Men laughed at horrific abuse of women at party

THESE are the faces of the two men who laughed as they filmed themselves sexually abusing two unconscious women at a party – including by using a shoe.
Richard Hindmarsh, a father-of-two from Torquay, and Ibrahim Farmo joked as they molested their helpless victims over an hour.
One of the victims later died, Plymouth Crown Court heard.
Farmo, aged 39, and 30-year-old Hindmarsh filmed the abuse on a mobile phone and even filmed efforts of paramedics to save the life of the woman in her 20s, known as Miss X.
Jailing each for 12 years, a judge said that the use of the toe of a dirty trainer to abuse both women was “unbelievable”.
Judge Robert Linford said: “While I do not sentence you for taking the life of that poor, poor woman, it remains that the last thing that Miss X experienced apart from the life-saving paramedics was you two molesting her.
“The hurt experienced by her friends and family and that experienced by Miss Y must be almost unbearable.”
The court heard Farmo called an ambulance to his home in Connaught Avenue, Mutley, Plymouth, but Miss X never regained consciousness.
The other victim, in her 40s and known only as Miss Y, was treated at Derriford Hospital.
The dead woman’s mother said in a statement read to a packed Courtroom 3: “All of the happy memories of my daughter have been ruined by knowing what the two men did.”
Former maintenance worker Hindmarsh, of St Georges Court in Torquay, and ex-factory worker Farmo, had previously both pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault by penetration on March 4.
Judge Linford told the pair: “After a long period of drinking and drug-taking, Miss X and Miss Y lapsed into unconsciousness.
“You two saturated yourself with a cocktail of drink and or drugs and took advantage of the unconsciousness of your victims to savagely abuse them.
“You subjected them to repeated indecency.
“Over the years it has been my misfortune to have viewed a large number of pieces of video of people behaving in the most appalling fashion towards their fellow humans.
“The videos I have had to watch in this case is amongst the most disturbing I have ever seen.
“You are seen laughing, joking and taking drugs and making awful comments about the two women and it went on for many, many minutes,” the judge said.
