FIVE Romanian farm workers have been jailed for the brutal gang rape of a teenager.
The victim was abducted from outside a nightclub and taken to a remote car park where the sickening group each took turns to rape her.
They even filmed parts of the horrifying ordeal on their mobile phones.
The woman stayed silent during the attack throughout as she thought she was going to be killed, a court in the Channel Island of Jersey heard.
The five attackers, Florin Calin, 20, Dorel Diaconu, 23, Oprea Dobre, 18, Alexandru Dobrin, 18, and Marius Dobrin, 24, have now each been jailed for 10 years, with all pleaded guilty to two charges of rape.
The Royal Court in Jersey heard during the sentencing hearing on Friday that they each took turns raping her in a car park in December last year.
A judge heard that the five Romanian droogs had gone to a nightclub when Marius Dobrin began dancing and flirting with the victim.
Crown Advocate Simon Thomas, prosecuting, said that he ‘hardly left her side’ for the rest of the night and that the victim ‘appeared to be very drunk’.
He added: “CCTV footage from the street outside the club shows Marius hovering over her, helping to light a cigarette and putting a coat over her shoulders.
“The other defendants can be seen waiting in a huddle nearby.”
Dobrin and the victim then walked down a street with the other four defendants following close behind.
The five men drove the victim to a car park where they raped her.
Reading from her statement to the police, Crown Advocate Thomas said that the victim did not attempt to fight back as “I thought I was going to get murdered”.
Calin then drove the victim and the other attackers back to town, where she was found by a member of the public who had heard ‘two screams’.
Requesting a sentence of ten years in prison, Crown Advocate Thomas said: “There is no case remotely like this one. That is to a say, a case where a young woman has been abducted by five men, driven to a remote location and raped while filming took place.”
The court heard that Diaconu and Calin both filmed parts of the attack – evidence which proved crucial to police when investigating.
The Bailiff, Sir William Bailhache, presiding, said that ‘by any standards these were appalling crimes’.
After the case, Acting Detective Inspector Christina MacLennan, head of the States police Serious Crime Unit, praised the bravery of the victim – who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder following the attack.
The officer added that without ‘the strength she has shown during this investigation, we would not have had the result we have today’.
She said: “Although stranger rape is a particularly serious offence to investigate, thankfully they remain a rare occurrence in Jersey.
“We remain committed to working with our partners, especially support and advocacy services to encourage victims of sexual crime to report such incidents.”
As well as being jailed for ten years, the five men will also be on the sex offenders’ register for 12 years and were recommended for deportation – something that hopefully the Jersey authorities will follow-through on.
A restraining order was also imposed, banning them from contacting the victim.
