is safe to do so.
Hussain will also be subject to an indefinite sexual harm prevention order and he must also register as a sex offender with the police for the rest of his life.
Speaking after sentencing, PC Jessica Ambler, of the Bradford District Safeguarding Unit, said:
'Hussain preyed on young girls in Bradford and plied them with alcohol and drugs before sexually abusing them.
'The fact he committed the offences against his youngest victim while on bail demonstrates the danger he poses to young girls and vulnerable young women, who should feel a lot safer knowing that he has been given a significant jail term.
'We hope this outcome will give his victims some closure and allow them to move forward with their lives.
'We also hope it will encourage other victims to engage with the Bradford District Safeguarding Unit, whose specially trained officers will investigate every report with partners to identify perpetrators of sexual abuse and bring them before the courts.'
Officers in the case PC Ambler and Detective Constable Laura Worsnop were commended by the Judge for their investigations.
