marie black For your nightmares: Marie Black, 34, from Norwich, found guilty yesterday of rape, conspiracy to rape and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. Marie Black, aka Marie Adams, is a paedophile.

In the dock she wept. She complained that she’d been “stitched up”.

In court she denied it all.

Giving a defence opening speech, Sarah Elliott QC, representing Black, said she “wholeheartedly” refutes that any abuse took place, adding that the children’s recollections had never been challenged.

She said it was possible the victims’ accounts may have been “influenced” and “encouraged” by others.

“Their carers have accepted what they’ve been told, the social workers have accepted what they’ve been told, the police have accepted what they’ve been told,” Ms Elliott said. “Nobody has challenged them.”

She will be sentenced on September 28.

She did not act alone.

Marie Black, 34, of Norwich, stood trial with nine others, including five women, at Norwich Crown Court.

Michael Rogers, 53, from Romford, Essex, was also found guilty of 14 counts, including cruelty, rape and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. Jason Adams, 43, from Norwich, was found guilty of 13 similar counts.

The Times :

During the three-month trial, the court was told how the ring would hold parties with other adults who would play cards to see who would get to abuse which child, while other forms of abuse included the use of toys such as Barbie dolls…

In interviews with the victims, it was disclosed that the children were forced to have sex with each other and would be abused in front of each other and other adults.
