Five Romanian farm workers have been jailed for the gang rape of a teenager.

The victim was abducted from outside a nightclub and taken to a remote car park where the group each took turns to rape her, filming the horrendous ordeal on mobile phones.

The Royal Court in Jersey heard how the terrified woman stayed silent throughout the attack throughout as she thought she was going to be killed.

Her attackers Florin Calin, 20, Dorel Diaconu, 23, Oprea Dobre, 18, Alexandru Dobrin, 18, and Marius Dobrin, 24, have each been jailed for 10 years after they all admitted two charges of rape, one of vaginal penetration and another of penetration of the mouth.

The group have now been told they will be considered for deportation.

A judge heard that the five men had gone to a nightclub when Marius Dobrin began dancing and flirting with the victim.

Crown Advocate Simon Thomas, prosecuting, said that he ‘hardly left her side’ for the rest of the night and that the victim ‘appeared to be very drunk’.

He added: "CCTV footage from the street outside the club shows Marius hovering over her, helping to light a cigarette and putting a coat over her shoulders.

"The other defendants can be seen waiting in a huddle nearby."

The five men drove the victim to Les Platons car park, where they raped her.

Calin then drove the victim and the other attackers back to town, where she was found by a member of the public who had heard ‘two screams’.

Requesting a sentence of ten years in prison, Crown Advocate Thomas said: ‘There is no case remotely like this one.

"That is to a say, a case where a young woman has been abducted by five men, driven to a remote location and raped while filming took place.’

The court heard that Diaconu and Calin both filmed parts of the attack – evidence which proved crucial to police when investigating.

The Bailiff, Sir William Bailhache, presiding, said that ‘by any standards these were appalling crimes’.

After the case, Acting Detective Inspector Christina MacLennan, head of the States police Serious Crime Unit, praised the bravery of the victim – who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder following the attack.

She said: "Although stranger rape is a particularly serious offence to investigate, thankfully they remain a rare occurrence in Jersey.

"The States of Jersey Police have the utmost determination to investigate and prosecute all sexual offenders and we can assure victims that there is help available from a number of agencies who are in a position to offer support and guidance through all stages of the criminal justice process.

As well as being jailed for 10 years, the five men will also be on the Sex Offenders’ Register for 12 years and were recommended for deportation.

A restraining order was also imposed banning them from contacting the victim.
