SALEM, Mass. (AP) - A man and a woman in Massachusetts have been convicted of charges they sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl and recorded the attack using Snapchat.

The Boston Globe reports (https://bit.ly/2a8KL6I) 21-year-old Rashad Deihim and 20-year-old Kailyn Bonia were found guilty Tuesday by an Essex Superior Court jury of assault with intent to commit rape and related crimes stemming from the September 2014 attack.

During the trial, the victim testified that she had little memory of the assault, but that she awoke in severe pain in a hospital. The victim recalled drinking vodka with Deihim and Bonia on a couch in the woods near a Saugus elementary school.

A friend of the victim testified that she received graphic videos of the assault.

Deihim and Bonia are scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 6.
