Jail for teens who tortured girl and put it on Snapchat

arrives at

TWO teenage girls who tortured another girl and broadcast it via social media have been jailed.

Chyane Stephenson-Dielhenn, 18, and a 16-year-old held their victim hostage in a care home in Dagenham, Essex, for more than eight hours in March.

The 16-year-old victim was made to swallow her own vomit and eat urine-soaked noodles. The pair also burned her with cigarettes. They posted videos on Snapchat and were sent other torture suggestions. The victim escaped when she was ordered to shower.

Stephenson-Dielhenn, of Islington, north London, denied false imprisonment and assault but was found guilty and jailed for three years at Snaresbrook crown court. The 16-year-old, of Tower Hamlets, east London, pleaded guilty and was jailed for two-and-a-half years.

Elaine Cousins, from the Crown Prosecution Service, called it a ‘sadistic’ attack by people the victim ‘considered to be friends’. She said the girl was ‘psychologically scarred’.
