Four men who groomed and sexually abused a vulnerable 15-year-old schoolgirl were today jailed for a total of 15 years.

Aivars Hauberts, 21, Ailands Aleksanders, 22, Hardis Gindra, 27, and Ludvigs Rudevics, 35, treated the schoolgirl as a sex object.

Hauberts, Aleksanders and Rudevics, who are all originally from Latvia, were found guilty at the High Court in Glasgow of raping her, but continue to deny this.

Hauberts and Aleksanders were each jailed for four years and Rudevics for six years.

Co-accused Gindra, who was found guilty of having under-age sex with her on two occasions in 2015, was jailed for a year.

At the High Court in Glasgow judge Lord Armstrong told the four accused: “You have each been convicted of the sexually exploiting and abuse of a vulnerable teenage girl who at the relevant time was only 15 years of age when this took place in June and July 2015.

“Aivarts Hauberts, Aillnads Aleksanders and Ludvigs Rudevics you stand convicted of raping this young girl. That is a grave crime from which all young girls and women should be protected.”

All four accused were placed on the sex offenders’ register.

Their young victim, who was in court to see them sentenced, made no comment.

The four accused bought lingerie for the girl, as well as plying her with alcohol and cannabis.

Their aim was to have sex with her.

Their victim who is now 19 and lives in Glasgow told prosecutor Bernard Ablett she drank vodka and Mad Dog at a birthday party and was ‘extremely drunk.”

She sobbed as she told of how Hauberts and Alekanders, who were at the party, at a flat in Burnfield Road, Glasgow, on June 3, 2015, raped her.

FRENCH PRIEST JAILED FOR 5 YEARS FOR ABUSE.

A French priest has been jailed for five years for sexually abusing dozens of children in the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s.


Bernard Preynat, 74, admitted abusing boy scouts while a scout leader in Lyon.
During his trial, he had told the court he had not understood how serious or grave his crimes were.


“It took me time to learn it was wrong and condemned given the age of the children,” he said in January.


Preynat assaulted at least 80 young boys between the ages of seven and 15. Ten of his victims testified at the four-day trial.
The abuse took place between 1971 and 1991.


Prosecutors sought an eight-year jail term, and accused Preynat of “shattering” his victims’ lives.


Last July, Mr Preynat was defrocked – stripped of his clerical status – after a church tribunal ruled he had committed “criminal acts of sexual character against minors under [the age of] 16”.


Representatives of victims also accused Preynat’s superior, Philippe Barbarin, of covering up the abuse.


Mr Barbarin, who became archibishop of Lyon in 2002, was originally handed a six-month suspended sentence in March 2019 for not reporting Preynat’s crimes, but this conviction was overturned by an appeals court in January.


At the time his lawyer hailed the verdict, saying the court had judged “the cardinal never intended to obstruct justice”.


Mr Barbarin has admitted he had known of “rumours” about Preynat as far back as 2010, but that he only became aware of abuse after a conversation with a victim in 2014. He later informed the Vatican of the allegations, and removed Preynat from his position – but never informed police.


The allegations then became public in 2015.
Pope Francis accepted Mr Barbarin’s resignation earlier this month.

PAT SAYS

Another case of serious abuse by a priest and a cover up by a cardinal bishop.

The priest is in jail and the cardinal has resigned.

Abuse and cover up is the Coronavirus of the Roman Catholic Church.

It has destroyed thousand upon thousand lives and destroyed the faith of many more.

Abuse and corruption is a pandemic in the RCC 😥

A gang of evil men who sexually exploited and raped a Sheffield girl when she was just 15 years old have been jailed for 70 years.

Four of the gang, Jasim Mohammed, 37, Nzar Anwar, 40, Kawan Ahmed, 31, and Shangar Ibrahimi, 30, who were said to have treated the vulnerable youngster as ‘a piece of meat’, were all found guilty by a jury of raping the youngster between 2010 and 2012.

A fifth defendant – Saba Mohammed, 41, – was also jailed for perverting the course of justice.Jasim Mohammed+5

‘The impact this has had on my life is devastating. My childhood was robbed and because of the trauma I’ve ended up with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and emotionally unstable personality disorder.

‘I have flashbacks of all the abuse I suffered and because of what happened I don’t sleep, I don’t eat and I’ve felt suicidal in the past. I have scars from the injuries I’ve suffered in the past and I suffer on a daily basis because of how my childhood was controlled and managed by these men.’

Judge William Slater described the complainant as an ‘extremely vulnerable and troubled young girl’.Saba Mohammed, 41, was jailed for four years after being convicted of perverting the course of justice+5

Saba Mohammed, 41, was jailed for four years after being convicted of perverting the course of justice 

She was referred to social services at a young age and arrived in Sheffield as ‘lonely and friendless having been rejected by her family’.

These vulnerabilities were exploited and she was effectively pimped out by a woman who introduced her to the group of Kurdish men who would go on to rape her.

A social worker who knew the victim said: ‘She just wanted people to like her and love her. She has very complex issues dating back to childhood. She would try to cling on to anyone who tried to be nice to her and she could not see that some people did not have her best interests at heart.’

Judge Slater sentenced Jasim Mohammed – who raped the victim ten times over a ten-month period – to 25 years. 

Kawan Ahmed received an 18-year jail term for two rapes, while Naza Anwar was sentenced to 15 years for one count of rape and one of perverting the course of Justice. 

Shangar Ibrahimi was sentenced to 12 years for one count of rape, while the final member of the gang, Saba Mohammed, was jailed for four years for perverting the course of justice.   

The five defendants showed no emotions as their fates were sealed and once her attackers had left the courtroom, Judge Slater turned to the victim to praise her courage and bravery for speaking out about the horrific abuse she suffered.

He said: ‘You’ve shown great courage in participating in this trial process. In extremely difficult circumstances both you and those close to you have conducted yourself with great dignity and restraint.

‘All I can hope is that things get a little better for you with the passage of time.’

The five defendants were also handed restraining orders which prevent them from contacting the victim for an indefinite length of time.

Chilling Photos From History Explained

Rare Collection | August 24, 2019

An underage 16 year old Demi Moore illegally bares it all for “Oui” magazine in 1981

Source: Pinterest

Before she was setting hearts on fire and stunning audiences in films like Ghost and A Few Good Men, Demi Moore worked for the Elite Modeling Agency in Europe. Most of her work consisted of pin-up shoots, but one spread for Oui magazine may have been a little too risqué. She claims that the photo shoot where she bares all was taken after she lied about her age, and that she was 16 at the time of the shoot.

At the time, Moore was desperate to get into the business and did whatever she had to in order to get her face out there. The photos were mostly forgotten until they showed up in Celebrity Sleuth in the late ‘80s. Moore didn’t let the creepy members of the press stop her momentum.
