Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond, 2 Ohio high school football players, have been found guilty in the rape of a 16 year old girl during a party last summer.

Mays and Richmond have been accused of rape even though they didn’t have intercourse with the girl. Under Ohio law, penetrating a victim with your fingers is consider rape and this is what the teen boys did to the drunk girl.

CNN reports:

The ruling brings an end to a trial that gained media attention for its lurid text messages, cell phone pictures and videos, and social media posts surrounding the sexual abuse of the girl.

The victim was not in the courtroom when the ruling was read, but her mother gave a statement after the judge’s ruling.

Mays was sentenced to a minimum of two years in a juvenile correctional facility. Richmond was sentenced to a minimum of one year, but like Mays, he could be in detention until he is 21.

The Department of Youth Services will rule whether the two boys will be detained longer, Lipps said, adding it will depend on their behavior and rehabilitation. – Steve Almasy, CNN

The victim says she only remembers a little because she was drunk. Defendants are upset since pictures were posted a few days after the rape, saying it tainted testimony. Prosecutors did, however, prove the point from the photos that the woman was obviously “impaired”.

Both Mays and Richmond have to register as sex offenders as well.
