Ahmed was said to be “a violent and controlling man”
The jailed leader of a Rochdale sex ring has been found guilty of 30 child rape charges.
Shabir Ahmed, 59, of Oldham, was one of nine men convicted of sex offences against children at Liverpool Crown Court in May.
He was not named at the time because he faced further charges, but was jailed for 19 years.
He has been found guilty at Manchester Crown Court of raping and sexually abusing a girl for more than a decade.
Prosecuting, Rachel Smith said Ahmed, of Windsor Road, had treated his victim as a “possession” which he used for his own sexual gratification.
She said he had been “a violent and controlling man” who had abused the girl on “an almost weekly basis”.
“She tried to make him stop, but it was to no avail,” she said.
The court was told the victim felt a sense of shame about what happened to her, which had stopped her reporting it to the police for many years.
Ms Smith said the reality of what he had done “was never far from her thoughts” and that she had described “having dreams about it”.
Judge Mushtaq Khokhar adjourned sentencing until August to allow for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
