China teacher couple sentenced to death for child sex ring

Two teachers who sold out pupils as young as 11-years-old to men seeking virgins for sex have been sentenced to death for running a child prostitution ring, Chinese press reports said Wednesday. The teachers, who were married, worked in southern Guizhou province and most of the 23 girls forced into sex slavery were students from the schools where they taught, the China Daily said. Six of the girls were aged under 14, according to the Shanghai Daily, which said that the victims supposedly being "virgins" was a main selling point. Other press reports said all the girls were aged from 11 to 17.
