‘High-five’ rapist pals get seven years in jail

Evening Times - - NEWS -

TWO men who high­fived af­ter film­ing them­selves rap­ing a woman in a Soho club have been jailed.

Fer­di­nando Or­lando, 25, and Lorenzo Costanzo, 26, both Ital­ian na­tion­als, car­ried out the at­tack at the Toy Room club in Lon­don on Fe­bru­ary 26 2017.

CCTV cap­tured the men high-fiv­ing and hug­ging each other af­ter­wards, while their 23-year-old vic­tim lay in the club’s toi­lets in ex­treme pain. The two men es­caped jus­tice for more than a year by re­turn­ing to Italy.

A jury found both men guilty of two counts of rape each. Judge Giles Cur­tis-Raleigh sen­tenced both to seven-and-a-half years at Isle­worth Crown Court.
