Gang Members Sentenced for Rape of 15-Year-Old

Three northern Virginia gang members, aged 17 to 25, have been sentenced to 10 and 20 year prison terms for beating and raping a 15-year-old girl last October. The three assailants attacked and raped the girl for dating a member of a rival gang. Alexandria Circuit Court sentencing Judge Donald M. Haddock said, "It's unbelievable to me that there could be groups of people who would treat other human beings so inhumanely." Haddock commented, "If it's going on on a daily basis in the city ... I hope every one of them is caught and punished."
