(Scroll down for video) People are angry after learning that the teenager who watched and recorded a rape, will spend just 9 months in prison.

The woman was arrested after showing the world how a man raped her teenage friend rather than calling police.

The woman of Ohio, live-streamed the rape of a 17-year-old girl through the app Periscope, police said.

19-year-old Marina Alexeevna Lonina did nothing as Raymond Boyd Gates, 29, raped the woman, Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Ron O'Brien said.

Lonina and Gates were arrested on charges of kidnapping, rape, and sexual battery among other crimes.

O'Brien said that the three got together at the man’s home in Columbus, where the 17-year-old girl drank alcohol until she fell unconscious.

Gates held the victim down and raped her while Lonina live-streamed the violent sexual assault. Police received a call from a friend of Lonina, who was out of town and saw the rape on Periscope as it happened.

Lonina and Gates each faced more than 40 years in prison, but she got only 9 months after pleading guilty to a lesser charge of obstructing justice.

Gates was sentenced to 9 years in prison.
