Two Steubenville, Ohio, high school football players accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl have been found delinquent by a judge — the juvenile court equivalent of guilty.
Trent Mays, 17, and Ma’lik Richmond, 16, were both sentenced to at least one year in juvenile jail and could be held until they are 21 years old. Mays was sentenced to an additional year for a charge related to distributing nude images of a minor.
This is a disgusting use of lament. Really, CNN? You mean this is the tragedy and not the fact that it took Anonymous to get involved before this was even brought to trial? Or that a young woman was raped? That’s not the tragedy?
