A ROTHERHAM woman has been charged with 41 child prostitution offences — some dating back to when she was just 15 years old.
Amanda Spencer (22), of Canklow Road, and five Sheffield men aged between 26 and 66 appeared before magistrates on Tuesday.
The six are accused of 70 offences related to child sexual exploitation of 17 young victims, including one boy, between 2004 and 2011.
Spencer’s charges, which relate to nine of the victims, include inciting or causing a child under 13 to become a prostitute.
All six were bailed to appear at Sheffield Crown Court on July 4.
