Woman charged with livestreaming alleged rape of 17-year-old

A woman used a social media app to livestream the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl, an OH prosecutor said Wednesday as a grand jury indicted the woman and a co-defendant on several charges including rape and kidnapping.

The case came to light when authorities were contacted after an out-of-state companion of the woman saw the images, Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien said.

Marina Lonina, eighteen, and co-defendant Raymond Gates, twenty-nine, were charged with rape, kidnapping, sexual battery and pandering sexually-oriented matter involving a minor.

Lonina was also charged with illegal utilize of a minor in a nudity-oriented material or performance, related to the alleged utilize of the social media livestreaming app Periscope.

Periscope, an app for smartphones, uses a video function to authorize users to stream events live.

O'Brien said Lonina and the victim, who were friends, were socializing with Gates at a residence in Columbus on Feb. twenty-seven when Gates raped the 17-year-old girl. Lonina used the Periscope app to livestream the assault, O'Brien said.

Lonina had also taken a picture of the girl in the nude the night before at Lonina'south house, O'Brien said.

Gates is scheduled for arraignment Friday. Ct records don't list attorneys for either defendant to reply to the charges. They each face up to forty years in prison, if convicted.

In February, a FL woman received a six-month license suspension and one hundred fifty hours of community service after she streamed live video of herself driving drunk last year.
