Teenagers Accused of "Depraved" Gang Rape Bragged of Drug Use on Facebook

On November 1, Patricia Montes, 15, and Erica Avery, 16 invited an estranged friend over to a home in Hollywood. There, they allegedly stripped her, beat her, and held her down as she was raped by a 19-year-old man.

On Friday, our sister paper in Miami posted photos of Montes' and Avery's respective Facebook profiles, where the girls mug for their cell phone cameras wearing provocative clothing while holding blunts and bottles of alcohol. The two girls were arrested.

Along with Montes and Avery, authorities also arrested three teenaged males: Dwayne Henry, Lanel Singleton, and Jayvon Woolfork. All except Woolfork have Facebook profiles showing pictures of themselves smoking, drinking, and with mouthfuls of dollar bills.
