A woman has been found guilty of running a paedophile ring that abused five children for more than a decade.
Marie Black, 34, has been discovered to be the alpha of a paedophile group of 'respectable people', including six women who used children s 'sexual play-things', Metro reports.
She was charged on 26 counts, including rape, conspiracy to rape and inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, all of which she denied.
She was found guilty on 23 of those counts.
Black sobbed uncontrollably in the dock as the verdicts were delivered. She was heard saying: ‘I’ve been stitched up.’
