Two Ohio football players guilty of rape

OHIO (NEWS1130) – Two Ohio high school football players have been found guilty of sexually assaulting a drunken 16-year-old girl.

Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’Lik Richmond, 16, have been found guilty of attacking the victim after an alcohol-fueled party last August.

They could be held in juvenile jail until they’re 21.

The case has divided the small community of Steubenville — some people saying more students should have been charged while questions were raised about the influence of the the team, a source of local pride.
