Lord Ahmed of Rotherham to face trial on child sex charges

The 61-year-old is also charged with two counts of attempting to rape a girl who was under the age of 16.

The charges relate to dates between 1971 and 1974.

Wait... 2019-1974 = 45 years ago, 2019-1971 = 48 years ago... The man is 61... 61-48= 13years old, 61-45= 16 years old

The man is 61, so he is charged with crime he committed between the ages of 13 and 16 years old...

Mohammed Farouq, 68... Charges dating to the late 1960's... (let's say 1968), that would make him 17 at the time.

Mohammed Tariq, 63, of Gerard Road, Broom, Rotherham is charged with two counts of indecent assault alleged to have taken place between 1970 and 1972. [source]

So Tariq was between 14 and 16 years old at the time...

I am just wondering what kind of teenage sexual abuser gang they belonged to in the 70's... Not saying it makes it any less grievous, just saying that it is unexpected...
