A woman from Chesterfield who was groomed as a teenager by an older girl to be sexually abused has spoken out to raise awareness.
Samantha Owens' story is a story of a childhood stolen in the worst way imaginable. But it is one that she feels needs to be heard.
She has written a book called Pimped about her personal experiences of abuse which also sheds a light on a wider network of exploitation.
After being removed from her parents, Samantha led a nomadic existence in the South Yorkshire care system. Never in one place for very long, she became increasingly lost.
Into that void stepped Amanda Spencer, an older girl who groomed her and bought Samantha clothes and other gifts.
At the age of 13, Spencer took Samantha to a house full of strange men where she was raped. This was just the beginning of a pattern of abuse that went on for two years.
Amanda Spencer made money from selling Samantha for sex and was later jailed for running a child sex ring.
In 2014, Spencer was convicted of preying on a number of young girls and selling them for sex. She was jailed for 12 years, a further three following another trial in 2017.
Seeing her locked up was a moment of overwhelming relief for Samantha.
