A jealous woman from Chicago recorded the rape of her unconscious “friend” and posted the assault on Snapchat.

Beth Rae Harris, 36, who was taken into custody and charged with non-consensual distribution of sexual images for the attack that occurred last month, was ordered to be held in lieu of $150,000 bail by a Cook County judge.

Assistant State’s Attorney Nora Gill said at the bail hearing that on August 24th, Harris and the 23-year-old victim got into a fight over a man they had met at a party, The Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The two then went to a club and a hotel where the victim consumed a lot of alcohol.

While at Harris’ apartment, things took a turn for the worst after the victim became unconscious.

Harris then egged on at least one man to rape the woman.

When the victim woke up the next day, she was naked and sore, and later discovered Harris used her phone to record the videos documenting her rape and posted them to her Snapchat account.

One video shows the victim laying naked while an unidentified man grabbed her buttocks and exposed her vagina to the camera.

Harris is allegedly heard narrating the horrific attack and casting insults at the victim.

At one point, she even warns the man not to wake the victim.

One of the victim’s followers on Snapchat witnessed the video and pointed out Harris in a photo.

Gill said the investigation into the sexual assault remains ongoing.
