Thursday, Nov 13, 2003 A promising young Arsenal and England footballer has been jailed for 9 years for his part in a string of vicious sex attacks on women as young as 14. Marcus Artry, 18, from Olive Road, Cricklewood, took part in three different assaults, dragging one 14-year-old into a public toilet, telling her: "You are going to lose your virginity." Artry, who has been a member of the Arsenal youth team for eight years and represented England at Under-18 level, attacked the women between March 2002 and February 2003, along with 18-year-old Kyle Reid, from Woolwich, and a 17-year-old and 14-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons. Artry was convicted of one charge of rape, one of indecent assault, and one of indecency with child. the youngest member of the gang, who is now 15, was also convicted of rape, having earlier pleaded guilty to two charges of indecency with child, one charge of indecent assault and one of unlawful intercourse. Both he and Artry were jailed for 9 years each. Reid was jailed for 18 months and the 17-year-old was jailed for two years. A spokeswoman for Arsenal confirmed that Artry's contract had been terminated.
