Authorities said the three men assaulted the girl after she passed out in a hot-tub shed on land owned by Paris’ father. Kelly Paris, 44, was sentenced in January and is serving 12 to 20 years for the sexual assault and for videotaping it.

Before the sentencing, the victim told the court she hoped neither man could ever victimize anyone else.

“What they thought was a night of fun was the worst night of my life,” she said. “Today, I’m not as quick to trust people. And over the past year, I’ve had a rollercoaster of emotions.”

Lewis and Paris didn’t speak at the sentencing. Their lawyer said his clients were treated more harshly than they deserved.
