Laughing Rapist who filmed his attack .. gets 6 years .

A man who filmed himself raping a woman at knifepoint on his iPad was today jailed for six years.

Iranian immigrant Hesam Khosravi, 24, kicked and beat his victim and threatened to tape her mouth up during the attack in Trafford, Greater Manchester.

He pulled her around by her hair and forced her to strip and perform a sex act before raping her, Minshull Crown Court in Manchester heard.

During the harrowing half-hour of footage, which was shown in court, Khosravi can be heard laughing and commentating on the assault in Farsi as the woman cries and sobs throughout.

-

Before the video was shown, Judge Adrian Smith warned those in court that the footage was "very distressing" and told the public gallery: "This is the time to leave if anyone does not want to watch."

2. The punishment seems not harsh enough.

I don't think he will be reformed by this punishment.

3. fuckin raped, humiliated and filmed and allowed the gallery to be entertained. nothing like a little

bit of respect to the victim.

this gang rape, rape filming and entertaining is becoming quite a fad with SOME men.

6 years? not near long enough.

5. He is also being deported to Iran

which may well have entered into the length of his punishment.

12. Rape is not treated like a serious crime

The man who tried to kidnap/rape me was on parole for a previous rape at the time. Since I had managed to get away by jumping out of a speeding car (he was taking me to a second location, and I knew that meant I could be killed), no charges were brought by the State (the City prosecutors, to their credit, were outraged and fought for the State to do their job).

A few months later, he successfully raped a 14-year old girl. Since was on "on drugs" - that is, drugged by him - he was only given 5 years.

8. Proving once again that legislators

and judges are clueless.

OR, they are out to protect rapists...

Legislators determine the length of sentencing as per minimums and maximums. Judges determine the actual time served.

Lately, only drug offenses get mandatory minimum sentences in a lot of places. You'll do more time for a few pills than for raping a child.

Which tells you where our nation's lawmakers stand on rape. Not as big a deal compared to making a few bucks selling pharmco products without a license...

9. Or that they're constrained by several hundred years...

 

...of precedental sentencing.

Too harsh and the judge hands the rapist an automatic ticket to appeals court. All too often the appelate court has less discression than the original trial court, since they're pretty much limited to: "Is this sentence in accordance with historical sentences for similar crimes?" And if the answer is no, they generally have no choice but to reduce the sentence.

10. Wonder why the frothing-at-the-mouth

for-profit-prison-owning-and-investing legislators have no problem with draconian drug sentencing then? And why victims of said draconian laws don't get their sentences reduced?

After all, several hundred years ago, cannabis, cocaine and opium were legal here...

but protecting Big Pharmco's "turf" so that only THEY can make money off addiction is FAR more important than protecting humans from rapists.

13. Well to start with you're comparing the USA with the UK.

 

Secondly, as you yourself said drug laws don't have any great weight of precedent (within the legal system), so the appelate courts don't have the same contraints to work within.

Thirdly you got it in 1. Rape and rapists aren't merchantable products. Drugs, textiles and slave labour are.

17. Ah, I did not realize this was a UK case

( Oughta learn how to read, me should ) though the concepts are similar in both countries.

I think it's time for women to go postal - figuratively - and demand that convicted rapists' stuff gets confiscated and given to the victims. LEOs in the US confiscate drug dealers' property and auction it off to profit the LEOs.

Time to get pissed and start demanding our laws protect us all ( male rape victims included ) but even then, our legislators are deaf to our pain and our struggles and our concerns here and over there. Just look at the Repukes refusing to reinstate the VAWA.

"We male conservative and teabilly legislators want the RIGHT to beat our wives! How dare you libbruls interfere with our "privacy?"

Peace out, TMM

18. UK prison sentences tend to be much, much too soft.

Even a murderer will typically only serve about 15 years.
