26 Year Old Man JAILED For Filming Gang Rape of 16yo Girl At Sydney House Party

Ayden Devereux, 26, operated the camera and could be heard encouraging the other offenders during a 17-minute recording of the incident at St Clair.

“More, next, next, next, next,” he said at one point.

The sentencing judge, Chris Hoy, described the offending as vile and revolting and said Devereux showed “no regard whatsoever” for the victim.

“It was gravely humiliating conduct,” he said.

The footage was uncovered when officers were investigating completely unrelated acts of graffiti two days later.

“These revolting acts may never have seen the light of day,” Judge Hoy said during sentencing.

‘She’ll do us one by one’

The court heard although Devereux did not touch the victim, his commentary suggested he was increasingly enthusiastic about what was happening.

“She’ll do us one by one,” Devereux said during the recording.

“The victim is motionless,” Judge Hoy said.

Two years after the gang rape and after seeing the video, apparently for the first time, Devereux decided to plead guilty.

He told a psychologist: “It’s shit. Wish I’d done something to stop it.”

The judge accepted there was no evidence Devereux knew of the victim’s intellectual impairment.

Devereux pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual intercourse without consent in company — an offence which carries a maximum term of 20 years.

He will spend at least five years in jail.

A juvenile was previously sentenced to at least three years in jail for his part in the gang rape, after himself pleading guilty.

Brisbane Grandmother CHARGED With Attempted Murder of Her Four-Month-Old Grandson

A four-month-old baby allegedly slashed in the face by his grandmother is no longer in a critical condition.

The baby boy was underwent surgery on Tuesday and his condition was serious but stable on Wednesday morning, a hospital spokesman said.

The grandmother has been charged with attempted murder and will face Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning

Multiple reports said he may be ‘scarred for life’ after the incident at a home in Brisbane’s north-west on Tuesday morning.

Neighbours said the baby and his mother were visiting the boy’s grandmother, who lives alone in the quiet and leafy suburb of The Gap.

The child’s mother, from Sydney, woke to the sound of her child screaming after 6am, police said.

She discovered her severely injured son in a ‘distressed state’ and the grandmother, and a knife, nearby.

Police were pictured inspecting a stainless steel meat cleaver outside the home on Tuesday

‘(The mother’s) clearly distraught over what’s occurred. She’s provided police with all the assistance she could,’ said Inspector Daniel Bragg.

The boy was rushed to hospital and with wounds to his face, cheek and neck, Seven News reported.

Police and paramedics who rushed to the horrific scene were left 'distressed', said police Inspector Daniel Bragg

The baby needed blood transfusions to keep him alive in the ambulance.

Inspector Bragg said both paramedics and police who rushed to the scene were ‘visibly distressed by what they were dealing with’.

Forensics police pored over the property at The Gap on Tuesday after the alleged attack

Forensics police pored over the house and photographed a stainless steel meat cleaver in the driveway.

The retired teacher, 64, was charged with attempted murder late on Tuesday.

A shocked neighbour, who woke to the sound of sirens, said: ‘The baby and the daughter arrived about two days ago, they’re from down south.

‘She (the grandmother) lives at the house. It’s just her. She’s very quiet and keeps to herself.

‘We all get together at Christmas time and have a big street party but she, the grandmother, never wants to come.’

The grandmother faced Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning but had her matter adjourned so she could undergo a medical assessment.

She did not apply for bail.

Cairns Teenager Jailed For Just TWO WEEKS

A young woman has been sentenced to just two weeks behind bars for her part in a violent home invasion last year because she has ‘her whole life ahead of her’.

Kerazahn Elizabeth Fourmile was just 17 when she and four others kidnapped the housemate of one of her co-accused, The Cairns Post reported.

The woman, 32, was tied up with cable, tape and glue on March 3 last year and stuffed into a vehicle.

She had been hit and kicked in the attack, and was forced to speak to a camera phone about owing money.

‘Sorry for being a… sorry for owing money,’ she said on the clip, before she was dumped out of the vehicle.

Now 19, she has been sentenced to just two weeks behind bars after pleading guilty to deprivation of liberty, assault, armed assault in company and burglary

Fourmile, now 19, pleaded guilty to deprivation of liberty, assault, armed assault in company and burglary.

While on bail for her crime, Fourmile breached her bail 17 times, was arrested for driving unlicensed and allegedly stole a motorbike worth more than $11,000.

The female housemate was tied up with cable, rope and glue and forced to say sorry for owing money on camera before she was dumped out of a vehicle

Judge Terry Martin SC said he was reluctant to be harsh in his sentencing because he believed Fourmile had time to rehabilitate herself.

‘You’re just so young,’ he said.

‘You’ve got your whole life ahead of you… You can make something of your life.’

Judge Terry Martin SC said Fourmile's offending showed she was 'capable of committing any offence' but chose not to jail her for long in the hopes she would 'make something' of herself

However, he did note Fourmile appeared ‘capable of committing any offence’ and that the impact on her victim had been ‘enormous’.

The teenager, who had been in custody for 234 days, was sentenced to three years behind bars.

But because of what Judge Martin referred to as her ‘extreme youthfulness’, she is eligible for parole in just two weeks.

For A Measly $200,000, Channel Nine Has Bought A PR Disaster

Wilkinson, a highly respected journalist and TV presenter, shocked the media world and TV viewers on Monday night when it was announced that she was jumping ship from Nine — where she had worked for the past decade — to rival Network Ten. She will join infotainment show The Project.

Apparently, Wilkinson insisted on being paid the same amount as Stefanovic, who is thought to take home $2 million a year compared to her $1.1 million.
Channel Nine reportedly offered her $1.8 million, but wouldn’t match her co-star’s salary.

Both salaries are incredibly generous — and I doubt many people are debating whether they are being fairly compensated for their work — but that’s not the point.

What was at stake was the principle, with one employee doing the same work but earning more than a female colleague.

Should the rumours be true, then questions need to be asked about why Nine insisted on this gender pay disparity continuing and what its reasons are.

Could there be any justifiable reasons for paying women less than men?

Women are speaking up

Whether it be harassment, assaults, lower pay or gender bias, the growing chorus of voices demanding an end to gender inequality is getting louder.

How Nine could not have heard those voices is a poor indictment.

Not only has Nine lost one of its best on-air talents, but its own credibility on gender has also taken a nose dive.

It’s not the first time Nine has been caught treating male and female employees differently.

In 2016, it was revealed that while NRL Footy Show co-host Beau Ryan took home $800,000 a year and flew business class, fellow host Erin Molan was paid $100,000 and had to fly economy.

Bad timing for entertainment industry

The announcement couldn’t have come at a worst time, as the entertainment industry grapples with the snowballing Harvey Weinstein sexual assault and harassment allegations.

At the time of publishing, more than 40 women have publicly accused Weinstein of acts from inappropriate touching to rape.

The fact that Weinstein got away with this despicable behaviour is only half the story; apparently, most of Hollywood was well aware that the Oscar-winning producer was a serial predator and his actions were not only tolerated, but Weinstein was actively protected from any consequences.

On the weekend, the social media hashtag #MeToo encouraged countless women across the world to reveal their own experience with sexual harassment.

The scale of the problem is vast, but for far too long it has been considered something that “just happens”.

But the growing anger and frustration that women have felt over gender discrimination, harassment and assault cannot be ignored.

A tone-deaf decision

As a public relations issue, losing Wilkinson to a network that was prepared to pay the same rate as Stefanovic is bad news for Nine.

Wilkinson has been widely praised for her stance. Social media has been flooded with posts congratulating Wilkinson.

For Nine to refuse to provide pay parity for Wilkinson was a tone-deaf decision that is woefully out of step with society’s growing expectations that women should be paid the same as men.

This was Nine’s opportunity to take a stand and lead the way for the entertainment industry, which continues to maintain its dinosaur-era policy of treating women like pretty props.

For just $200,000 — chump change for a company like Nine — the network has placed itself in an unnecessary position.

Nine released a statement, saying it was “disappointed” that it was “unable to meet the expectations of Lisa Wilkinson and her manager”.

Many viewers and women will feel equally disappointed that Nine was unable to see that Wilkinson was worth at least the same amount of money as her co-host.

‘This Isn’t Goodbye, I’ll Talk To You Every Day’

Chase Clarke arrived at his wife’s funeral wearing her wedding ring on his left little finger and an Armani watch she gave him the day they married on his wrist.

He left with his wife’s coffin resting on his left shoulder.

There were just six months between the carpenter marrying the nurse in Sydney and her death in Fiji earlier this month.

Kelly, 24, died of severe bilateral pneumonia on October 7 less than two days after falling ill.

Her husband, 28, led hundreds of mourners at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church at Forestville, in Sydney’s north, at a service on Tuesday afternoon.

Kelly Clarke (left) was only 24 when she died of bilateral pneumonia just 30 hours after complaining of stomach pains

Outside the church before the funeral began Clarke practised the eulogy he would deliver for his departed bride.

‘To my beautiful wife, things shouldn’t be this way,’ he said.

‘(You were) everything that I wanted in a woman.

Mourners were seen comforting each other near the hearse which carried Kelly's body to Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church at Forestville, in Sydney's north

‘You would have been the best mother for our kids. That didn’t come to be.’

Mr Clarke remembered a beautiful, intelligent, caring woman with whom he shared a short but normal married life.

‘I’m sorry for all the pain and fights,’ he said. ‘But I can’t remember them.

‘I know this isn’t goodbye. I will talk to you every day and think of you.

‘I know I will see you again. I just don’t know when.’

Mr Clarke paid tribute to the beautiful, intelligent and caring woman he had devoted his life toAfter the funeral, a mourners gathered with Kelly's family at a nearby Rugby ClubChase had his speech handwritten on palm cards ahead of his emotional delivery in the churchThe 28-year-old was seen rehearsing his tribute outside the chapel as he prepared to farewell the love of his life

Kelly had been a well-regarded nurse who was a ballerina as a child.

Mr Clarke’s lasting memory of her would be perched like a dancer on the edge of a pool in Fiji.

The couple had been in Sigatoka celebrating their honeymoon while they attended a friend’s wedding.

They had conquered fears together on the trip, kayaking from one island to another just to find a cheaper meal.

But before the end of their holiday Kelly fell seriously ill.

She died in Lautoka Hospital, north of Nadi less than two days after first complaining of stomach pains.

She went into cardiac arrest five times in her final hour.

Chase Clarke (right) told mourners he would continue to speak with his wife 'every day'

Doctors originally suspected she was suffering from typhoid and she had been put into an induced coma.

Mr Clarke’s last conversation with his wife was by telephone shortly before she lost consciousness.

‘I just told her I loved her, stay strong, we’re going to get out of this,’ Mr Clarke previously said.

‘She just told me she was scared she was going to die.

‘She was panting through her breath. I never spoke to her again.’

Mr Clarke was later forced to identify Kelly in a refrigerated shipping container containing other bodies.

He then had to dress his wife’s body for her return to Australia.

Mr Clarke has since spoken of the poor medical facilities in Fiji.

‘It’s not something I’d want anyone to experience,’ he has said. ‘It’s just gut-wrenching.’

Kelly worked as a nurse at Westmead Hospital, and was remembered as a 'dedicated nurse who loved working with children'

Mr Clarke was still thinking of others on Tuesday as he warned travellers to be aware of the dangers of falling ill in countries like Fiji.

‘Just remember you’re just a number to them,’ he said.

Tuesday’s service began with Ed Sheeran’s Perfect and also included eulogies by Mr Clarke’s mother Linda, Kelly’s father Ian Shaw and her best friends Tam Brown and Imogen Payter.

The service ended with Secret Garden’s You Raise Me Up.

Mr Clarke was comforted by a sea of friends and family who came to pay their respects to his wife

Mr Clarke was unsure if better treatment could have saved his wife’s life.

‘There are a lot of possibilities that we don’t really understand at the moment,’ Mr Clarke said.

The couple, who married in April, had been planning on having children.

‘We were moving forward as a couple. It’s just one step at a time now.’

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead where Kelly worked issued a statement after her death.

‘Kelly was a dedicated nurse who loved working with children and will be greatly missed by her colleagues and patients,’ it read.

A haka after the service recognised Mr Clarke’s father Doug’s New Zealand heritage.

Mr Clarke, his father, mother Linda and Kelly’s parents Ian and Karen Shaw walked ahead of the hearse.
