Four thugs made disabled girl drink washing-up liquid and then filmed it

A SICK gang of four have been locked up for terrorising a teenage disabled girl by forcing her to drink washing up liquid before beating her and filming the horror on a mobile phone.

The thugs, who included a 17-year-old girl, forced the 19-year-old to lick a pair of trainers, gagged her with tissue and tape, tied to her to a chair and hit her. They also poured water over her head, disabling her hearing aids, before dumping her blindfolded in a freezing park at 5.30am, saying 'we will leave her to be savaged by a dog'.

The next day, two of the group bragged about the horrific attack and showed off photos at least one of them had taken on their mobile phone cameras.

All four admitted false imprisonment and causing actual bodily and appeared at York Crown Court for sentencing.

Terry Spencer, 20, was jailed for three years, and Raymond Wilson, 28, whose flat in York was used for the torture, received a two-year and ten-month prison sentence.

Victoria Brill, 21, was jailed for two years and six months and a 17-year-old girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was handed a two-year detention and training order.

Judge Stephen Ashurst said: "This was not a prank that went wrong. This was cruel behaviour committed by the four of you over many, many hours until you decided to let her leave.

"The young woman must have been absolutely terrified not knowing what was going to happen next. This offence was persistent and sustained and each of you played a part. It would be invidious to say which particular episode was the most revolting."

David Bradshaw, prosecuting, said the 17-year-old girl used to bully Kelly at school. On the day of the attack she had been hanging around with the gang and went with them to Wilson's flat at around 8.30pm. They were laughing and joking together for about ten minutes before launching their terrifying attack.

Barristers for all four defendants, all from York, said they were remorseful for their actions. Three of them came from difficult backgrounds, and they may have been drinking and smoking cannabis at the time.

Spencer was serving a community order at the time and Wilson was on parole from a six-year sentence for ramming cop cars with a forklift truck.
