The Rotherham child sex exploitation verdicts are a "crucial milestone" for the victims of abuse, police have said.
Senior investigating officer Martin Tate said he was pleased those responsible had been held to account for the "systematic and organised sexual abuse of young girls".
Speaking outside Sheffield Crown Court, he said: "The verdict today marks a crucial milestone for those victims and survivors who endured years of violence and horrific sexual abuse at the hands of these vile individuals.
"I can't begin to put into words the trauma that these women experienced at such a young age."
Members of a Rotherham child sex grooming ring who subjected teenage girls to years of rape, violence and prostitution due for sentencing.
The woman, known only as Jessica, told ITV News she was just 14 when she started seeing a man,24, who she believed was her boyfriend.
The abuse goes back more than two decades and could have been stopped much earlier.
