Winchester Crown Court was told.
One 13-year-old girl would go straight from school to sell her body at
Forde's brothel -- a house in Salisbury, Wiltshire, which she called The
Oriental Massage Parlour.The court was told that one 15-year-old had sex
with five men at once and lost count of the number of times she sold
herself for sex while under Forde's control.
Forde, originally from the Philippines, became a prostitute three
years ago when she got behind on her mortgage payments but she denied
recruiting young girls for the trade, claiming she was capable of
servicing her customers herself.Hairdresser David Tungatt, 42, was
accused of helping to run the trade but claimed he was simply a friend
of Forde's and had nothing to do with prostitution. He also was
convicted of two charges of controlling prostitutes and also of
indecently assaulting one of the girls.
Forde was remanded in custody and will be sentenced today. Tungatt was
remanded on bail for pre-sentence reports.
