Two high school football players from Steubenville, Ohio will serve time in jail for raping a 16-year-old girl.
A judge found Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond guilty of assaulting the girl while she was too drunk to resist, and videotaping the attack.
Both teens will serve at least a year in juvenile jail; Mays will serve an additional year for distributing nude pictures of the girl; and based on their behavior, both could remain in jail until age 21.
Ohio attorney general Mike DeWine says a state grand jury will convene to investigate whether additional charges are warranted.
The victim was not in the room when the ruling was handed down; but her mother read a statement saying the two boys lacked compassion and moral code.
There’s no decision yet on whether the victim’s family will file a civil suit.
