    Ohio high school rape case.

    Had a nice long segment on todays Fox lunch time news with Megan kelly about this dispicable rape (If it is rape) case, where that 16 yr old got so drunk people were dragging her around like a rag doll etc..

    But in all the news segments i have heard on this case, not a single one has mentioned
    A) if any of the kids have been arrested for underage drinking
    B) whether any adult who supplied them got arrested or
    C) who was allowing their house to be used for an underage drinking party...

    Re: Ohio high school rape case.

    To add a little context to the article: Steubenville, Ohio, is a small, rural, community that is very proud and has a strong work ethic. The high school mentioned is known as a football factory, supplying young men to various college's athletic programs.

    Needless to say, loyalties are divided.

    " STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -- This week's rape trial involving two Steubenville High School football players is expected to boil down to one main issue -- consent.

    It won't be the job of the visiting judge hearing the case against the two 16-year-old students to consider whether their status as Big Red football players got them preferential treatment, whether more people should be charged or why high school kids freely had access to alcohol.

    All the things that have been hotly debated by Internet activists, athletic boosters and women's rights groups for more than six months won't matter in the courtroom in this Ohio River Valley town this week.

    Not even the disturbing video made by a friend of the defendants', in which the 16-year-old girl at the center of the rape case was derided as a "dead girl" and "so raped."

    Instead, prosecutors and defense attorneys will zero in on a murky span of several hours in late August, when five teens left a raucous party and piled into a Volkswagen Jetta.

    In the hours after, prosecutors say, the boys ferried the girl, who had been drinking, from party to party, sometimes carrying her when she couldn't walk."

    Having read a lot of the articles on this, I agree that nothing has been mentioned about A and B above, and very little about C. I do recall reading that the first party that they were at was at the house of an assistant football coach (go figure!) who is related to one of the current football players. I'm not sure if that is one of the accused players or not. In any case, that coach had to have known that minors were consuming alcohol in his home. As for the "other" two homes that this caravan visited that night, I haven't heard much.

    Given that the victim was from WV, just across the line, and many party attendees were from there as well, I wonder if some of those alleged nude photographs were transmitted across state lines, which would certainly make the distribution of child pornography a federal offense. There is so much more to what happened then we will ever know And the defense attorneys are trying to blame the victim and everyone else. The boys need to man-up and take some responsibility. Maybe Ohio State University will offer them scholarships. hmmm.

    Agreed. IF they had any sexual relations, smack them with the book..
    Though consent can't be given, so would not both parties be guilty since the guys were also drunk?

    So far as I understand it the boys digitally penetrated the girl, which in Ohio constitutes rape. So consent or no consent (I don't believe that she could consent), she is a victim but they are not.

    I'm not entirely sure what "digitally penetrated" even means, nor am I too keen to try and find out on a government computer.

    Fingers.

    This whole case needs to be tried outside the media spotlight. That being said it is not looking good for the defense
