In Transcarpathia, the court sentenced three teenagers who raped a 14-year-old girl.
The attackers filmed the entire process on a phone and shared the video on the Internet.
The incident happened in the summer of 2021.
This is reported by "24 Kanal".
The Volovetskyi District Court of Zakarpattia Oblast sentenced the three accused to five years in prison.
However, they were exempted from serving their sentence due to the fact that they are minors, having been placed on probation for two years.
They raped an acquaintance and filmed everything
According to the investigation, in August 2021, the girl came to the basement at the invitation of one of the three teenagers.
One of them hit the girl in the stomach, the other bent her head and squeezed it between his legs so that she did not resist.
Then the teenagers undressed the girl and began to rape her one by one.
They filmed their crime on their phones and later distributed the footage to students at a local school.
She was silent because she felt fear and shame
The girl herself did not tell anyone about what happened to her for some time.
At the same time, the victim's grandmother says that she noticed how her granddaughter changed - she became gloomy, withdrawn and had problems sleeping.
She learned about the rape from the police.
The injured girl explained that she was friends with the perpetrators, that's why she agreed to the invitation to the basement, because she had no idea that they could do such a thing to her.
The girl explained the silence after that by the fact that she felt fear and shame because of what had happened.
Occurred by compensation
In its decision on exemption from serving a sentence with a probationary period, the court took into account the fact that the perpetrators were well-regarded by their place of residence and education and the absence of criminal records.
However, the victim asked to pay 450,000 hryvnias in moral compensation, but each of the offenders compensated 20,000 hryvnias, which is why the prosecution asked to collect 390,000 hryvnias of the difference in favor of the girl.
The court satisfied the request only partially - the perpetrators were ordered to pay 60,000 hryvnias to the victims, as well as cover procedural costs of more than 25,000 hryvnias for each.
We will remind you that in Shostka, Sumy Oblast, a 31-year-old malefactor raped his two 15-year-old female neighbors.
