A teenager who is alleged to have been sold as a child prostitute by two brothers has told a jury that one of the men had sex with her before her 16th birthday.
The alleged victim, now aged 19, told Stafford Crown Court she had sex with Adhel Ali, who she knew as Eddie, on the second occasion that they met in Telford, Shropshire.
Adhel Ali, 24, and Mubarek Ali, 29, are accused of committing a string of sexual offences against vulnerable girls, including five counts of controlling child prostitution.
Giving evidence on the second day of the brothers' trial, the first witness in the case alleged that she had also had sex with Mubarek Ali after she had turned 16.
Addressing the jury from behind a screen, which meant she could not be seen by the defendants, the 19-year-old further claimed to have been given cannabis by both men.
Under questioning from prosecutor Deborah Gould, the complainant confirmed she had been involved in acts of dishonesty, including shoplifting, during 2007 and 2008.
Admitting that her life was "a bit of a mess" by the end of 2007, the teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, described how she first met Adhel Ali earlier that year and was driven to the Hortonwood area of Telford.
A year later, the witness said, she met Adhel Ali again near a bank in the centre of Wellington, Telford, as she walked home.
"He was sitting in the car with his brother," she told the court. "Eddie called me - he just shouted my name."
The alleged victim told the court she then drove with Adhel Ali to a derelict school, where they parked up and had sex.
The Ali brothers, both of Regent Street, Wellington, deny a total of 24 offences alleged to have been committed against four girls between March 2008 and December 2009.
Mubarek Ali denies four counts of controlling child prostitution, two of trafficking within the UK for sexual exploitation, and one of causing child prostitution between March 2008 and December 2009.
His brother denies three charges of controlling child prostitution, 11 of sexual activity with a child, two of inciting child prostitution, one of meeting a child following sexual grooming, one of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, and a count of rape alleged to have been committed between June and September 2008.
The court was told on Monday that the brothers were arrested in December 2009 after parents, police and other professionals became increasingly concerned about a number of girls in the area.
The Crown alleges that the defendants repeatedly sold the girl who gave evidence today as a prostitute, often to up to three or four men at a time, for a protracted period.
The trial was adjourned until Wednesday.
