COLUMBUS, OH – A 19-year-old woman who used the live-streaming app Periscope to live-stream her friend being raped has been sentenced to nine months in prison.

For those of you who may not remember this story when we first reported on it last year, Marina Lonina was facing 40 years in prison after

Lonina and her 17-year-old friend met 29-year-old Raymond Gates at a Columbus mall last February. The next day, the two met Gates at an apartment where he supplied them with vodka.

Once the victim was heavily intoxicated, Gates sexually assaulted her. Despite telling Gates to stop, Lonina did not intervene and was allegedly “giggling and laughing” as she used her cellphone to live-stream her friend’s sexual assault to Periscope.

Police got involved when they were given a copy of the video on March 2, 2016 and, in October, Gates was sentenced to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of rape.

Lonina was charged with rape, sexual battery, kidnapping and pandering sexually oriented matter involving a juvenile. But she got her possible 40 years in prison drastically reduced when she pleaded guilty to obstructing justice for failing to report the rape or turn over her evidence.

As part of that plea agreement, Lonina was sentenced to only 9 months in prison for her part in the rape of her friend.

The victim told the court that she continues to have panic attacks since the rape and that Lonina not only filmed her being raped, she was also the one who manipulated Gates into raping her.

  • WTFOMGLOL

    The walking definition of “depraved indifference”.

  • 9 months !!!! WTF

  • Wtf?! Only 9 months?!!

  • Groupie Sidechick

    9 months seems like a pretty light sentence.

  • What a “friend “…

  • I’m just hoping she’ll make some ‘friends’ like herself in prison.

  • Explain to me how SHE gets threatened with 40 years and actually gets nine months, but an actual rapist gets probation. Not saying she isn’t at fault. But a definite double standard.

  • That’s my neck of the woods… Ohio’s judicial system sucks horribly…

  • Nathan Lovell

    Gates got nine years. Lonina got nine months.

  • DMaria Faraj

    Not even a full year? Pathetic. Shit like her will never change.

  • That’s exactly what I was wondering.

  • The guy who actually did the rape got only probation. That’s the wtf aspect of this ordeal.

  • He got 9 years

  • From the article:….Police got involved when they were given a copy of the video on March 2, 2016 and, in October, Gates was sentenced to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of rape.

  • IronWoobie

    This is BULLSHIT! The nasty little hellbeast deserved a MUCH LONGER sentence, as did the shitstain who raped her friend. God knows the victim’s going to carry that trauma in her brain for a lot longer than those horrifically short sentences.

  • jansav

    I am surprised she is doing nine months.

  • jansav

    “in October, Gates was sentenced to nine years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of rape.” what did you read?

  • “With friends like that……..”

  • He gets 9 years and she gets 9 months. So much for equality

  • Inferus

    And these are the teens who think they have all the world’s answers. smh

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Somebody just mixed the two up. Read slower, ya’ll.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    That is the worst sentence I’ve heard in a long time for such a heinous act. If not for Marina Vagina, that poor girl wouldn’t even have been raped. Then to live stream it to anybody anywhere? And LAUGH about it? That bitch has no soul. I can almost hear Karma sharpening her teeth for that bite in the ass. *skritch skritch skritch* It’s gonna hurt, too. Maybe someone will live stream it…

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Maybe one of her cell mates will record her hand washing Big Bertha’s granny panties. You know the only way you can dry those is draped over her face. That’s why you need to get them as clean as possible. (No, I haven’t had personal experience. But I slept at a Holiday Inn last night.)

  • McDanel_1771

    Not enough.

  • Stormblast

    How does this low down, raggedy bitch live with herself? Who the hell finds humor in rape, especially the rape of a friend? And with “friends” like this twunt, who needs enemies?

  • Stating The Obvious

    Not sure why you are pointing that out, We all read the article. Pretty sure Groupie is saying that the skank deserved more than 9 months for filming (while laughing) her friends rape.

  • Stating The Obvious

    What do you think the sentence should have been? I don’t agree with the light sentence they received but not sure what your “equality” means.

  • itsknotme

    With so many people filming their own crimes, can we speed up our Justice System by having cell phones with an ‘EZ-Pass to Prison’ app?

  • GGMon

    Plea deal. No one in their right mind is going to try to claim their innocence when there’s mounting evidence that shows this twatwaffle filmed her friend, and giggled at her expense. She was a dumb shit but not dumb enough to risk 40 years or possibly more. Jury would have seen that and she’d be toast. They should have put her on the registry

  • lucy b

    Which rapist getting probation are you referring to? This case the rapist got 9 yrs .

  • Buffettgirl

    Why must you be rude? I read his statement as coming from someone that is stunned by the difference, not as him repeating or stating the obvious. Cut folks a little slack eh?

  • Buffettgirl

    I bet he means they were both there during the commission of the crime, they should both serve the same time. It’s, well, kind of obvious if you look at it…

  • AlabamDeb

    I hope when this skank gets out in 9 months, the victim is waiting on her with a barbwire wrapped baseball bat and a cell phone (don’t forget to giggle!!). Now THAT is something worth live streaming!!

  • I got paid 104000 dollars previous year by working on-line a­­n­­d I did it by working in my own time f­­o­­r several hours a day. I used an earning opportunity I stumbled upon from company that i found online and I am so thrilled that i earned so much money on the side.

  • dilldoeh

    people who will help her record other chicks being raped? don’t get me wrong, that’s hot and all, but it’s kinda fucked up. i hope that doesn’t happen.

  • Taster’sChoice

    What’s worse is that a 9 month sentence will likely be 4.5 months or less. The victim will have to live with this the rest of her life.

  • Taster’sChoice

    She is female? Just a guess. Seems like they fare better than their male counterparts in this sort of debauchery.

  • scotsims

    She set up the rape, pimped out her friend, and broadcast it to the world, among other things. I’d expect child pornography would have rated a much longer sentence.
