Article here. Excerpt:

'A drunken gang of girls who took Snapchat photos and videos of a "ritualised humiliation" sex attack on an amateur footballer has been jailed.

Brogan Gillard, the 26-year-old ringleader of the group, was filmed dancing around the victim’s naked body as she cut his hair, sliced onions over him and sexually assaulted him with a pair of scissors.

Paige Cunningham, 22, and Shannon Jones, 20, also posed for "trophy photographs" with the unconscious 19 year old victim and a Snapchat post showed one girl holding the man’s penis.

The video was shared on social media and was seen by their victim’s girlfriend, Preston Crown Court heard. Gillard then joked about using carrots and onions in the sex assault on Facebook.

Judge Graham Knowles QC said he sentenced as if it had been three men on a female.
The court heard in his victim impact statement that he has flashbacks and suicidal thoughts and feels anxious.

Gillard has a string of previous convictions, including arson, false benefits claims, harassment of a neighbour, theft, and drink driving. Cunningham, a mother of two, has previous for battery, theft, shoplifting and assaulting a police officer.

All three pleaded guilty to sexual assault. Gillard also pleaded guilty to unrelated child cruelty charges.

Mitigating for Gillard, Sharon Watson, said her client had been drunk and did it as a joke, but admits it is "deeply unpleasant, disturbing and upsetting". Two of her children have now been adopted, it was added.'
