A Chicago woman allegedly filmed and posted the rape of her unconscious 23-year-old friend on Snapchat after the two fought over a man they met at a party.

Prosecutors say Beth Rae Harris, 36, and the victim were arguing on August 24 but that the two eventually made amends.

They then made their way to a club and a hotel party where the victim drank heavily.

Harris and the victim then returned to Harris’s apartment on the 7400 block of North Artesian Avenue where the victim passed out, prosecutors said.

That’s when Harris allegedly encouraged at least one man, but possibly more, to rape the 23-year-old.

The victim woke up the next morning completely naked, and sore. Harris told her as she left that a man had sex with her while she was passed out, Assistant State’s Attorney Nora Gill said.

Upon arriving home, the victim discovered there were videos posted to her Snapchat account that showed her being raped.

Harris reportedly appears in videos posted to the victim’s Snapchat account insulting the 23-year-old and even narrating the rape at times, reported DNAinfo Chicago.

The videos were seen by Snapchat users and Harris was identified as the person who recorded and disseminated the videos of the rape, according to authorities.

Harris was arrested and charged with nonconsensual dissemination of sexual images. She is currently being held at Cook County Jail where bail was set at $150,000 on Thursday.

Police said no one else has been charged in the sexual assault and they they are working on identifying the man or men involved.

Harris’s attorney said she works as a masseuse and a model, and is a student at a beauty school. She has three children.

The 36-year-old also has pending unrelated cases for criminal damage to property and violating probation, court records show.

She has previously been convicted of battery, reckless conduct, resisting arrest and aggravated battery to a peace officer.
