Steubenville verdict – guilty with a twist of shame

I wrote about the rape by the young football players in Steubenville before, and now the trial is over. The boys were found guilty, but the girl was shamed during the trial and later by the media. Here are more details.

#Trigger warning#

Yesterday, the verdict was handed down in the Steubenville rape case. The defendants, Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond, were found guilty. Mays will serve at least two years in the state juvenile system; Richmond was sentenced to at least one year. And the attorney general may also bring charges against others who turned a blind eye to the assault.
