    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.

    The ultimate justice will be them getting railed in the shower by a large man with a taste for little boys. I hope as they are getting ravaged, the men whispers in their ear "You are going to lose your virginity." Anally of course.

    Is male on male rape really all that prevelant in British prisons? I had heard that it was not.

    Well, maybe, but there's a quote attributed to Churchill that goes something like this: "Spare me this plea about the tradition of the British Navy. The traditions of the British Navy are rum, sodomy, and the lash!"

    You know what,i left England about 14 years ago ,4 yrs ago i returned for a visit and was shocked by the lack of "equal" rights women have over there compared to the U.S. I think i was actually looking from the outside for the first time,at a society i was living in myself.I believe that is why women are treated in such a manner.Of course rapes happen here in the U.S.,but the fact that so many of these cases happen involving athletes is disturbing.I hope this kid get's what Rapists usually get in Jail,and i hope his career is over as a lesson.
