GoPro filmer jailed over rape footage
A MAN who filmed a teenage girl being gang raped at a western Sydney party has been jailed for at least five years.
Ayden Devereux, 26, previously pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual assault in company after using a GoPro camera to record his friends having sex with the 16-year-old in a bedroom at the St Clair house party in May 2015.
"The offending behaviour is disgraceful," Judge Christopher Hoy said at the Downing Centre District Court on Wednesday when sentencing Devereux to seven and a half years in jail with a non-parole period of five years.
Police found the footage after searching a car near Campbelltown train station while investigating graffiti offences days after the attack.
The 16-year-old was raped by at least four men with the 16-minute ordeal captured on the camera. It took investigators months to track down the victim and her alleged rapists, who were identified by their tattoos.
In August Kurt Stevenson, 26, Andrew Waters, 24, and Tristan Carlyle-Watson, 26, were all found guilty of aggravated sexual assault in company by a Downing Centre District Court jury.
Carlyle-Watson was found guilty of aggravated sexual assault in company but not guilty of sexual intercourse without consent.
Waters and Stevenson were both found guilty of multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault.
In her evidence, the 16-year-old told of being taken to the party where she was the only female and having a spiked beer "poured down my throat".
She told the court of waking up naked in a room and not knowing where her clothes were.
"I was sick, my belly was sore, I was bleeding everywhere," she said.
The girl, whose identity has been suppressed, didn't know she had been sexually assaulted until police contacted her.
Stevenson, Waters and Carlyle-Watson remain in custody and will face a sentencing hearing this month.
