Four men, involved in the group rape of a 16-year-old girl in a sugar cane field in Far North Queensland and subsequently dumped on the street, were imprisoned.

Aaron Anau, Jeffrey Banu, Tom Ingui and Francis Peter, between 34 and 43 years old, used the girl in a Cairns field in December 2017.

The victim woke up naked from the waist with one of the men raping her in the trunk of a car, while the others watched meters farther away.

Three men – Anau, Ingui and Francis – were sentenced on Wednesday to 10 years in prison in the Cairns court. They are eligible for release after eight years.

Banu received a seven-year sentence for not physically raping the girl, the ABC reported.

Anau, Ingui and Francis initially gave the victim a lift in the evening, but she fell asleep in the back seat of the car.

The men then drove the girl to a wicker field, where she was raped in the trunk of the car.

The 16-year-old frantically grabbed her pants and tried to flee the men.

But she was chased by her attackers, who dragged her back to the car before she drove into town and threw her out.

& # 39; You treated her as if she were nothing more than an object and used her for your own sexual satisfaction & # 39 ;, Judge Tracy Fantin said during the sentence.

Judge Fantin said the men committed the offense because the victim was vulnerable and had a smaller frame than she.

The victim turned to drugs and was emotionally traumatized after the rape, the court heard.
