A 15-year-old alleged victim of a female pimp has told a court she was forced to have sex with seven men in one night.

The woman, who is now 21, was giving evidence during the trial of Amanda Spencer at Sheffield Crown Court.

Spencer, aged 22, is accused of running a pool of teenage prostitutes in Sheffield, rather than having to sell her own body for drugs money.

Giving evidence via videolink, the woman said that as a teenager she knew Spencer for two years while she was homeless, and during that time Spencer forced her to have sex with 40 or 50 men.

The girl said she used cocaine and cannabis every day to help her forget what was happening and put her ‘in a trance’.

Recalling one night in particular, she said Spencer took her to a house full of asylum seekers and forced her to have sex with six men, one after another.

When a seventh man entered the room she refused to have sex with him.

“Amanda hit me when I said I wasn’t doing any more,” she said. “She punched me and hit me and started pulling my hair. I had a black eye.

“She was getting aggressive saying, ‘Just think about the drugs’.”

Asked how she felt, the witness said: “Intimidated. I thought I was going to die. I thought I was going to get beat up to death.”

The girl said she relented and had sex with the seventh man.

“I just let him get on with it,” she said.

The girl said Amanda was paid £150 by the men, and spent it all on cocaine.

“She was right happy and nice to me, and said, ‘Let’s go and get what we need, let’s go and get us drugs’.”
Asked if she wanted to have sex with the men, she said: “No, but I did because she kept hitting me.”

Spencer of Canklow Road, Rotherham, and five men deny 46 child sexual exploitation offences.

The trial continues.
