Steubenville: 8 hours that changed everything

  • 2 high school football players charged with raping 16-year-old girl
  • Prosecutor says girl was “too impaired to say no, too impaired to say stop”

We’re keeping a close eye on the rape trial involving two high school football players in Steubenville, Ohio.

Trent Mays and Ma’Lik Richmond are charged with raping a 16-year-old girl last August. The case will not hinge on consent, but whether Mays and Richmond knew that the girl was too impaired to know what was happening the night of the alleged attacks.

Some of the alleged abuse was captured in cell phone images circulated in text messages and on the Internet, raising the profile of the case and bringing national attention to the town.

On “Raising America with Kyra Phillips,” HLN’s Christi Paul took a look back at the timeline of events from the night the girl says she was sexually assaulted.
