Steubenville Defendant Released

One of the two boys convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl after a party has been released, according to a local television station. Ma’lik Richmond, a football player for Steubenville High School, was convicted in March 2013 of the rape of a West Virginia girl, who had been unconscious at the time of the attack. Richmond was sentenced to one year in a juvenile detention center, and his co-defendant, Trent Mays, was sentenced for two years. Mays was also convicted of using his phone to take a photo of the victim naked. In November, a grand jury indicted four adults for allegedly helping cover up the alleged rape , and a information technology officer was charged with tampering with evidence in October 2013.
