The victim was a young woman with learning difficulties. The ordeal lasted 2 hours and involved 10 men. They horrifically burned half her body with caustic soda, to try and destroy DNA evidence, which has left her scarred for life- and her body is so damaged it still cannot control it's own temperature. The defendants were smirking in the dock, they feel no remorse.
And they will hardly feel any punishment either it seems. They got sentences of 6 years, which means they could be out of jail in 2 1/2 years.
I don't know anyone involved in this case, but I wanted to shout in fury at the radio when I heard the sentences. What IS the maximum sentence for rape anyway? And why wasn't it imposed here?
