Two players from Steubenville High School's legendary football team in Ohio were found guilty Sunday of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl while she was extremely drunk. And you know what? The evidence at the volatile and highly contentious rape trial for teen defendants Trent Mays and Ma'lik Richmond says that verdict is exactly what the pair deserved.
The girl, who hasn't been named, testified that she didn't remember the attack but awoke naked in an unfamiliar house. Multiple witnesses said they saw her so drunk she was throwing up repeatedly and barely able to stand or walk.
Video and photos of the night of the assault were leaked online, including some of 17-year-old Mays and 16-year-old Ma'lik carrying the victim. Obscene text messages, some written by Mays, also detailed what happened. The boys could be confined to a juvenile detention center until they turn 21.
Their lawyers even had the audacity to argue that since the victim didn't say no, the sex was consensual.
