THREE men plied a 14-year-old schoolgirl with drugs and forced her to have sex with 20 men have been convicted.
The sick trio advertised the teen as a prostitute and pretended she was 18 years old.
Jake Cairns, 21, Brendon Sharples, 20, and Jack McInally, 21, posted her on adult contract site Viva Street and kept her captive for five days.
Warwick Crown Court heard how she was found in her underwear trying to climb out of a first floor bathroom when she was rescued by cops in 2015.
The abduction was looked into after a relative in Coventry reported the girl had gone missing.
Cairns was tracked down by officers after they found an email address linked to the 21-year-old on the Viva Street advert.
The ad featured horrifying images of the young girl.
DNA discovered on a duvet in a room, where she was forced to "entertain" clients, was traced to five separate people, including Cairns.
They were all found guilty of facilitating the sexual exploitation of a child on Tuesday.
Cairns, of Coventry, was additionally found guilty of arranging child sexual exploitation and taking and distributing indecent images of a child.
He will be sentenced alongside Sharples, of Coventry and McInally, of no fixed address, at Birmingham Crown Court on January 8. The trio were remanded in custody.
Detective Constable Jon Barker, of West Midlands Police, said: "These three men were involved with the shocking exploitation of a young girl - they took advantage of her drug dependency and made money out of forcing her to have sex with strangers.
"Cairns initially denied knowing the girl but later changed his story after he was identified during an ID procedure - and our financial enquiries showed he'd paid for the Viva Street advert via his own bank account.
"Now that a jury has found them guilty they can expect to be handed long jail terms."
