Two Steubenville High School students (l tor) Malik Richmond and Trenton Mays, both 16, have been charged with the rape of a 16-year-old girl and the town is still mad with the town’s Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla.

*Women are often overlooked or made to take on some of the guilt when it comes to rape cases.

Although, some stories have been fabricated, most are true and the women are in need of support when their claims are taken to authorities.

In Steubenville, Ohio, a 16-year-old girl was raped by members of Steubenville High School football team, Malik Richmond and Trenton Mays, both 16, last August, according to the Huffington Post.

The small town approximately 40 miles outside of Pittsburgh, is also in diehard football country and some residents feel the crime was covered up because of its devotion to the sports teams.
