Doesn't get much worse than this. Mani Sadri, 34, has pleaded “no contest” (a softer form of “guilty”) to sexual battery of a mentally disabled woman in March 2009.

Sadri and three of his roommates — two were convicted in July, while the other is nowhere to be found — brought the woman to their Culver City home and proceeded to engage in “sex acts” with her for an entire day and night.

What seems most shocking to us…

… is that Sadri is only facing an 18 months in jail for three counts of sexual battery, one of false imprisonment and another of battery — all misdemeanors. Plus five years probation, counseling and the dooming sex-offender stamp, but still. He seems to be getting off pretty easy, considering the victim had the mental capacity of an eight-year-old, and the lewdness of the crime in general.

Sadri will be sentenced to his term just three days before Christmas, on Dec. 22.
