Police with cell phoneTwo men were cleared of raping a 27-year-old Sacramento woman after the kinky cellphone footage they filmed of their steamy tryst proved the sex was consensual – and now she faces faces four-years in jail.

According to the transcripts of police interviews with the two unidentified men, they met Jasmine Levanna Kurre and her girlfriend in early 2011 and quickly developed a rapport with Kurre.

Once back at the second man’s apartment, Kurre began kissing the first man and the pair ended up having sex in the bathroom – where the sex video was filmed.

Flushed by their first encounter, the first man and Kurre traveled upstairs to the bedroom to film more of their antics and it was later on in the evening of February 2011 that she turned her attentions to the second man who owned the apartment.

After that, she went back to the first man and they ended up sleeping together, to wake up with no apparent animosity between the three.

However, a day later, the apartment owner and second man said that Kurre called him to collect her drivers license, which she had forgotten and a hair extension which had fallen out.

She informed him that she would be there at 6 p.m. and when the second man walked outside to meet Kurre, she was stood there with her arms folded.

The second man then said that suddenly someone grabbed him from behind and another man punched him.

‘Then the guy that was holding me hits me and then they continued to hit me and hit me,’ reported the Sacremento Bee.

The brutal beating apparently lasted almost ten minutes, during which he took around 60 punches – leaving him with fractured ribs and bruising behind his ear.

According to the second man, one of his attackers screamed out, ‘You think you can rape my girl?’ To which the anonymous apartment owner replied ‘I didn’t rape your girl.’

Kurre and the two men then took the second man’s cellphone and she then went to the police to offer her version of events.

‘We went into his house and everyone was just chit-chatting,’ Kurre said in her February 2011 statement. ‘And I was talking about my boyfriend, and I was talking about him and his work and everything.’

‘He made us drinks, and we first took a shot, and then he made us these pink drinks,’ she said.

Kurre then alleged that the group went to the Glass Turtle bar in Roseville and returned to the second man’s house where she went to use the bathroom.

She told police that the first man broke in and raped her and then so did the man who owned the apartment.

Unfortunately for Kurre, it was the first man who filmed their sexual encounters and not the man who she had beaten up and stole a cellphone from.

‘This is great stuff,’ Citrus Heights Police Detective Ron Pfleger told the man who shot the video, according to a transcript of his interview five days after the February 17th, 2011, beating of his friend. ‘This is exactly what you guys are hoping for.’

Instead it led to Kurre being charged with felony assault likely to produce great bodily injury and of another count of felony battery.

She was found guilty of both counts last Friday at Sacramento Superior Court – although jurors acquitted Kurre of the misdemeanor of filing a false police report.

It was not explained to the MailOnline by the Sacramento District Attorney’s office why Kurre was acquitted of this.

‘The case was complicated and emotionally charged,’ Deputy District Attorney Erin Blake said in a statement. ‘The jury worked hard, and ultimately justice was served.’

Kurre is scheduled to be sentenced on July 25th.
