Steubenville Ohio Teen Rape Case: 16-year-old girl raped by high school football players


The trial of two high school football players charged with the rape of a 16-year-old girl enters its third day Friday, with the judge granting immunity to a 17-year-old witness who is testifying against two of his classmates.

As many as 60 witnesses are expected to testify in the case, including the alleged victim, who was cleared by a judge to testify earlier this week along with two other teens.

Prosecutors claim that on August 11, the teen victim, intoxicated and impaired, was taken advantage of by the two defendants during a wild night of post-football game partying in Steubenville, and that the sexual acts — one in a car while party hopping, and another in the basement of a house — were committed while she was too drunk to consent.

Twitter posts along and cellphone images and videos were circulated among Steubenville teens allegedly depicting the girl being dragged, apparently unconscious, around the parties. The images and clips also allegedly capture sexual assault taking place while others looked on.

The nearly 13-minute video posted on YouTube consists mostly of one teenage male hysterically laughing as he entertains an unseen cameraman and others in the room with remarks such as "They raped her harder than that cop raped Marcellus Wallace in 'Pulp Fiction'," and, "They raped her quicker than Mike Tyson raped that one girl."

Suspects, Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond both maintain their innocence, insisting that the girl was alert and willingly participated in everything that was happening.
