SIX men have appeared in court after a police investigation into child sexual exploitation in Dewsbury.
The investigation began last year when a 15-year-old girl was found by police at an address in Ravensthorpe.
The men, who had been arrested and bailed, were charged this week with various sexual offences against the girl.
On Wednesday, Dewsbury magistrates heard the offences were alleged to have taken place between May 10 and 13 2010.
Hasan Rehman, 18, of Tanhouse Street, Ravensthorpe was charged with attempted rape.
Ali Rehman, 26, also of Tanhouse Street, Ravensthorpe, was charged with three counts of rape and one of attempted rape.
Faifar Younis, 23, of Textile Street, Dewsbury, was charged with rape.
Larasab Hussain, 45, of Headfield Road, Savile Town, was charged with sexual assault.
All four were remanded in custody.
Wahid Hussain, 19, Broomer Street, Ravensthorpe, was charged with attempted rape.
Saqib Hussain, 31, of Huddersfield Road, Dewsbury, was charged with sexual assault.
Both men were granted conditional bail.
None of the men entered formal pleas.
The cases of all six were sent to Leeds Crown Court under section 51 of the Crime and Disorder Act.
The next hearing is due to take place at the crown court on Wednesday.
