Ayden Devereux was sent to jail for seven and a half years, with a non-parole period of five years after he filmed the gang rape of a 16-year-old girl. The 26-year-old Australian man, who shot it with a GoPro camera, was sentenced for two counts of sexual intercourse without consent.
The young girl’s intelligence level is below 99.6 percent of her peers. Therefore, she has a minor intellectual disability. She has no memory of the sexual assault she went through, as she passed out at the party she attended in May 2015.
It was Tristan Carlyle-Watson, one of the co-offenders, who invited the girl and picked her up for the party. She was meeting him for the first time that night. They came in contact through Facebook, the Daily Telegraph reported.
She got so drunk at the party that she could barely feel her legs. She was at a semi-conscious level when she was attacked by the group of men and raped. When she got up the following morning, she was alone and naked. She covered herself with a towel and left the place at St. Clair in Western Sydney.
Later on, the girl claimed that she had been forced to drink beer. Now, she believes the drink was spiked, as she has no memory of what happened afterward.
The crime would have gone unreported, but Devereux and Frank Kordis, the owner of the GoPro camera, were arrested for vandalism a couple of days after the party. The camera was seized, and the police discovered the 17-minute recorded video. The girl was identified and the procedure started.
Judge Chris Hoy called Devereux’s actions that night “vile and revolting.” He said what the group of men had done to the young girl could only be described as gang rape. The judge added that the group of men had taken turns and motivated one another to go after the teenage girl, who was barely conscious.
According to 9 News, the judge called the offenders “predators.”
Devereux, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced in NSW District Court. Other co-offenders, including a 17-year-old, were found guilty after a seven-week trial. They will be sentenced next week.
