Rachel McElroy was just 18 and on her first college night out when she was sexually assaulted in Cork City in 2019.  Instead of helping the teenager, onlookers recorded the assault on their phones and posted the videos to social media.   Yesterday Rachel’s attacker Bagrat Kudzievi was sentenced to seven years behind bars. Rachel spoke to Ciara this morning with her reaction to the sentence handed down yesterday.
