'It's technically rape', boasts teen after sexually assaulting unconscious girl

London: A teenager who was filmed sexually assaulting an unconscious woman has been jailed for eight years after he was heard saying ‘it’s technically rape’.

According to a report in The Sun, the attacker, identified as Leppard, made the statement only after one of his friends, Tommy Conway, slapped the unconscious woman’s naked bottoms and said that it was his turn to rape the girl.

While the case was undergoing a trial in the Maidstone Crown Court, prosecutors said that the victim was high on alcohol when she was sexually assaulted by the teens. She came to know about the rape only after she was shown the video clip by her friend.

During one of trials, the court was told that the attackers did not use a condom and the girl too did not consume any contraceptive pill since she wasn’t aware of the assault.

Prosecutor Nina Ellin said that the victim’s friend was the one who recorded the act on camera.

“While she was filming it, Conway came in and jumped on top of Leppard as he was having sex. “While on top, Conway was making groaning noises and imitating motions of having sex and making sexual comments,” Ellin was quoted as saying.

“At one point, Conway grabbed her leg and lifted it up while she was engaged in sex with Jamie Leppard,” Ellin added.

Leppard has been charged with one count of rape and faces eight years in prison. His friend and partner in crime denied any involvement but was convicted and locked up by the court for a period of two years and three months.

Lepard has been registered on sex offenders list for life while Comway has been registered on the list for 10 years. Moreover, both have been barred from working with children and vulnerable adults for life.
