A court in Bolivia has sentenced seven members of a reclusive conservative Christian group to 25 years in prison for raping more than 100 women.The women weren't just drugged individually. Entire households were put to sleep with a derivative of belladonna sprayed in the windows and then the women and girls were raped. Talk about a sick scheme.
The men, members of a Mennonite group, secretly sedated their victims before the sex attacks.
The victims' lawyer said the 2000-strong Mennonite community where the rapes happened welcomed the sentence.
The group follows a strict moral code and rejects modern inventions such as cars and electricity.
An eighth man was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years for supplying the sedative used to drug the women.
The rapes happened in the Mennonite community of Manitoba, 150km (93 miles) north-east of the city of Santa Cruz.
