Three depraved men from the West Midlands face jail today after they held a 14-year-old schoolgirl captive and plied her with drugs, forcing her into sex with 20 "clients".

Jake Cairns, Brandon Sharples and Jack McInally, all from Coventry, held the girl as part of a terrifying five-day ordeal in the West Midlands city and face jail today.

All three men were due to sentenced earlier this week at Birmingham Crown Court but the hearing has been adjourned until Thursday.

It is believed the victim was made to have sex with around 20 people before West Midlands Police rescued her on June 13, 2015.

They found her trying to climb out of a first floor bathroom window, in only her underwear, in a bid to escape her abusers.

The girl disappeared from a relative’s home in Coventry and information led police to an address in Somerset Road, Radford, where they found the teenager trying to make her escape.

They forced open the front door to the property and arrested Cairns, McInally and Sharples.

21-year-old Cairns, from Cheveral Avenue in Radford, found guilty of facilitating the sexual exploitation of a child at Warwick Crown Court on Tuesday.

Sharples, 20, from Wyley Road in Radford, and McInally, 21, of no fixed address, were found guilty of the same crimes.

Cairns was additionally found guilty of arranging child sexual exploitation and taking and distributing indecent images of a child.

The police investigation showed that Cairns had taken explicit photos of the teenager and posted them on adult contact site Viva Street. Detectives found an email address linking Cairns to the Viva Street advert.

The men were initially due to be sentenced on Monday, but this hearing was adjourned until Thursday, reports the Coventry Telegraph.

And DNA discovered on a duvet in a room, where she was forced to have sex, was shown to have come from five different sources, including Cairns.

Det Con Jon Barker said: “These three men were involved with the shocking exploitation of a young girl − they took advantage of her drug dependency and made money out of forcing her to have sex with strangers.

“Cairns initially denied knowing the girl but later changed his story after he was identified during an ID procedure − and our financial enquiries showed he’d paid for the Viva Street advert via his own bank account.

“Now that a jury has found them guilty they can expect to be handed long jail terms.”
