A Chicago woman has been arrested and charged after she filmed and narrated a video of her passed out friend being sexually assaulted while intoxicated by an unidentified male.
Beth Rae Harris, 36, then posted the attack on the 23-year-old victim’s Snapchat account.
While the younger woman was unconscious, Harris let an “unidentified man or men sexually assault the victim,” investigators said.
In the video, the victim lay disrobed as an unidentified man grabbed her buttocks and exposed her private parts to the camera. Harris allegedly can be heard narrating the assault on the video, at one point warning the man not to wake the victim. source
When the victim awoke the next morning, she was not wearing her clothing and she said she “felt sore.” Harris told the victim that a man had sex with her while she was passed out, Gill said, but failed to tell her about posting the Snapchat video. Once at home, the victim discovered that Harris had used the her cellphone to post the video her Snapchat account.
Harris also recorded video of herself calling the victim names and claiming the 23-year-old had slapped her. Several of the victim’s Snapchat followers saw the video, and one of them identified Harris from a photo, police said.
The investigation of the sexual assault is ongoing, police said.
Judge James Brown ordered Harris held in lieu of $150,000 bail on a charge of nonconsensual dissemination of sexual images.
