Marina Lonina and her younger friend went to a mall in Columbus, Ohio back in February where they met 29-year-old Raymond Boyd Gates.
Gates bought the girls vodka, invited them back to his place, and while hanging out together, allegedly pinned the 17-year-old victim down and raped her.
Instead of calling for help, or trying to stop the rape, Lonina sat back and turned on the Periscope app on her phone, broadcasting the rape over the social media network until one of her followers there saw the 10-minute long stream and called the police.
Franklin County, Ohio prosecutor Ron O'Brien spoke to reporters about his disgust with Lonina's actions, not to mention Gates' alleged attack, saying:
"I have never seen a case such as this where you would actually live-stream a sexual assault. Based on the video that I saw, it didn't appear for the most part of it that she was attempting to help the victim … For the most part she is just streaming it on the Periscope app and giggling and laughing."
And while Lonina's attorneys are arguing that she made "substantial" efforts to stop the attack, and that she was influenced by predator Gates, local authorities obviously don't feel that way.
This could become really big -- and it sounds horrifying.
KeKe Palmer is accusing performer Trey Songz of 'sexual intimidation,' among other things, after she randomly appeared in his newly released music video for Pick Up The Phone that was released on YouTube on Friday.
From what we can gather reading Palmer's passionate Instagram message that contained the accusation, it appears she did NOT give Songz consent for her to appear in the video -- but the Scream Queens star takes it even further than that.
It is scary and potentially triggering to read, but here is her full, emotionally-charged IG message about what led up to her non-consensual appearance in the video and the hints about how she was forced into it (below):
